Yellow Bird Project.

Sparks >> Who are you?

Yellow Bird Project >>We are a Montreal-based nonprofit called Yellow Bird Project. We work with an amazing range of indie rock musicians to create unique t-shirt designs that benefit an array of charities, each chosen by the musicians.

Sparks >> Huh. Tell us more?

YBP >> We don’t care if it’s shaken or stirred, our mission, and yours - should you to choose to accept, has three fundamental aims:

1) To raise money for charities directly through the barter and trade of our fab tee-shirts. Unfortunately we no longer accept goats; money proved to be an easier currency to store.

2) To raise awareness for charity organizations and their aims through artists’ endorsement. YBP is a very different venue for these charities. It brings in a lot of younger people and encourages philanthropy from treble and bass clefts. It is definitely more work to have multiple charities, rather than one fund, but we think it allows the artists to pick something that is truly important to them.

3) To raise the profile of artists we like. We by no means want to or presume to have the ability to make artists into marketed machines and different versions of Ms. Spears, but we want to help raise their profiles and get them the attention that they deserve. We hope YBP can in some way help artists and music to prosper, and in turn help those less fortunate.

Sparks >> Wow. We're inspired. Your creativity is contagious and we will follow you! By the way, good sense of humor ;)
