Community Merchandise Design Contest



Calling all artists! We had such success with our first Dear Jack t-shirt fundraiser, that we want to do it again! Only this time, we want to spread the LOVE and print merchandise designed by a member of our Dear Jack community!

The top three designs chosen by the DJF panel will be voted on by our community, and the winning design will be made into a tee and sold to benefit the Dear Jack Foundation.

100% of the proceeds of any t-shirt sales will go directly to Dear Jack quality of life programs for AYA cancer patients and survivors.
