My name is Cole Thomas and and I need you! I am a social justice artist-activist whose organization, AGenda Benda Justice, Inc. helps to connect people with common community goals. Often, this requires the creation of theme-building symbols or images, which I design and share. FROM our WEBSITE: "AGenda Benda Justice, Inc. while incorporated as a not-for-profit, is not yet tax exempt qualified, as this part of the process is arduous and pricey. This summer, we must raise the $1,500 to work with an accountant/bookkeeper and attorney to finish this so that we can accept gifts without tax penalties. Cole designed the International LGBTQ Healthcare Awareness Ribbon in 2010 to stress the urgency of pursuing full-body wellness in this community, not only sexual health like HIV prevention. Like her other designs it began as a physical piece (ceramic) and morphed into a powerful symbol. From her own photographs, Cole designed an image for a mentorship movement called D.R.I.V.E.R.S. (for visionaries, cause/movement builders and their mentorees); an image from a collage to raise awareness of the avenues to eradicate human trafficking; a stunning logo for the college club for which she is advisor; and two sets of postcards for religious institutions to address anti-discrimination protocols, one using a shocking image of a cracked rearview mirror (an image featured in a Buckhead Library Show by the Atlanta Artist Association) and one showing a sword and labrys Cole photographed in her living room in 2008. The latter is also prominent on bumper stickers to fight sexual harassment and sexual assault and on "cause" greetings cards. Florals are a favorite design of Cole's as are her freeze action images, such as the one of a basketball about to fall into the goal."

I need to raise at total of $1,500 for tax accountant and lawyer fees, so I would like to do it this way, your help. I plan to order just over 100 tee shirts with the cost before shipping being $1,186.45. Once they arrive, I will share some with other organizations for (their) fundraising and I can offer the shirts for sale through AGenda Benda Justice, Inc. to fund the remaining $1,500 needed for AGenda Benda Justice, Inc.'s much-needed IRS application.
