We're very excited about our expansion into Pittsburgh! We can't wait to help families in need in Pittsburgh through some awesome Pittsburgh sports team related designs, and we want to have the biggest impact we can once we do launch. And believe me, the first few designs I've seen are definitely awesome!
It's with the impact we make in mind that we've decided to change the date of the launch. Well, maybe. It may even stay August 3rd... more on that in a second.
We want to make sure that, when we launch, enough people know about 26 Shirts Pittsburgh. While the designs I've seen are awesome, it's the families that we help that are the most awesome, and, at the end of the day, 26 Shirts is about them not t-shirts. It's just through t-shirts that we help. While I'm sure more and more people will learn about the shirts each week, we just want to make sure the initial shirts are seen by enough people right from the get-go.
We changed the date on the Season Ticket giveaway contest to be September 10th at 8:30pm but really we could launch before that. The launch date is based on when we pass 1000 subscribers to the Pittsburgh email newsletter list. We're at 205 as of the writing of this post. Once we pass 1000 then the next Monday we will launch the first shirt.
How can you help? I'm glad you asked! It's easy and you'll be rewarded for helping. Just go to the Season Ticket giveaway page and "Refer friends for extra entries". You get 3 extra entries for everyone you refer to the contest. AND we're giving away two more free shirts just based on the referrals - one for the person with the most referrals and another random draw from those that referred at least 1 person.
So get your link from the contest page and share it on Facebook, tweet about it, email your friends. Start here: 26 Shirts Pittsburgh
