Posted by Queen City Sportswear, LLC on 31 May, 2017 0 comments


As FC Cincinnati's season moves into full gear this summer, our Fiona Club Cincinnati t-shirts and stickers remain popular amongst soccer and hippo lovers!

Since April 5, when we launched the design, we have now contributed a total of $1271.50 in donations to the Cincinnati Zoo to help cover Fiona's costs.

We're excited to play a small role in this process and look forward to contributing even more to charitable causes as we continue to grow.  Thanks for all of your help - please continue to spread the word!

As previously mentioned, we officially became #TeamFiona with our Fiona Club Cincinnati tees and stickers back on 4/24.  In an effort to normalize our donations on a monthly basis, we recently made our 3rd payment (through the end of April) and will begin making future donations on the 1st of the month for the previous month (ie June 1, we'll pay all donations for May).

From April 5, when we launched the design, through April 30, we contributed a total of $696.50 in donations to the Cincinnati Zoo to help cover Fiona's costs.

We're excited to play a small role in this process and look forward to contributing even more to charitable causes as we continue to grow.  Thanks for all of your help - please continue to spread the word!

#FionaClubCincinnati update (with our first Cincinnati Zoo donation)!

It's been a week since we launched our #FionaClubCincinnati design and we're excited to announce that tees and stickers are now shipping!

 

We'd also like to clear the air a bit and provide some transparency...

 

Recently, the Cincinnati Zoo made a statement regarding potential fraudulent #TeamFiona shirts.  Their concern is that people are ripping off their design(s) with no intent to donate any proceeds to the cause.  

 

As far as we know, there have been no such suspicions regarding our design and intent (especially since we ARE NOT attempting to resell their designs), but we wanted to go ahead and make a donation to make sure that everyone is aware that we're legit and in no way involved in any potentially shady activity.

 

With that being said, as of 9:30am on Wednesday, April 12, we've made our initial donation to the Cincinnati Zoo in the amount of $291!  These are the proceeds from 134 shirts ($2/shirt) and 10 stickers ($0.50/sticker):

 

 

While we certainly plan to continue to be able to donate more in the coming weeks, we hope that this will reassure anyone potentially on the fence about our intentions.  If you wish to donate directly to the zoo, you can do so via this link.

 

Queen City Sportswear, LLC / 513shirts.com is a small, local business and we care about our community.  Additional charitable initiatives will be announced in the future. 

 

Fiona Club Cincinnati is availabile in adult unisex, ladies scoop neck, and youth t-shirt options.

 

 

Introducing: Fiona Club Cincinnati!

Posted by Queen City Sportswear, LLC on 06 April, 2017 0 comments

Spring is in the air and it's time to dust off the blog.

 

What originated as a lighthearted attempt to help The Pride design a tifo for an upcoming FC Cincinnati match has become one of our favorite t-shirt designs in years.  We were simply thinking about how we could incorporate two of the most popular things in Cincinnati this spring - Cincinnati's own pro soccer team and Fiona, the Cincinnati Zoo's baby hippo.

 

We were pretty pleased with the result and had a feeling that we had a winner on our hands, so we had to put it on a shirt.  In an effort to do some good along the way, we're donating $2 from the sale of each shirt to the Cincinnati Zoo!
