When designer Jeff Sheldon started Ugmonk, a small T-shirt line, in 2008, he had no idea that in just two years it would become his full-time gig. Now Sheldon is using his business to give back to the world. Buy any T-shirt or other product from Ugmonk between now and the end of the year and the company will donate a meal to an orphan in need through Rice Bowls. And these aren’t just any old T-shirts. I’m salivating over these typographic designs: “It’s the little things,” “Don’t just stand there” and that super sexy ampersand sweatshirt.
