Designed by artist Geoff McFetridge, this limited-edition T-shirt was created to raise money for this year's Checkerboard Day donation recipients. The ten global organizations receiving the funds are dedicated to the mental health and well-being of youth across the globe through creativity. 100% of proceeds for each shirt sold will be donated to The Vans Checkerboard Fund at Tides Foundation. The tee is a heavier weight 100% ringspun cotton t-shirt with a classic fit. 

Geoff McFetridge on creativity and mental health:
​ "As an artist, I have had to continue to be creative during this complicated time. I feel lucky for that. In what I do, my best work is done when I am most present. This clarity allows me to look inward to create works. The work I have done during the pandemic has connected me with feelings that I didn't even know I was experiencing. I create much of my work using images of people, usually in pieces or very simplified. Something has happened that these days, the figures have become more real. Drawn from memory, but very close memories  memories of yesterday. Art has the ability to connect us to the unknown that is often, surprisingly, within us. The artwork [created for Checkerboard Day] shows figures in a way that feels like what we see all over the city parks. People hanging out, being... humans. People seeking some human connection  that is such an important part of mental health."
