Threadless + World Vision = Ambrose

One of the great things about being back in Michigan was hanging out with one of my besties.  And one of the many great things she’s involved with is a fantastic organization called Ambrose.  Per their website: Ambrose is a collective of artists, designers, thinkers and makers dedicated to using our talent for good. We organize a free after school program for high school students focusing on creative problem solving, design and entrepreneurship. We make things to support the effort.

I was lucky enough to hang with the Ambrose crew for one of their workshops before we moved (that’s me on the right looking at my camera).  They do lots of other cool things too — like learning about graphic design, architecture, mixed media art, and screen-printing.  In fact it’s their 2nd-shift T-shirt makings that enable the program the continue to be free for any student who wants to participate.  And these are no knock-off Tees either.  One of the contributing designers is Drew Melton — the guy behind The Phraseology Project.  (*Funny note — as soon as I saw the shirt with Ambrose on it, I told the hubs that I thought I saw it on a typography website — The Phraseology Project.  Do I know my designers or what?!)

And if you like their beautifully designed Tee’s you can get one mailed to you every month (oh and you’re helping out with a pretty great cause too)!  It’s a great new project called The Maker’s Dozen.  (See aren’t they clever!)

Go here to learn how it works and then peruse their beautifully redesigned site and then wish that you had an after-school program like this when you were young!!!
