T-Shirt Design is Out!

Great news: MadeInTruth Clothing, a small, Albany-based print screener and artist, has completed the front design for the t-shirt! Drum roll please...

The t-shirt design comes from the idea of UNICEF's slogan, which is "Believe in ZERO," the 0 representing the number of preventable children's deaths per year. The light blue is also the color of UNICEF's logo. We had the idea of the shoe prints from the Team UNICEF logo:
It was MadeInTruth's idea to have the "0 Preventable children's deaths per year" on the bottom corner facing up to the wearer as a sort of "cheat sheet."

T-shirts are available to those who donate $26.20 or more to my fundraiser (max 150 shirts). Businesses can have their logos placed on the back of the shirt for a donation of $200 or more.
Please make all donations here:
Special thank you to everyone who has given to my fundraiser! I am now 40% of the way to my goal and have surpassed the $1000 mark!!!

Donate to UNICEF and Market Your Business!

Are you a business owner? Want to market your business AND demonstrate that it is a philanthropic organization?         

Make a tax-deductible donation of only $200 to UNICEF!

 If you make a donation of $200 or more to my tax-deductible UNICEF/NYC Marathon fundraiser, you can have your business logo placed on approximately 150 t-shirts that will be given to individuals who donate $26.20 ($1 for each mile) or more to this cause. As a result, not only will you be making a tax-deductible donation, but your business' philanthropy efforts will be made public.

Donations can be made either via internet or through the mail. To donate via internet, please go to: To donate through the mail, please email me at
In-kind donations
Another great way of promoting your business would be to donate gift cards, services, branded materials (such as t-shirts, hats, etc.), and/or products. These items could then be raffled off to online contributors to the UNICEF campaign. This kind of contribution would allow for individuals to learn more about your business, encourage them to go to your store, and try out your products. Please note: these donations are not tax-deductible.

Thank you in advance for any and all assistance your organization can provide. I hope you will consider making a donation to my UNICEF campaign, which is not only an amazing cause but also a great way of marketing your business. With your help, the world will be closer to zero preventable children's deaths. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me via email or phone.
