This months Live Shot Charity Tees: Strength For A Reason and Incendiary!
Strength for a Reason's shirt benefits the family of John Barlow. John was an important member of the Pennsylvania hardcore family and was a friend of many of us here at Cold Cuts. His passing in January left his wife and child with some financial difficulties. All proceeds from this shirt will help them.
Incendiary's shirt benefits the Huntington Disease Society of America
Huntington's Disease is a genetic brain disorder which effects muscle coordination and leads to cognitive decline. A close friend of the band has multiple family members battling with this disease. While Huntington's Disease currently has no cure, the HDSA is dedicated to both finding a cure as well as improving the lives of those currently afflicted with the disease.
We are very excited to bring you another installment of Live Shot Charity Tees. This month: Strife, Turnstile, and Expire!
Here's a little about the causes:
Strife: Hope For Paws - http://www.hopeforpaws.org
Hope for Paws is a non-profit animal rescue organization, based in Los Angeles, California. They rescue dogs and all other animals who are suffering on the streets and in the shelters. HFP foster these animals in their home, cage free, until they can find them permanent, loving families. Their goal is to educate people on the importance of companion animals in society to stop the cycle of animal neglect and abuse.
Chad, Rick, and I all have dogs. Both of Rick's dogs are rescues as is Chad's dog. We chose Hope For Dogs as our charity to help dogs that are on the streets and in shelters get rescued and have the good life that they deserve.
- Andrew & Strife
Turnstile: CECIS Hondruas - http://www.ceciskids.org/
Half of profits will go to my sister and her trip to Honduras to help build a school for underprivileged. We chose this charity not only to support a family member trying to do something great, but to also help the underprivileged youth in a developing country. The profits will go to building supplies, transportation, and other means to make the good act possible.
- Brendan & Turnstile
The other half will go toward the benefit of a close friend of mine who was recently diagnosed with cancer. I chose this because just like with Brendan's sister. It feels even better to give the proceeds to someone doing something great that we can watch happen first hand.
