UPDATE: [9.15.09] Selective designs are SOLD OUT.
This isn't happiness to see Me, is it. =D Right. Some of you may not know, but there is a big market for T-shirts out there. So to bring you a diversity in styles, Gap introduced original designs from artists all over, for its fall (PRODUCT) RED Artist Edition T-Shirt collection. Mine (& among other featured artists), is out the month of August (that's to our birthdays, dawg!) =)
To spotlight the new collection, Gap is opening the doors to a pop-up art gallery featuring works of art by the artists in its rotating concept venue in New York. The collection is also available at Gap stores nationwide, with select styles available at gap.com and the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York City. Now through August 30, the Whitney Museum Store will carry five women's and five men's styles. In partnership with (PRODUCT) RED, 50 percent of profits from the sale of Gap (PRODUCT) RED Artist Edition T-Shirts will benefit the Global Fund, to help eliminate AIDS in Africa.
So if you happen to be "In the Neighborhood", or simply want to swim the Atlantic Ocean, be sure to drop by the store or gallery & pick up a T! `=)

About (RED)™ and (PRODUCT)RED™
(RED)’s primary objective is to engage the private sector in raising awareness and funds for the Global Fund, to help eliminate AIDS in Africa.

Current partners are: American Express (U.K. only), Apple, Converse, Gap, Emporio Armani, Hallmark, Dell, Windows and Starbucks. Since its launch in the Spring of 2006, more than $130 million has been generated by (RED) for the Global Fund. (RED) money is at work in Swaziland, Rwanda, Ghana and Lesotho.

About The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria
