BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — A Buffalo-based company that prides itself on "doing good" has reached a milestone, 26 Shirts announced it has now donated $1 million to those in need.

The company is based in Buffalo but also has also sold limited-edition sports themed t-shirts to benefit those in need in Chicago, Cincinnati and Pittsburgh.

"For every shirt sold, a donation is made to a specified family in need or charitable organization. Our primary focus is needs associated with health/medical concerns, or unexpected family emergencies," the 26 Shirts website reads.

For each shirt sold $8 from the purchase goes to the corresponding cause and $1 goes to the contributing artist who designed it. More information on 26 Shirts can be found here.
