Fellow medical blogger Dr. Wes is shamelessly self promoting his love for making fun of sick people, cancer patients, mental health . . . um . . . stuff. And we’re happy to help him because he donates a portion of the proceeds to a variety of charities.
My wife just published a podcast for our Medtees website which makes these goofy medical t-shirts that support lots of charities. You can link to the podcast, produced by PRWeb, on this page and see the shirt that I brought her after her thyroidectomy (such a nice husband, huh?).
Or, if you haven’t checked out our ABC 7 News (Chicago) spot filmed earlier, you can view it here and listen to the stories from a few of our customers. (Yes, yours truly is in it, too).
Seriously, there are plenty of good causes that these shirts support, including the American Cancer Society, American Lung Association, Heart Rhythm Foundation, Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, the American Academy of Orthotics and Prosthetics Project Quantum Leap (for amputees), the Epilepsy Foundation, Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation, CHADD (Children and Adults with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder), American Organ Transplantation Association, Arthritis Foundation, etc., etc. We’re happy to say that over $1000 has been donated to these charities so far! JDRF has the highest donations, followed closely by the Heart Rhythm Foundation and American Cancer Society in a close race for second place.
If you work in the medical profession or you’ve been a patient and you have a well developed sense of humor, go check out MedTees.com and buy something nice for your loved ones this holiday season. Also, head on over to Dr. Wes’s blog for more info about how to submit your ideas and get a free shirt!
