Irregular Times Domestic Donation: Center on Budget and Policy Priorities

Every time someone takes home one of our liberal sweat-free made in the USA shirts, we set aside a dollar to donate to a good political cause within the United States. This month, our donation goes to the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities.

Conservative columnists and politicians are spending a lot of time lately [...]

Irregular Times International Donation: Kasese Humanist Primary School in Uganda

Every time someone buys one of Irregular Times’ sweatshop-free shirts, we set aside a dollar to send overseas to help communities in other countries with problems they may face. One of the many problems Uganda faces is education. Uganda ranks 127th in the world in per-capita public spending on education, and only 66.8% of the [...]

International Donation: Foundation Beyond Belief Horn of Africa Crisis Fund

To help pay for the costs of the Irregular Times website, we sell a few liberal t-shirts through the Ohio printer Skreened. The shirts we print on are made in the USA because clothing factories in the U.S. are regularly inspected and meet some basic ethical standards for the compensation and safety of workers. This [...]

Irregular Times Donation: the Electronic Frontier Foundation

This morning, I started to research Barack Obama’s nominees to watchdog civil liberties through the Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board, and what I found about nominee Rachel Brand wasn’t pretty. As one of the members of the Bush administration in the Justice Department specializing in legal policy regarding the “War on Terror,” Brand repeatedly [...]

Kiva Frowns but we Smile when Microloans Default

For every sweatshop-free t-shirt we sell at Skreened, we set aside a dollar to donate to some form of economic development for the poor people living overseas. Initially, we participated in microloans under the Kiva system, thinking that the non-profit’s loans must be generously giving people a hand up to a better life. But then [...]

National Map of Donors to Restore Our Future, the Mitt Romney Super PAC

Anxious to know who’s been contributing a quarter million, a half million, an even million or more to Restore Our Future, the Super PAC sweeping up unlimited donations to the Mitt Romney campaign?

For raw data, visit this web page at the Federal Election Commission. The scale of big money flowing from a small number [...]

Irregular Times Donations, April 2012: Planned Parenthood and Village Enterprise

We the writers for Irregular Times sell political shirts for three reasons:

1. To pay for the hosting and logistical costs associated with keeping Irregular Times up and running. 2. To help spread messages that we believe in. 3. To help change the world just a little bit.

#3 may seem odd to you; how [...]

Donation: Village Enterprise Fund

Every time the writers for Irregular Times sell a sweatshop-free made in the USA t-shirt, we chip in a dollar toward economic development in an impoverished nation. That’s the way we slice the Gordian knot of supporting ethical production while also sending dollars to people in other countries who need them.

It’s time to make [...]

Americans Elect Says Donating $$ “Buys You No Special Influence Whatsoever”. What do the Facts Say?

Americans Elect made a very strong claim today in an official news release:

“Giving to Americans Elect buys you no special influence whatsoever, and all donors acknowledge that fact when they contribute.”

Strong claims require strong evidence. But Americans Elect has provided you NO evidence to back up their claim.

What strong evidence would look [...]

Irregular Times Political Donation: Center on Budget and Policy Priorities

As Irregular Times writers, we’ve pledged to donate a dollar to international relief for every shirt we sell, but we also donate another dollar to good political causes within American borders. Our donation this month isn’t headed to some Democratic politician. For years the Democrats convinced us to vote them into office on the premise [...]

Irregular Times Donation: Humanist Crisis Response Horn of Africa Project

We sell American-made political shirts to keep Irregular Times going because shirts made in other countries are notorious for noxious sweatshop labor conditions, not because we’re xenophobes. We believe strongly that money should flow to parts of the world where people are living in desperate poverty, and so for every shirt we sell we pledge [...]
