Norman Reedus: “Help Some Kids” Through Fan Shirt Relaunch — It Ends Soon!
The mega-popular actor supports various causes and occasionally sends links out to fans to get them involved. On Monday night, Norman tweeted this request to his 1.5 million followers: "Help some kids! At THEFELIXORGANIZATION.ORG relaunched the shirt campaign for just a few more days. http://represent.com/norman."
At that Represent link, you can see a limited edition T-shirt with this note from Norman: "It's official! I've designed my first fan shirt. Hope you like it. A portion of proceeds will go to The Felix Organization. It's only available for a short time so grab one quick." This is apparently the final relaunch, and there's a note that says "First campaign cycle shipping out Jan 17." There are different options available, from $19.99 to $26.99. They're all pretty cool-looking!
Where does a portion of the money go? Get more details on The Felix Organization over here. Here's the intro on the official site:
"The Felix Organization was founded in 2006 by Rock ’n Roll Hall of Famer, Darryl ‘DMC’ McDaniels and Emmy Award winning casting director, Sheila Jaffe. Both adopted and grateful to have been ‘taken home’, they were compelled to use their resources and experience to enrich the lives of children growing up in the foster care system. They had no idea the impact this partnership would have on the lives of so many disadvantaged children. Last summer, Felix sent our 1,000th child to Camp Felix, an overnight camp in Putnam Valley, NY designed to meet the unique needs of youth in foster care. Felix also sponsors Camp Felix West, a camp serving Los Angeles based foster youth and offers programs to help foster children in New York City reach their dreams throughout the year."
Seems like a worthy cause, and well worth supporting. One person who certainly feels that way is TWD alum Laurie Holden (Andrea), who re-tweeted Norman’s links and request to help kids, adding, “This is when I love you most. Xx.” Awww! Agreed.
