Tees With A Purpose

Tees With A Purpose was born out of a desire to help people doing "good works" gain support, send a messageor raise money. Our desire is to partner with you as you bring your children home, reach your fundraising goal or simply outfit your groups with fun T-shirts, hats, sweatshirts and other printable items.

MudLove

In an attempt to deny self, MudLOVE was built on the idea of giving back. Starting with nothing more than an old stamp set, a box of clay, and an unadvised business plan of giving 20% of all sales to clean drinking water projects in Africa, MudLOVE was born, and God-inspired creations emerged. The hope of MudLOVE is to be an inspiration to people, not just providing Africans with clean water, but also encouraging and loving broken people. What one may lack in clean water, another may lack in love. MudLOVE will work with families and offers special discounts for fundraising efforts!

The Bead Amigas

Bead Amigas began as a craft project in rural communities near Chinandega, Nicaragua. In a country where the average income is less than $2 per day, this project means the difference between a hungry child and a healthy one. Bead Amigas provides an opportunity for impoverished women to run their own microenterprises by creating beads made from paper which they then use to make jewelry. As there is only a very small market in Nicaragua for selling the jewelry, the project is sustained by sales in the U.S. Using upcycled wallpaper sample books which would have otherwise been discarded, the women hand paint sheets of the paper. The paper is then cut into long triangular strips and rolled around a piece of wire. As the paper is rolled it is glued and formed into a beautiful, unique bead. Each bead is then glazed with many coats of a non-toxic water based varnish. The beaders have become artisans and take great pride in their work.The result is beautiful jewelry and changed lives. Bead Amigas empowers Nicaraguan women to create a better future for their families through art, education, and entrepreneurship. 100% of net proceeds from sales of these recycled paper beads are returned to their villages in fair wages, training, and community development projects. Bead Amigas offers wholesale pricing so that families can purchase quantities and sell them to earn funds toward their adoption or other mission project!

Both Hands Foundation

Both Hands mission is "to serve widows, orphans, and adoptive families." Our purpose is to help people raise funds for orphans while serving widows through home improvement projects.

There are 160+ million orphans in the world and while we can’t change the world, we can make a world of difference to some. One of the main reasons people don’t proceed with the adoption process is because of the huge price tag, often times between $15,000-$30,000. Our vision is that there will be Both Hands projects happening every weekend, in every state in the US. Both Hands Foundation is a 501c3 organization.
