Buy His Shirt for a Good Cause: His Leg

I read about this fellow in the Willamette Week, a weekly newspaper in Portland, Oregon. In essence, Tarver Hannant had his leg amputated after multiple (more than 40!) painful surgeries and many years of agony. Now, he finds out that:

"Hannant, an account executive for a lending company, soon discovered how painful the financial burden of a prosthetic replacement can be. His insurance company, HealthNet, would contribute only $5,000 annually toward what he expects to cost $30,000 to $40,000 this year for his leg and prescriptions, plus future annual check-ups."

So he decided to raise some money by selling t-shirts. I urge you to check out his website and buy a t-shirt. This is a good cause. Technically, you donate $25 to his cause, via PayPal, and he gifts you with a t-shirt. (There must be a legal reason for that.) Be sure to read all the instructions for payment because they can be a little confusing.
