From the Charitable mind of Jiggs comes A Song I Heard the Ocean Sing (ASIHTOS )shirts to benefit the Japanese people through The Red Cross.
I have had this design for quite some time. I have been tweaking it and changing it for about 2 years, trying to get it the way I like it. Originally I had planned on doing it over the summer (2011) in hopes the song would become more of a staple, but it’s not that well known of a beer brand. Considering what happened in Japan, I thought it would be a good thing to do a run of this design specifically to benefit relief efforts there.
I will account for all shirt costs to produce these, then donate the rest to (at this point) the American Red Cross. In the rare event that donations exceed costs for the relief efforts there, some funds would be redistributed to domestic issues (per the Red Cross website). I am open to changing the destination of the funds if someone can provide me with good information on where else to donate.
The shirt color is chestnut to represent the bottle color. Chocolate will be used for the long sleeves and hoodies. The print is white, red, and black and features the kanji symbol meaning ‘ocean’ or ‘sea’. The image will be roughly 7 inches across the front. The design is based off of the Asahi beer brand (which, I am told, is the most popular beer in Japan), and features the acronym for the song in the main text. As well as a hopeful message of “Shining Light in Darkness Deep” where the brewery information would normally be. For shorts sleeves, I will be using Gildan 100% cotton shirts, long sleeves will be my standard Gildan 2000. The only difference is the ladies shirts will be style 64000L. The hoody is style 18500 (7.5 oz.). This is a pre-order only. Pre-order will be open until March 20th. No more orders will be accepted after that point. No Special Orders. I am expecting about a 10 day turn around from the time that the pre-order closes.
