For every shirt we sell we give a book to a child.

Get this: Simply having books around during a child’s early years can be the key to learning to read and succeeding in school.  So when we discovered that there are many low-income neighborhoods in our country where there’s literally 1 book for every 300 kids, we had to do something and you can help.  For every soft, inspiring shirt you buy from Early Shirts, we’ll donate a book to a child. Help change lives and look great doing it by purchasing your Early Shirt today.

Reach for the Stars

Every child is a dreamer.  Reading only fuels their imaginations and opens a world of possibilities.  Our goal is to help children to learn to read early in life and instill them with that “stay-up-late-for-one-more-chapter” kind of excitement about reading. The studies and statistics surrounding childhood literacy and books being involved in a child’s life are shockingly clear: children who have access to books from a young age learn how to read quicker and perform better in school than those who don’t. We believe a new generation of book-lovers has the power to change the world for the better.  If you agree, help us achieve our goal by giving a book to a child in need for every shirt sold.

Reach for the Stars

Every child has dreams. No matter what children dream, their imagination is fueled by not only learning to read, but loving to read. The foundation for that love of books and the wealth of imagination they provide is made of the books kids are exposed to at an early age. The studies and statistics surrounding childhood literacy and books being involved in a child’s life are shockingly clear: children who have access to books from a young age learn how to read quicker and perform better in school than those who don’t.

Early Shirts hopes to level the playing field for all children. There are plenty of books to go around for everyone to develop a love of reading and using their imagination. That’s why Early Shirts founder Katie Griffith, an educator of young children in Wyoming, wanted to sell t-shirts to bring more books to more kids around the United States. She believes a new generation of book-lovers has the power to change the world for the better.
