win a free “Cartel Panda” t-shirt from The Youth Cartel and WhoopTee

the fine people at WhoopTee asked us if we’d like to give out some free t-shirts. “heck, yes!” said we.

then months went by, because we’re distracted sorts of fellows here at The Youth Cartel.

eventually, i whipped up this playful wee design, with a little help from Banksy. we call him the “Cartel Panda.” and we’re going to give away five of them, completely free!

if you want one, here’s how you enter: tell us (promise us!) where you’ll wear it if you win. we’ll pick five from comments here on whyismarko and The Youth Cartel blog. it’s that easy!

deadline for entries is this thursday (tomorrow!) at 1pm, pacific.


adam and i laughed our heads off reading the entries. it was TOUGH to narrow it to five. actually, we realized we have six. so here they are:

D. Scott Miller
I will wear it in November at the National Catholic Youth Conference in Indianapolis. Not only will I wear it where 20,000 youth are gather, but also where thier adult leaders are also present. Most importantly, ReBuildMyChurch partner Tony Vasinda will be there dying of major jealousy that I am wearing the shirt!

They (we) need the cartel!

I will also wear it at the NYWC in Nashville in November, followed by The Summit in Atlanta (also in November). Whew.
