I'm currently feelin: loved loved
I'm currently hearin: Warren Zevon // Carmelita

So, who here remembers the ONE shirts that people on this community got together and produced last year? The ones with Africa on them. Apparently U2mart.com is selling shirts just like it... for $27. They say they put a portion of the proceeds to the African Well Fund Charity...

Pretty sure some people from this community never actually received said shirts, actually.

That's unfortunate. I got mine and I love it.

I never did. I still email about it every few weeks... sniff. That's a lot of money for me just down the drain.

it directs back to the community (prolly forgot to close a tag or include the 'http' in the [a href] tag). Just so you know to fix it. :)

Unfortunately, while I got my two shirts quickly, there are some folks who never did get theirs.

I don't say this to call Ashley out, but the excuses she gave when some people asked about what was causing delays for them were fairly poor - when she said anything at all. The main excuse was that it was the fault of the people doing the printing/shipping. I don't know if anything was said in private to the people who didn't get theirs, but I hope refunds were at least offered/given.

Ultimately, it was a very large undertaking that wasn't that easy to stay on top of, but people aren't going to care where the problems came from - they're going to want their shirts or their money back and final responsibility lies with the person who organized it all.

Are there still a lot of people who didn't get their shirts? I was going to order one but then my gut feeling told me not to at the last minute. I'm kind of glad I didn't order one now.
