Raising the Roof One Tee at a Time With Teespring #Crowdfunding

raising the roof shirts

I was asked to review Teespring and I thought the best way to do that was to launch a campaign of my own. As many of you know, our home is a sort of our consellation prize bought with the little money we received from renter’s insurance when we had our house fire. We have slowly been making improvements when we can but our porch roof can’t wait much longer! After investing $9,000 in replacement windows and having the contractor dissappear and eventually file bankruptcy we’ve lost the opportunity to save on heating costs and the other advantages of those replacement windows. Those savings were our repair fund! 

I’m not asking for a handout here, just offering you a cute t-shirt that I’ve designed and in return, we’ll use every penny of the profits for our front porch. What’s the catch? If we don’t meet our goal, the shirts don’t print and neither of us is out a dime! The tshirts are available in sizes small through 3xl. Each shirt costs $19.50 and you can reserve yours here! Let’s see what we can do! Once the campaign closes I will write an additional post with my review of Teespring and an update on how we did as well as show you what’s happening with our new porch roof if we meet our goal!

Don’t forget to SHARE this post wherever you can!!
