Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's)
1. How am I contributing to the charities and their causes?
We believe that every dollar earned is a dollar that should give back, which is why for every purchase you make, no matter how small or large, we will donate 10% of the sale to the featured charity. If you purchase our cause-specific tees, we will donate $10 per t shirt to the corresponding charity. We then transfer the donations to the charity on a monthly basis.
2. Why do regular t-shirts donate 10% and cause-specific tees $10?
If all your everyday purchases donated 10% to charities, our world would be a different place. Many people cannot or simply don't want to change their lifestyles to dedicate time and money to charities. This shouldn't change. What should change is the way we do business. Free World United is a for profit company working for non profit organizations. We have an entrepreneurial mentality with a social and environmental agenda. We will optimize our resources for the benefit of charities and their causes. We have to stay competitive. We want to have the agility to adapt to your needs. Because in the end, it's all about you! We want to create t shirts that speak to your lifestyle, offer you a great fit and just make you say "that's awesome"! And awesomeness should be making our world a better place. This is why more time and effort is put into each cause-specific t shirt we create because we want you to like and even prefer to buy these tees that contribute $10 to the charities. If we can do this, the way we do business should make a strong case for others to follow. Then, the choices you make will be helping out, doing good and giving back.
3. What's this about the Galapagos Islands?
The way we do business was inspired by the Galapagos Islands because our three founding brothers grew up there. It is a place with enormous natural worth and beauty, threatened by increasing human population, illegal fishing and global warming. The Galapagos taught our founders the importance of conservation and sustainability but most importantly it taught them to care. With their University of Notre Dame education and the tools and resources at their disposal, they set out to do something about it. This was the birth of Free World United.

When you click on the Track My Order link, you will be taken to the My Account login page. You need to login to your account to access the Track My Order service.
11. Will washing affect the design of my t-shirt?
We apply our designs to the t-shirt using a technology that results in fine prints that are soft to the touch and feel as though they are part of the fabric. Washing may affect the print because it causes fibers of the t-shirt to move around and stand up, sometimes distorting slightly the design, giving it a washed/worn look. We strongly recommend you wash your t-shirts inside out, with like colors and set your machine wash to cold and delicates. Finally, tumble dry low.
12. Do the 100% Cotton t-shirts shrink if washed?
We strongly recommend you wash your t-shirts inside out, with like colors and set your machine wash to cold and delicates. If higher temperatures are applied, shrinkage may occur.
