Support @U2: T-Shirt Fundraiser Underway



And now for my least favorite thing to do as @U2's founder: Ask our readers for financial help.

It's been almost six years since we last put out a call for contributions, and you helped us raise the money we needed in 2009 for a website redesign and upgrade. The website hasn't changed in those six years, which is an incredibly long time, but we need to make some major improvements this year ... and since we only have a couple hundred dollars on hand, we're turning again to our loyal readers.

But this time, we're doing something new: t-shirts!

We've opened a little shop on Teespring and currently have eight (8) t-shirt options for you to choose from, with slogans and sayings on the front like "We'll shine like stars in the summer night" and "Talk like this. Act like that. Dream out loud." On the back, we've put our website URL in very small print. There are mens, womens and kids options available, and some also have a long-sleeve version, too. Since it's our 20th anniversary year, we've priced each shirt option at about $20, which gives us a profit of about $6 per shirt. Use the link below to check out the shirts and we'd love for you to order as many shirts as you want! It's a great way to contribute to @U2 and get something tangible in return (that you can wear proudly to all of your Innocence+Experience shows this year).

Notice, by the way, that the shirt sales are only open for the next 1-2 weeks. If there's enough interest after the deadline, we can re-open sales on any individual shirt.

If you don't want a t-shirt, but still want to show support for what we do, you can still make a direct donation via Paypal in any amount -- we're always grateful for those contributions. Use the link below to learn more about direct contributions.

If you can't contribute at this time, or just don't care to contribute at all -- that's fine and we totally understand. It won't change our commitment to bringing you accurate and trustworthy news and features, just like we've been doing for 20 years.

For those who do contribute by buying t-shirts or making a direct contribution, I offer a sincere and heartfelt thank you from all of us at @U2.
