GILDAN, I went through my t-shirts and realized majority of them were made by Gildan. Gildan has great products that last and are comfortable. I am excited that they are teaming up with a great program, My Stuff Bags to help children in foster care.
Here is what came in my care package! I love the blue sweatshirt and the nice fit of the women's t-shirts. :)

About My Stuff Bags
The My Stuff Bags Foundation provides new belongings, comfort and hope to thousands of children each year that must be rescued from abuse, neglect and abandonment across the United States. Established in 1998, the My Stuff Bags program began as a response to a cry for help from the very people who rescue and care for abused, neglected and abandoned children. As people nationwide sent donations of new children’s items and funding, what began around the kitchen table grew to a 7,000 square foot warehouse operation that to date, has provided over 400,000 My Stuff Bags to children in over 1,400 agencies in 49 states. We supply duffels free of charge and our ultimate goal is to provide a My Stuff Bag filled with new belongings to each of the nearly 300,000 children each year who must enter crisis shelters and foster care with nothing of their own.
