Raise your hand if you have a big sister. I don't have enough hands, because I'm blessed with 3 big sisters. Yes you can count your best friend who you feel is like a big sister. But maybe you don't have a big sister and always wished you had one. Someone to always confide in, bounce things off of and look up to. Someone who will support but not criticize you, no matter how silly you feel your ideas might be.

Some young girls are less fortunate, their parents (or parent), are stretched to the limit. Not enough time or resources to provide all of this. Here's your opportunity to help a little sister get her big sister. During the month of May Plum collects donations by asking our customers to contribute $2 to help match 2 little Sisters with their big sisters. From now until June 1, 2014, Plum will be matching donations up to $25, and, you get a chance to win a $350 Plum Gift Certificate! 

These big sisters play such an important role in the lives of these growing young girls. By providing much needed support and encouragement  which in turn can boost a young girls growing self esteem. With healthy self esteem, we know so much can be accomplished.

When is a t-shirt not a just a t-shirt? When it has another purpose. No, I don't mean wiping up counter stains or your children's faces. Don't you love dual purpose? I do. I love anything that has more than one use. Not only lovely, wearable works of art, with these t shirts, Plum will be donationg $ 2.00 from the sale of each to The Nature Conservancy of Canada.  http://www.natureconservancy.ca.  An organization who's driving force is to preserve our natural resources, and has done so for over 50 years.  Artwork on these gorgeous, exclusive to Plum t shirts are the work of  local artist Simone Des Roches Phd, biologist and self professed naturalist.

Graphic T's are often fun or interesting but printed on rather unflattering, manly shape bodies. Plum has produced these gorgeous t shirts, however, in 8, bright, fun, summer colors in a very complimentary A-line shape. Which can easily flow into your existing wardrobe, or top up a pair of shorts or capri's. Or for more of a boho look, a long flowy skirt. Made of cotton with just a hint of spandex, expands the wearability factor.

These captivating, beautiful and almost mystical images, depict 4 either extinct, extirpated or threatened Canadian species. Free hand drawings so detailed, one can almost see the motion of the pigeon (for instance). Great conversation starters!

Beautiful and meaningful; more than one would normally expect from the average t shirt. Feeling good about your clothing choices, could not be much easier.

For more details on these captivating drawings, click the thumbnail below.

The T's can be bought in Plum stores, or on our web store.
