Support local journalism (a cause near and dear to our hearts) with a Mission Loc@l t-shirt, whose proceeds support fund reporting projects from the Mission-based news site.
Why would you want to put your $15 towards such a cause? Our two cents: Hyper-local reporting helps communities by making information that might not otherwise reach the public available to the people living and working in a certain area. It’s access to information that ultimately empowers people to better their communities, organize community-based efforts and promote positive change, all good things for residents and businesses.
And oh yeah, the shirts are pretty easy on the eyes, don’t you think? Printed with a neighborhood map in snazzy hues, each tee comes with a pin so you can mark your favorite spot in the Mish. Clearly, we’d need more than a handful of pins to accomplish that task (just thinking about it brings to mind some of our favorite Mission shops).
Locals can get theirs shipped for free by emailing staff (at) missionlocal (dot) org.
Want to see them in person? Mission Loc@l shirts are currently available at Artillery AG, Mission Bikes and Mission Skateboards. You can also peep them in person during Artillery AG’s Fight for that Cherry Art Reception & Mission Loc@l Launch Party on Saturday night. See the event details on the calendar.
