tshirts to help haiti

After seeing this type of post on a number of other sites, I didn’t want to reapeat the same thing.  However, if one additional person sees this and contributes then I guess it’s worth it.

By now you know what the deal is.  There are many ways for you to get involved and help those in need.  This is one way you can help and look good at the same time.  Here are some t-shirts I liked that can help out the victims of the Haoiti earthquake.

A nice design from Threadless featuring the phrase “Men anpil chay pa lou”, Many Hands Make the Load Lighter.  All proceeds are going to the American Red Cross Haiti Relief and Development Fund.

I like the simple, to the point design over at Doubletake clothing.  Proceeds go to serveral organisations including UNICEF, Doctors Without Borders, and CSI Ministries.

Sales of this tee stop at the end of the month so move fast if you want to get hold of it.

This is one of my favourites from a limited edition Timberland collection, but they don’t ship to the UK!

All profits from this collection go to the Yéle Haiti earthquake fund.

However you decide to help whether through a t-shirt, text, donation or hopping on a plane, remember the check out he organisation you’re giving your money/time to and ensure most if not all proceeds are going to those who need it most.

Happy New Year!

2009 was one of the most memerable years of the decade.  From the election of a black president to the death of the most famous white singer.  Maybe not as widely recognised but still important (to us at least) was the launch of our t-shirt company.  Thoughout 2010 we’ll be working hard to bring out more products and working to make this a success, so look out for more from mayamada.

If you haven’t already, join our Facebook group.  As well as the latest news, we’ll be putting up sneak peeks at upcoming designs throughout the new year.

Happy New Year from mayamada!

Mayamada Shop Launch

It’s been a long time in coming, but we’ve finally launched our site and shop where you will be able to get your hands on mayamada t-shirts. You can see the site here:
What can you expect from us?  Collective tees; t-shirt collections with their own theme and story.  As well as pop culture and our quirky sense of humour, we also take some cues from Japanese culture (as you may have guessed from the name).
Take a look at what’s available right now:

Styles (men | women)

A style to fit you.  We enjoyed coming up with different logo variations before deciding on one, but we though we’d keep the creative process going with a collection of mayamada styles.

Styles: Original Styles: Entertainer Styles: Rubiks

Character (men | women)

A touch of Japan with a different kanji character to match your own.  Check back for more characters in the coming weeks.

Character: Love Character: Strength

Ladies and Gents (men | women)

A range of designs showing exactly what these guys get up to when they’re not directing restroom traffic.

Ladies and Gents: Dance Ladies and Gents: Dance Ladies and Gents: Sleeping In

And this is just the beginning.  Follow the updates on our blog for new additions to these collections and brand new collections entirely!
We also want to hear from you, so drop by our Facebook page and let us know what you think. Remember to take a picture of yourself in your mayamada tee and post in on our page.  We’ll be looking out for the best to go in our hall of fame.

A Picture Tells 1000 Words

Well, October has come and gone but we are still working on getting our site up and designs ready for sale.  Rest assured we are working hard to launch very soon.

In the mean time, we want to let you know our coming plans for our blog.  As well as letting you know the latest developments going on; new designs, promotions etc, we will also be giving our thoughts on news relating to clothing and entertainment.

Most of you have most probably seen the recent Photoshop controversy over the Ralph Lauren models.

Now I don’t know about you, but I like it when women – and humans in general for that matter – have have a pelvis bigger than their head.  But that’s just me, but clearly everyone is different.  To be fair, judging from this less altered photo of Filippa Hamilton, I can see why they had to virtually take off a few pounds.

She’s a mess!  Good job Ralph, that could have been one embarrasing photo.  Seriously though, this kind of size is more medically impossible than attractive and I’m sure most sane people will agree.  Many are waking up to this though as recently France want to include warnings on images that have been doctored to remove ‘imperfections’ (in this case, her waist).  This is good idea on paper, but really once you see the image the damage is done.  As they say, ‘a picture tells 1000 words’.

So if a picture says 1000 words, then a video must say at least…1 million, right?  Maybe that’s why this Dove comercial made such and impression on me.


Anyway, stay tuned for more news on our launch in the coming weeks… advanced warning however, we can’t offer minus sized t-shirts.

October Launch

We will be launching the mayamada shop towards the end of October, so make sure you’re first to get a hold of our first set of tees when they go on sale.

As part of out launch we’ll be introducing a design competition where you could win yourself some money.  Keep checking the blog and join our Facebook fan page to get the latest info.

Almost At The Starting Line

Ok, so we haven’t exactly been prolific with the posts…We have been busy getting the first batch of t-shirts ready and it is finally coming together.  Expect more updates including news on a competition coming soon to a Facebook page near you.
