A little while back, I posted about a cool initiative called the Joy T-Shirt project. If you purchase a shirt from this site, you can submit a photo of yourself to be used as a t-shirt design. I purchased a t-shirt a couple of months ago, submitted by photo and kind of forgot about it. Then, I received the following email:
Hey Vivian I just wanted to thank you so much for participating in the Joy T-shirt project it truly means a lot. I must apologize for the long delay as things have been a little hectic and I have fallen behind but am in the process of getting some help. In any event I just wanted to let you know that your profile pic is now posted on JoyTshirt.com. Once again thanks for your patience and please continue to spread the Joy! Wishing you well. Kindest Regards, Jeff Woodrow
That's right people! You too can own a t-shirt with my face on it. But the picture itself is not the point. When I decided to purchase a shirt, I went through every picture available. And it wasn't looks that made my decision. I decided that I wanted to choose a picture of a person who lived outside of North America and who listed interests that I found cool. I chose Sabry. He is a 39 year old from Algeria who lists his passions as "Hanging out with friends, sleeping in on weekends, smoking the hookah." Amen, brother.
So check out the site and if you feel the joy, order a shirt. And check out my profile.
