Every one of our pink breast cancer fundraising tshirts is special.
Not only does the purchase of one of our t-shirts help to provide necessary services and care for people struggling to make ends meet as they receive treatment for breast cancer, but what makes Be Uplifted Inc’s fundraising shirts even more special is their manufacturing process.
Our soft polyester/cotton blend t-shirts have a round neck and feature the Be Uplifted Inc logo. They are produced with care by the women at the Brisbane Womens Correctional Centre.
So how did this unlikely charitable collaboration come about?
Michael from the Brisbane Womens Correctional Centre contacted Be Uplifted Inc and wanted to donate the pink fabric, an order originally intended by the Newman Government to be used for prison attire for the bikies. The kind donation was given to Be Uplifted Inc with the thought of making t-shirts.
The breast cancer awareness t-shirts were then manufactured using the Industry program at Brisbane Women’s Correctional Centre.
