Why Do We Provide Official Event T-Shirts?
This global event is and will always be completely free for all of humanity to experience. We believe that if you want to inspire a world peace movement you need to enable everyone to be a part of it. That being said, it does cost months of time and thousands of dollars to coordinate such a large and inspiring event so we had to find another way to make it work.
HONOURING THE ORGANISERS
It takes 3 months of planning and preparation with a team of 15 international volunteers and over 400 city hosts to bring this event to you. These people work for love, not for money. When you buy a T-shirt, you honour your host and the global organisers for the time and energy that it takes to coordinate.
COVERING THE COST OF INFRASTRUCTURE
Thousands of dollars have been invested into a dynamic mapping of events so you can easily find your nearest event, “How to Videos” have been filmed and recorded professionally to educate and inspire, template guides have been built and translated in over 8 languages, website hosting, dedicated email and server costs are paid for. This is not including the basic food, shelter and necessities required for all volunteers to continue working on this.
WE SAY NO TO CORPORATE SPONSORSHIP
Can you imagine this event with a giant coca-cola logo slapped on top? We have refused corporate sponsorship a number of times to ensure that the purity, heart and soul is maintained throughout the event. We are very proud of this event being powered by humanity working together to make it possible. You are welcome to look at our other humanitarian events here.
SO WHY THE T-SHIRTS?
These T-shirts are a powerful way to support the continuation of international acts of love and human connection to grow world-wide. Every time you buy a piece, you say YES to more events that bring us together as one. The choice is always yours and the shirts are a great way to share the importance of eye contact everywhere you go.
