The t-shirts look like a knock-off with the “&” symbol different from the symbol on the ‘thrive’ logo I’ve seen on the net...but there it is....commerce in action

Call me a cynic, but I have doubts that the proceeds will be donated to anything but this person’s wallet.

??? What percentage goes to the victims??? Note he said a portion goes. Its nothing more than someone taking advantage of an easy sale that is 100% emotion driven.

$22.90? Wow, that’s a lot. A portion is going for the cause? Who’s the other portion going to?

It is correct on the shirt in the image.

I wonder if he has permission to print and sell these.

Some time ago “Together We Thrive” was the slogan of a Western Massachusetts leftist movement centered at Amherst.

Don’t we all need permission to do anything, anywhere, with anyone?

I thought that’s the guiding principle we’re expected to live by.

Look at some of the other items this seller has - pretty much has that - I don't understand why this seller would do this except for 'fair game' easy gain.

I must be cynical or prescient or both. I went to ebay this morning and typed in Together We Thrive Tshirt thinking they must be at least one idiot selling his souvenier shirt from the rally to make a buck. There was nothing that came up. Nobody can pimp like a lib

“Together We Thieve” is a more appropriate Rat slogan.

Yep, looks to be a knock off. He'll probably make a tiny donation to the cause to remain legal, but he isn't part of the campaign.

Wait to see who files copyright infringement - then you’ll know who paid for the original shirts.

“More than ten available”

“Be sure to note: additional charges for xxl or xxxl”

Of course it’s a knockoff...but can you blame an entrepreneur for taking lefties’ money?

Actually, I don’t have that problem. I am fastidious about it. Regardless, it was a useful stereotype remark.

Uh oh, the eBay seller is infringing on their trademark even though his is more poorly executed (type faces don’t line up correctly).

Actually, I think that *OBAMA* is infringing on their trademark. Always go after the guy with the deepest pockets!

That would be perfect (you know, without trademark infringements and all:)

A t-shirt with “Together We Thrive” with an ultrasound image - perfect for pro-life organizations!

I have a friend with that problem.Does he not know how to wipe himself? What about a shower? He said that when a man farts,it leaves a “residue”.What? Perhaps a change in diet is in order.....

Afraid this is getting a little too scatological for my taste. Suffice it to say hairy posterior coupled with not washing your own clothes
(or, apparently, oneself) can be big contributors.

Looked correct to me...It’s also a fake, as pointed out by another poster. The ampersand is different than the one on the abomination shirts.

Definitely a fake. And the shirts are coming out of Florida. Now up to $26. And, yes, I am amazed no one is selling their original from the pep rally....er...memorial.
