Where are your products from?
All of our products are designed and printed or embroidered in the USA, and several of our t-shirts and hats are made in the USA, as well. However, some of the t-shirts and hats we make are made overseas in places like Central America.
When will I get my order?
All of our items are made to order when we receive payment. It can take up to 7 days to create your product before it ships out. If you need it faster, please select overnight or two-day shipping. You will receive a shipping confirmation email when your order is sent, and that will include a tracking number.
How come most of your products don't reference cancer or use a ribbon?
We believe that the best way to raise money is to sell products that people want to wear on an everyday basis, rather than just in October or when they're doing a walk or fundraiser. In addition, our friends who have been sick didn't want to advertise what they were going through. For those reasons, we have a couple of items that use ribbons, and will expand if we get a lot of requests, but our plan is mainly come up with cool designs.
Why don't you organize your products by cause?
We would rather create cool designs that anyone can wear, whether their cause of choice is finding a cure for an illness, battling an addiction or a social cause.
Is FACT goods a nonprofit organization?
No, FACT goods is a for-profit company, however we give a quarter or more of our profits to charities that research and support those fighting breast cancer, lymphoma, spinal cord injuries, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and other causes. Operating as a corporation allows us to better support the charities and causes we want to help fund.
By operating as a corporation we can spend our time and money generating incremental funds for the organizations we care about, rather than chasing after grants, fundraising and filing reports typically required of nonprofits.
Every month FACT goods makes a donation to a minimum of 5 charities. We review data on each foundation to validate how they spend their money to ensure that we only work with the best of the best organizations & foundations, in particular ones focused on research who spend very little of their money on marketing and salaries.
We donate a minimum of 25% of our proceeds each month. For now, we will divide donations amongst up to 5 charities per month, but hope to introduce a way for people to pick their own charities in the future. The charities we are currently supporting include:
