I Am Worth More (http://www.IAmWorthMore.org) is a registered 501c3 nonprofit organization. Its mission is to counter the negative effects society and the entertainment industry has on today's youth. The organization works to: (1) connect youth to resources [programs, services, workshops conducted by existing organizations across the country focused on helping youth] to help build essential assets [as outlined by The Search Institute], (2) build self-esteem and worth, and (3) increase their positive entertainment in-take.
Since the organization is fairly new, traditional sources of funding have been challenging to acquire. As a result, we have been working to launch a merchandise program and campaign called Rock My Good (http://www.RockMyGood.com) to raise money. Funds will not only help sustain the merchandise/campaign but also provide the opportunity to develop the program piece to do the outreach we need. Thanks to several designers within the 99designs community we have a strong starting line up of t-shirts and design work for the soft launch (fall/winter 2012).
I Am Worth More is now looking for a love edition t-shirt design (for Valentine's Day 2013) to highlight the GOOD qualities and characteristics needed to have a healthy relationship, love for others and/or love for self. We are looking to BOOST self-esteem around beauty, love... feeling beautiful inside and out and stress the healthy and positive characteristics and feelings about love. They need to know that they are wonderfully made and deserving of love, reflect love and should give love.
Primary audience are teens and young adults (both male and female)... So the design must be very "hip," "cool," "positive," "fresh," "stylish" "clean"- projects confidence and style.
ITEM(S) TO INCORPORATE ON THE T-SHIRT:
The Rock My Good logo should be incorporated secondarily as the "tag" on the shirt but NOT the focal point.
