Collaborations for a Cause
This year we felt it was important to bring attention to local causes near and dear to the SXSW family. So, we created Collaborations for a Cause to do just that. This collection of official SXSW merchandise donates a portion of proceeds to select local charities. Our goal is to shed a light on Austin’s changing landscape and to give back to some communities that have given so much to us over the years.
Supporting Austin Restaurants
To bring attention to Austin’s struggling restaurants, we teamed up with local artist Lauren Dickens to design a t-shirt inspired by the local foodie scene that we all love and miss so much. We also created a booklet of recipes from a handful of restaurants so that those outside of Austin can still get a little taste of the city. A portion of proceeds from these two items will be donated to the Southern Smoke Foundation to help raise money and awareness for those in the industry that have been affected. If you are able to donate directly, please do so at southernsmoke.org/support and select Austin Relief Funds.
Supporting Austin’s Live Music Scene
Austin’s Live Music scene was certainly hit hard this past year, so we asked Texan artist Carlos Hernandez to dream up a t-shirt and poster design for SXSW 2021 merchandise. A portion of proceeds from these two items will be donated to the Red River Cultural District’s Banding Together to help raise money and awareness for those in the industry that have been affected. If you are able to donate directly, please do so at https://redriverculturaldistrict.org/donate.
Social Justice Reform
As Austin continues to grow and evolve, social justice is as important as ever. Shining a light on local justice reform, we were lucky to have local artist Rex Hamilton create a colorful and inspiring t-shirt design. A portion of proceeds from this collaboration will be donated to the ACLU of Texas. If you are able to donate directly, please do so at https://action.aclu.org/give/support-aclu-texas.
Texas Winter Storm Relief
It’s hard to imagine it was only a couple weeks ago that Texas was hit by one of the worst winter storms in history. Power and water outages affected so many throughout the state. While the weather is gone, there is still a lot to be done for those affected by this untimely natural disaster. With the purchase of our Love Y’all tee, we will make a donation to Austin Mutual Aid and its efforts to support those still in need. If you are able to donate directly, please do so at https://www.gofundme.com/f/kick-the-cold-austin-mutal-aid.
