The Internet Archive is headquartered in a building that used to be a Christian Science church. The great room includes a gorgeous stained glass dome, a pipe organ, and graceful wooden pews. We seat 400+ people in this space to show movies and to host conferences on a regular basis.
The room is beautiful, but those pews are hard on the posterior if you plan to sit there for more than 15 minutes at a time.
So we came up with a plan – let’s make some cushions! That sounds simple enough, but we are thrifty people.
We are taking old T-shirts and recycling them into cushion covers. We are looking for T-shirts from non-profits or from tech companies in particular, but we’ll take whatever you’ve got. Any size, any color, just as long as there aren’t holes in the fabric or big stains that may discourage people from sitting on that cushion.
This is where you come in! Which one of us doesn’t have a bunch of old corporate swag T-shirts sitting in the back of our closet taking up space? If you’re willing to part with those useless shirts, we’re willing to put them to use.
Drop off your shirts in person, or send your shirts to:
300 Funston Ave
San Francisco, CA 94118
