T-Shirtmonster.ca Helps 'Walk Now for Autism' Fundraise With Personalized T-Shirts

OAKVILLE, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - July 16, 2009) - T-Shirtmonster.ca, an e-commerce custom t-shirt printer that hosts an online platform for sellers and buyers, has launched a Gallery for Walk Now for Autism, a fundraising and awareness event for autism organized by Autism Speaks Canada.

The Walk Now for Autism Gallery enables walking teams to create personalized t-shirts online, using T-Shirtmonster's fun and easy to use Design Lab.

"The Design Lab lets team members upload a photograph and add text such as 'I'm walking for Christopher', says Ben Duncan, co-founder, T-Shirtmonster. "The Walk for Autism logo can be added with the click of a button to give the shirt an authentic look. Once the user is happy with their design, they can choose to have it printed on over 150 different

styles and colours of customizable t-shirts, including organic t-shirts, baby clothing, American Apparel and hooded sweatshirts."

Walk Now for Autism Speaks events are held this year in Toronto, Edmonton and Vancouver. T-Shirtmonster is pleased to partner by donating 40% of the t-shirt sales to Autism Speaks Canada, which will be attributed directly to Walk Team's fund raising totals.

T-Shirtmonster's proprietary web platform empowers individuals, businesses and non-profit organizations to generate substantial income from T-Shirt sales by opening a free Gallery to upload and sell their designs. All profits from the sale of the T-Shirt go directly to the owner of the Gallery.
