This Turks & Caicos T-shirt Company Is Donating All Of Its Profits to Local Education

And its online store is having a huge sale

I Want To Live On An Island

You may have seen these shirts around the Turks & Caicos or even abroad, emblazoned with their signature trademark saying: I Want To Live On An Island.

Since 2016, the I Want To Live On An Island (IWTLOAI) company has been selling a variety of T-shirt styles both on Providenciales and via their online store. Their message is a simple one that resonates with many, but it's their cause that makes this brand a special one. For the last few years, the team behind the shirts — TCI residents Jenny Douglas and Camille Slattery — have been donating 25 percent of their profits to school tuition for elementary school-age children who otherwise wouldn't have the opportunity to attend school. And unfortunately, there are many kids who fall into this category due to space constraints at government schools and the high cost of private schools.

Today, the IWTLOAI team is upping their efforts. Now all profits from T-shirt sales will go to sponsoring local children so they have an opportunity to attend school. That's right — every single dollar will go back to the community in the name of education.

We think that's a big reason to celebrate.

And there's more. Right now, all styles on the online store are on sale for $20 with free shipping. That's a super affordable way to get a gift for family or friends (or just for yourself) and make a difference in a child's life at the same time.

Here are some of the styles you'll find online

If you live in the Turks & Caicos, or you're here on holiday, there are even more styles (including tank tops!) available at a few different local shops. You can find the shirts at Lemon2Go, Dive Provo, Anna's Too and the boutique at Seven Stars Resort. All the vendors are located in Grace Bay, so if you're staying at a hotel in the area, you have options.
