For their 8th annual ZooWalk for Autism in East Valley Arizona, the fundraisers came up with a great idea to garner support. They held a contest asking participants to design the promotional t-shirt for their October 6 walk.

BLT Shirt Printers thinks this is a great idea for charity groups struggling to come up with fun graphic designs year after year.

Also, instead of staring morosely at a blank piece of paper, you’ll get the chance to peruse the diverse work of others.
