Today, our sale of T-shirts is equal to more than 80% of our foundation budget and it would have been impossible without Challenge International’s help which offered 200 white printed T-shirts (as partnership). A big thank you as well to E-mag for going along our project and providing financial help for the creation of our 150 other black T-shirts.
Once the T-shirts delivered, we had to sale them. And to be honest, it is not always easy to find buyers for 200 T-shirts. So thanks a lot to our families and friends for spreading the word and being such amazing salespeople! In particularly, thanks Vincent and Taiyo because they sold more than ¼ of our stock within 1 hour. A big thank to Monique (my mother-in-law!) and Chantal (my mum!) for finding a lot of buyers. Thanks so much to Aurélie, Fabien, Hélène, Aurélien, Marie, François, Guillaume, Julie and Carole. Last but not least, thank you to all the 200 buyers who wear the T-shirts « en piste pour le monde » in their daily life.
