Gap’s Love Japan, Lift Japan T-Shirts

Swedish actress Malin Akerman (seen in the movie Watchman)  was sighted hiking in LA’s Griffin Park this week looking chic on the cheap in the new limited edition Gap Japan Relief T-Shirt.  I didn’t realize until I saw Malin in this shirt with the big heart, and the words Japan on the heart, that the Gap had produced three special edition Japan Relief T-Shirts.  Not only is the Tee cute, but Gap is donating all profits from the sale of the Tees to GlobalGiving’s Japan Earthquake & Tsunami Relief Fund.  There’s nothing better than a fashionable good cause!

When you buy the t-shirt online or in one of a dozen Gap flagship stores, the profits are donated to Global Giving’s Japan Earthquake and Tsunami Relief Fund.    Right now, the Gap is having a 30% off savings sale for Spring,  so if you’re interested in the shirt, use code GETGAP30 to save at checkout.   The Gap’s spring sale is a great time to save on kids stuff or some new spring wardrobe items.

    The first two designs shown from GAP are definitely up my alley. I tend to like them better than the Tory Burch tee.
