Citrus for Change - Shirts and Stickers

On Citrus Circuits, we recognize that discrimination is a prevailing issue today and we condemn all forms of it. To support the LGBTQ+ community and the Black Lives Matter movement, we have designed limited edition apparel and stickers available on Teespring. 100% of the proceeds from all of these products will be donated to the Sacramento LGBT Community Center and the Sacramento chapter of the NAACP. Please consider sharing and supporting this effort as we look towards a better world by living out the Citrus Circuits motto: Educate. Empower. Excel. #blacklivesmatter #pridemonth #thisiscitrus

I already have too many robotics shirts, but I’ll buy some for other people. First three people to PM me a size, style, and shipping address gets it.

Thanks for doing this 1678.

Matt, thanks so much for being awesome and buying some merch for others in the FIRST community! Classy move.

The students on 1678 really did the work, designing the shirts, setting up the teespring shop, social media posts, etc. I just post to Chief (an apt analog to what I do on the team writ large :sweat_smile: )

It’s a privilege to work with so many young adults that want to bring about real change in the world! To everyone who has supported this effort already, thank you!

Best,

Some FIRST people get some sweet shirts, a good cause gets a donation, and I don’t have to contribute to the monster that is my t-shirt drawer. Win-win-win.

Sometimes it’s hard to remember that teams are more than just their most prominent CD faces :joy:. Updated my post accordingly.

We received a number of requests for Youth and Toddler sizes, so we’ve added those options for both the Pride and BLM designs in our storefront:

I just bought one of the shirts and noticed something indicating that they are only available for another two days. Can you confirm this?

Exciting update: The “Citrus for Change” fundraising initiative has raised over $1,000 so far! :tada: :rainbow_flag: :tada: :black_heart: :tada:

We are so grateful and encouraged by the strong support from this community for issues we care about. If you haven’t yet, consider purchasing some shirts/stickers to support the Sacramento LGBT Community Center and the Sacramento chapter of the NAACP. Thanks everyone who has participated already!

We are looking into why the Teespring shop is saying this. Our intention is to keep the limited edition merchandise available for longer than a few more days. In any case, we’d encourage anyone still interested to pick up some merch soon!

Best,

-Mike
