Beginning June 15th, the Give a Damn Campaign, a project of the True Colors Fund, is pleased to announce new additions to their Celebrity T-Shirt Project. At the organization’s star-studded sold out “Home For The Holidays” benefit concert on December 4th at New York’s Beacon Theatre, Cyndi Lauper unveiled the first Give a Damn Campaign t-shirt, designed by Cyndi herself and presented by Van Gogh Vodka. 100% percent of the proceeds will go to the Give A Damn Campaign. “Van Gogh is very enthusiastic to have our partnership efforts with Give a Damn Campaign expand into a new dimension of awareness. T-shirts have long been the billboard for generations to express themselves and give voice to a cause,” said Norman Bonchick, Chairman and CEO of Van Gogh Imports.
Adding to the collection this summer, four brand new t-shirts have been designed by the following celebrities: Emmy Award-winning actress Jane Lynch, Tony Award-winning artists Alan Cumming & Idina Menzel and comedian Chelsea Handler. “I am thankful to Van Gogh Vodka for their support of this exciting new project and to Jane, Alan, Idina and Chelsea for their unwavering commitment to equality,” said Cyndi Lauper, co-founder of the True Colors Fund and Give a Damn Campaign. .
Not only is style contagious, but so is awareness. Amongst the celebrity supporters are Whoopi Goldberg, Elton John, Clay Aiken, Kim Kardashian, Jason Mraz, Susan Sarandon, Cynthia Nixon, and Anna Paquin.
The Give a Damn Campaign Celebrity T-shirts, presented by Van Gogh Vodka, will go on sale June 15th for $35 each. Please visit www.wegiveadamn.org to purchase.
