Spearheaded by Chrissie Lam, the Pangaea T-shirt Project is an effort to "connect artists and activists, communities and causes," and profits benefit her efforts in Rwanda and other developing nations. Made from super-soft organic tees donated by Save Khaki and others, with some made in Uganda, the shirts are emblazoned with quirky graphics by artists like Bryan Collins, Steve Green, Chris McNally and Jon Theiss .
Artist and designer Lincoln Mayne volunteered to screenprint the designs himself. Lam's goals include "raising awareness and funds to help sponsor orphans, and filming genocide survivor testimonies." Her blog www.createforacause.com chronicles personal anecdotes of her volunteer work, as well as photos of her Rwandan experiences and the collection's tees.
