Updated: Oct 21, 2022

Buffalo's 26 Shirts sells limited edition 'Buffalo Rhapsody' shirt, a spin on musical group Queen's Tour of 1975 tee. For every shirt sold, a portion of proceeds will go to The Giving Girls. After a shirt's respective two week run is over, the design is retired and never sold again. This sale started on August 24th at midnight and goes through September 6th 2020.

The Need:

At only 37 years young, Rachel Slowey was diagnosed with Stage III HER2+ breast cancer which also spread to her lymph nodes.  She is determined to spread positivity & help build awareness and support others who have to fight this terrible disease.  Slowey is in the beginning stages of creating ‘The Giving Girls’ Charity.  Her goal is to shed light on her experience to help others battling and coping with cancer.  With Slowey’s do good attitude, she is dedicated to give back to the community and make sure people are also educated.  When asked what helps get her by the hard days, she replied music.  “There’s something about the beats, lyrics, art of the notes that can help you heal no matter what mood you are in.” Donations from this shirt campaign, Buffalo Rhapsody, will help Rachel, help others.  Gratitude is the heart's response to life's infinite blessings.  As we live in awareness and appreciation, we experience and express the richness of life.

Please visit and follow @rsslowey and @thegivinggirls813 to keep up with her story.  #SloweyStrong

About 26 Shirts:

"At 26 Shirts, we sell different limited edition sports-themed t-shirts every two weeks. After a shirt's respective two week run is over, the design is retired and never sold again. We are currently operating in Buffalo, Chicago, and Pittsburgh. For every shirt sold, a donation is made to a specified family in need or charitable organization. Our primary focus is needs associated with health/medical concerns, or unexpected family emergencies. Family with needs like... A young daughter fighting leukemia. Another daughter who has had an eye removed because of a rare pediatric cancer. A family whose son was hit by a car, and now they have to commute between Buffalo (where they live/work) and Pittsburgh (where he’s being treated). A foundation that works to serve and help people afflicted by an ultimately lethal, yet relatively unknown condition. This is a 100% crowd-sourced campaign. We need YOU, the artistic fan, to contribute your talent and designs for consideration. We need YOU, the creative fan, to contribute ideas and concepts for artists to bring to life. We need YOU, the passionate fan, to BUY THE SHIRTS! Our goal is to provide customers with the highest quality, softest fabric shirts. So not only will they be designs you love, they'll be on shirts you love wearing. If you are interested in participating and have a design (or designs) that you would like to submit, please get in touch with us. We pay artists $1 from every shirt sold as compensation for their time and effort but the biggest "get" you as an artist will receive is the warm fuzzy feeling of knowing that that the time spent in Adobe Illustrator (or whatever method) was used to help out someone(s) less fortunate!"
