Indie Does Good: Yellow Bird Project

Yellow Bird Project is a Montreal-based initiative that asks indie artists to design a tshirt, with the proceeds of all sales going to a charity of each artist’s choosing.The project was started by two recent university grads in 2006, and they’ve now worked with a couple dozen bands, including Metric, The National, New Pornographers, Of Montreal and Ra Ra Riot. YBP helps younger people learn about various charitable ventures while also giving a hand to artists they support — and of course, raises money for organizations doing good work.

Their newest shirt is in collaboration with Beach House, with proceeds going to a charity that helps domestic assault victims at House Of Ruth. Awesome shirts, good cause.
