Snowzilla T-shirts are here!

What better way to remember the blizzard that dropped two to three feet of snow on the Washington, D.C., region than with this amazing, lizard-y design.

The best part about this project is that all profits will go to the Washington, D.C., charity Gifts for the Homeless, which will use every penny to buy warm clothing and blankets for more than 60 area shelters, soup kitchens, transitional housing programs and other homeless service providers. Gifts for the Homeless is run entirely by volunteers, has no paid staff and uses 100 percent of every public donation to provide clothing and blankets to the homeless.

The most economical option is the basic white short-sleeve T-shirt for $17.75. But in addition to T-shirts (men’s and women’s), we have tote bags, hooded sweatshirts and kids’ shirts.

The T-shirt was designed by Eric Shansby, who illustrates Gene Weingarten’s Below the Beltway column in The Washington Post magazine. Shansby also illustrated Weingarten’s children’s book “Me & Dog” and the Capital Weather Gang’s 2010 Snowmageddon T-shirt.
