Proving once again that Canada is one of the world’s primary producers of lovely things (case in point: Ryan Gosling, Justin Bieber, maple syrup), the Yellow Bird Project is back with a new installment of indie music + t-shirt cuteness + doing good.

Introducing the Yann Tierson landscape T, a shirt designed to a) look cool and b) support Medicin Sans Frontiers (aka: Doctors Without Borders). Not familiar with Yann’s work scoring movies like “Amelie”? Never fear — Yellow Bird has a whole lineup of indie musicians you’re bound to not only recognize, but lurve, and each is paired with a nonprofit doing great things that’ll benefit from shirt sale proceeds. Take, for example:

Rilo Kiley, benefiting Elliott Smith Memorial Fund

Bon Iver, benefiting Interval House

Tegan and Sara, benefiting FIERCE

… aaaaaand, all of these guys.

The online store has some other fun goodies (we’re fans of the Indie Rock Coloring Book, just $10) and descriptions of every musician and org you’re supporting. Go get your indie on. Yellow Bird is waiting for ya!
