This is just one more big Caps Lock THANK YOU to all of you that purchased a Christchurch relief tee. Your support has helped Christchurch in so many ways and your generosity is truly appreciated.
As I write this, you’ve all helped raised over $99,000 and counting for Victim Support, Canterbury SPCA, St John and the Salvation Army. So I must thank all of you that have purchased a t-shirt or even just told someone about the t-shirts. We’re stoked to see so many of you get behind this.
We’ve been completely humbled by how many people have offered their support – from people on facebook buying t-shirts for people in Christchurch that have lost everything, to all the businesses that have chipped in and ensured as much as possible goes to Christchurch – it’s really special to see.
With that in mind it’s about time we say about thanks to all of the amazing companies we work with that have helped ensure more money from each t-shirt went to Christchurch. If I knew how to do one of those digital love hearts, I would have typed one just back there.
AS Colour gave us free tees for the volunteers and reduced their prices for all the other Christchurch tees.
Uniscreen hooked us up with cheaper inks. Man, we used so much ink on all those tees as well.
Deadline Express have snuck tees on planes and driven all over town for us.
Direct Payment Solutions removed the transaction fees for all the Christchurch tees.
It really is at a time like this that people stand up to be counted, and we’re absolutely chuffed that so many people are helping – the real NZ way of doing things. I think one thing that’s definitely struck everyone here at Mr Vintage is how caring everyone’s been; from letting out spare rooms, to volunteering time to help with simple things like care packages, to the UC Student Volunteers trading their beers for spades – it’s all been amazing.
We really feel that it shouldn’t take a tragedy such as this for people to show such love, and it’s really on our hearts to carry this loving and caring nature in to our everyday lives. We as a business are going to make a real effort to help out as much as we can, regardless of tragedy. Watch this space; we’re looking forward to keeping up this level of effort and community spirit in all our future endeavours.
