PRLog - Aug. 9, 2010 - SEATTLE -- Seattle, WA --- Designer Greek, a leading greek apparel store, adds The Tiger to its Letters For A Cause campaign which is bringing more meaning to the standard greek letter shirt and greek letter sweatshirt. Now customers have the opportunity to design fraternity apparel and sorority apparel, while supporting an important issue such as the fight to save Tigers, a species on the brink of extinction.
How it works – Designer Greek customers design their greek letter shirts and greek letter sweatshirts just like they always have, but now have the opportunity to select from a stylish Tiger fabric that is related to preserving and protecting wild Tigers. Upon purchase, Designer Greek donates 2.5% of the clothing price to Save Tigers Now, a campaign led by World Wildlife Fund. In return Designer Greek’s customers receive a piece of meaningful greek apparel. “Customers love the fact that their greek apparel is making a difference, as well as a statement. And, they leave Designer Greek more informed and aware of important global issues that deserve attention,” says Stefany Bernard, creator of Letters For A Cause.
Save Tigers Now is a global campaign by WWF, supported by Leonardo DiCaprio, that runs during the Chinese Year of the Tiger, 2010. Their goal is to build political and public support to double the number of wild tigers by 2022, the next Year of the Tiger. Wild tigers face a number of threats, including habitat loss and poaching and if Tigers continue to decline at the current rate a world without wild tigers could be a tragic reality in just a few short decades.
Ultimately, whether or not customers decide to choose the Letters For A Cause fabrics like the Tiger print, Designer Greek hopes that having the information available on their site will raise awareness and inspire individuals to get involved and really make a difference in this world.
Letters For A Cause currently features seven causes: The Amazon Rainforest, The Snow Leopard, Marine Debris, Breast Cancer Awareness, African Wildlife, Overfishing, and The Tiger. Any of the LFAC fabrics can be used to create beautiful looking greek letters shirts, greek sweatshirts, greek jackets, sorority bags, and more.
