Dave Eggers T-Shirt, and an Introduction to the 826 Project
Posted by League Commissioner on November 08, 2011 0 Comments
Novel-T couldn't be prouder to offer our Dave Eggers t-shirt, officially licensed by Dave. It features the illustration of a stapler that he drew for the introduction of A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius.
A dollar from each shirt, as from almost every shirt we sell*, is donated to 826 NYC, a non-profit after-school creative-writing tutoring program based in Brooklyn, which Dave helped found. (Hence the 26 on the back of the Eggers shirt.)
The 826 project started in San Francisco with 826 Valencia, then 826 NYC opened, and since then tons more have cropped up all over the country. If you're unfamiliar with the program, have a look at Dave's inspirational TED Talk from a few years back when he described the idea.
*for the Vonnegut and Trout shirts, we donate the $1to Doctors Without Borders
