Friends In Deed is fortunate to have a core of over 100 dedicated volunteers who generously give their time and talents each week – working an astounding 1,500 hours every month.
Friends In Deed is a crisis center that provides emotional and spiritual support for anyone diagnosed with HIV/AIDS, cancer and other life-threatening physical illnesses and all services are free of charge. FID’s staff and volunteers make such an vital impact on the lives of people in crisis that Atlas Merchandise was proud to help out with a donation of tees for their group. If you want to donate money, time or both to this very worthy organization, please check out their website: http://www.friendsindeed.org/donate/.
Friends In Deed is an Accredited Charity of the BBB and a proud participant in the Charity Seal Program, which indicates that their organization has met the 20 Standards for Charity Accountability.

The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation is the worldwide leader for research to cure type 1 diabetes. It sets the global agenda for diabetes research, and is the largest charitable funder and advocate of diabetes science worldwide.
It is also one of the causes near and dear to Atlas Merchandise, which is why we have jumped at the chance to provide merchandise for some of its fundraising teams. For several years, the t-shirts we created for Caitlyn’s Crew (designed by the young, feisty fundraiser herself) won the t-shirt contest. We don’t know how this year’s shirt will do, but we do believe that everyone wins when funds are raised for good causes! If you’d like to donate to a very worthy cause, click the JDRF link above.
