What IS LGAD?
821 million people go to bed hungry every single night. 663 million people don’t have access to clean water. There are roughly 25 million people victims of human trafficking all over the world. CO2 levels are at 415 PPM for first time in 3 million+ years. 736 million people around the world live on less than $1.90 a day.
I could go on and on and on.
Let’s Give A Damn was created because we believe that every single human has a role to play in being an agent of change in our world. We believe each person must give a damn. Each one of us possesses something(s) that the world needs in order to become a better place.
Let’s Give A Damn was birthed out of 15+ years of work in the humanitarian world and a deep desire to help people overcome the hurdles and excuses we make for why we don’t give a damn. We aim to help people get rid of the excuses holding them back and we empower them to give more damns than ever before.

HELP US provide clean
water for OUR Brothers & sisters IN THE BAHAMAS!
Between August 26 - 28, Hurricane Dorian pummeled The Bahamas—specifically Grand Bahama and Abaco Island—leaving over 70,000 people without water, without food, and homeless. The death count is currently around 50. This number will rise as they find the thousands of Bahamians currently missing.
We have an opportunity to give a damn. We must respond.
My friend Carlos and his team are currently on the ground providing water and food to people. Additionally, they are helping with clean up and the rebuilding of homes. They’ve asked us to help them raise funds to purchase water filtration systems. This is where you come in.
We’re making a t-shirt for you. When you preorder this t-shirt, 50% of the profits will go directly to our team on the ground. For every $150 we raise, we will purchase a water filtration system that will provide clean water for 100 people per day for up to 10 years. I’d love for us to buy at least 10 of these water filtration systems. Can we do it? Hell yes we can.
This preorder campaign will run for the next 7 days. After the campaign is over, our screen printer will begin fulfilling our t-shirt order. 12-15 days after we place our order, the t-shirts will be ready and we’ll ship them out to you immediately! If you’re wondering why we’re doing preorders instead of having the t-shirts already made to ship out now, our answer is simple. We want to make sure we can spend as much money as possible on these water filtration systems. We’re more likely to do that if we order the exact amount of t-shirts needed versus having extra inventory sitting around after the campaign is over.
What are you waiting for! Buy a t-shirt and give the gift of clean water to our brothers and sisters suffering in The Bahamas.
We aren’t anti-prayer when tragedy strikes. But if your thoughts and prayers don’t lead you to action, what’s the point?
- Comfort Colors Heavyweight T-Shirt
- 6.1 oz., 100% Ringspun Cotton
- Preshrunk, Soft-Washed, Garment-Dyed Fabric
- Made in the USA
*Because a significant portion of the profits from this campaign are being used for charity work in The Bahamas, we will not be able to refund your purchase. If you purchase the wrong size, we will do our best to find the right size for you. Thanks for understanding!
We’ve Raised $1100!
So far, We’ve raised enough money to purchase 7 of the water filtration systems! Thank you! Let’s keep going. We want to purchase at least 10 of them.
You Don’t want a t-shirt but you still want to help out? You can!
If you want to help out but don’t want a t-shirt, you can still give! Send your financial gift through Venmo (@Nicklaparra) or Cash App ($NickLaparra). Every penny you give will be used to buy more water filtration systems for our friends who are suffering in The Bahamas.
*In the transaction notes, please add “water filtration systems” and your email address so I can email you photo verification that your gift was used it its entirety to purchase water filtration systems.
