Collections that Support a Cause: Read About It
Here at Got Funny, we don’t think we can make the world a better place, but maybe, just maybe, we can make it less shitty. It’s always been about more just than making silly shirts for sexy people – it’s speaking loudly about who you are and the things you believe in.
We recognize that not everyone starts in the same place in life and there are profound inequalities and inequities in society that disadvantage certain people based on who they are. In our eyes, all humans deserve to be loved and celebrated regardless of ability, gender, race, religion, nationality or any other quality that people choose to be dicks about nowadays. That’s why we choose to give a portion of profits from certain collections to various charities that support causes we personally believe in and align with our brand’s values.
Gen-Z For Change is 100% youth-led activist organization fighting for the protection of an individual’s social and political rights, not just in the United States, but across the world. For example, something that amazed us, was their partnership with the legal office International Refugee Assistance Project (IRAP) garnered over 150K signatures to help an Afghan family targeted by the Taliban get a U.S. visa. Whether raising millions for abortion funds, engaging with Congressional and Senatorial elections and platforms or distributing science-based vaccine information during the COVID-19 pandemic, Gen-Z For Change does fantastically impactful work and we are proud to support their priorities and mission at Got Funny.
Women’s reproductive rights are under attack not just in the United States, but all over the world. The recent overturning of Roe v. Wade has proven to millions of Americans that healthcare rights is a current issue that demands our activism. NARAL Pro-Choice America is an organization of more than 4 million members that believe in access to abortion care, birth control, paid parental leave and re-education in an era of misinformation. They operate in both social and political realms, educating citizens, law-makers and prominent figures alike about the dangers of anti-choice policies and offers site-viewers immediate opportunities to get involved with this pressing issue.
Science, technology, engineering and mathematics are fields that have long been, and still are, male-dominated. Today in the United States, women make up only 24% of the STEM workforce and this gender gap is far larger in other parts of the world, including Japan, India, and the European Union. Women and girls face a laundry-list of barriers against their entry into STEM whether it be underrepresentation, biases and stereotypes or gendered roles and expectations affecting a woman’s career opportunities. As a result, we have carefully chosen to support organizations that advocate for women’s broadening participation in STEM and offer resource networks for women and girls of all ages to pursue their interest in STEM.
To put it delicately, the environment is pretty thoroughly fucked. This generation is facing a true ‘do or die’ moment in human and natural history and we simply can’t stand-by. We’ve chosen to support a few organizations through our Earth Day collection because there are more than a few areas of the environment that need our support. Some of the causes we are consequently supporting include decarbonization in problematic sectors, plastic pollution, closing global energy disparities and Indigenous land rights.
