Ballet teams up with T-shirt biz

By From page B4 | March 21, 2012

El Dorado Hills’ Pamela Hayes Classical Ballet has joined 17 nonprofits, mostly local, that are raising awareness and funds through high-end custom T-shirts created and sold by Fibers.com, a custom t-shirt company based in Sacramento. Fibers.com creates the designs and hosts online stores for each nonprofit, with 25 percent of proceeds donated to the nonprofit.

“When T-shirts look good, people notice. We thought this would be a creative way for people to learn about the amazing work nonprofits are doing in our community while also raising funds for these groups that are working so hard,” said Melody Stone, Fibers.com marketing director. “It’s a great opportunity for people to share the causes they care most about.”

Other local participating nonprofits include the California Food Literacy Center, Sacramento Area Bicycle Advocates, Artober, UCP of Sacramento and Northern California, Women’s Empowerment, Sactomofo, Koinonia Homes for Teens, Breathe California of Sacramento-Emigrant Trails and the Heart Gallery. Others include Donors Choose, Clean Water Network, Friends of the River, Urban Aspirations and Humanitarian Foundation.

“We love that we can create our own designs and upload them using Fibers’ tools,” said Lisa Watts, Pamela Hayes Classical Ballet volunteer. “We save money by only printing them on demand, and we guarantee that our customers can choose a product, color, design and style that they like. We are grateful for Fibers’ generosity as we partner to creatively spread the word about classical ballet in our region.”
