Cheap American Apparel Clothes Fight Cancer

Last year, Relay for Life of Penn State raised over $4,000 for the American Cancer Society by selling American Apparel clothing to Penn State students at wholesale prices–a feat so impressive that they’ve decided to do it again this year.

The sale runs through next Thursday, April 1. Payment by cash, check, or PayPal is accepted, and 100% of the profits benefit Relay for Life of Penn State, which in turn benefits the American Cancer Society. For more information on specific ordering procedure, visit the Facebook event page. If you’ve ever rolled your eyes at an AA price tag, you know this is a good deal.

Because Relay for Life of Penn State is conducting this sale for a nonprofit organization, they were able to obtain a license from American Apparel to sell their products wholesale, eliminating the retail markup you’d see in a store. There are no costs for paying employees, leasing retail space, and, most of all, no profit being made. So in order to get the special price, you have to order through this particular sale. You would have anyway to help out the American Cancer Society, right? Two birds, one stone. Your move.
