Founded in 2006, Yellow Bird Project was proudly reignited in 2017 in aid of Trekstock and calls on the world’s biggest and best music talent to design one-off, previously unseen artwork for a series of limited edition, collectable T-shirts and sweatshirts. Now a charitable initiative, Yellow Bird Project raises funds for young adults in their 20s and 30s as they live with, through and beyond cancer. The new collection, just in time for Christmas, includes nine exclusive T-shirts with original designs – ranging from hand-drawn illustrations by the artists to never before seen exclusive promotional artwork. What’s more, perfect for cosy winter evenings, the latest range also features seven all-new sweatshirts.
The winter collection joins Yellow Bird Project’s existing catalogue of designs by The National, Wolf Alice, Bloc Party, Alt-J, Everything Everything, Bastille, Bombay Bicycle Club, Bon Iver, Chvrches, FOALS, Hot Chip, Royal Blood, The Horrors, Emmy the Great and many more.

Birdy says: “I’m so happy to be a part of the new Trekstock Yellow Bird Project T-shirt collection! I drew the design for the T-shirt myself, inspired by The Kraken and Fauna, goddess of fruitfulness and spring. I really hope you like it, all the profits go to this great cause to help young adults through cancer.”
Jimmy Eat World
Jimmy Eat World says: “We are proud to partner with the Yellow Bird Project and Trekstock in the battle against cancer. All profits go to practical and emotional support for those diagnosed and living with cancer.”
Taking Back Sunday
Taking Back Sunday says: “Many of our loved ones have battled cancer. A few have beaten it and, unfortunately, many have succumbed to this horrible disease. When the Trekstock Yellow Bird Project approached us we jumped at the chance to take part in it. Together, we hope to make the lives of young adults living with cancer a little easier.”
Circa Waves says: “We’re very excited to launch this exclusive T-shirt with Yellow Bird Project and Trekstock. Yellow Bird Project put a creative spin on fundraising and all profits from this T-shirt go to supporting young people with cancer.”
Mr Scruff says: “Yellow Bird inspired the design, by the way that they spread the word about the amazing work that Trekstock do to support young people who are living with cancer.”
Sophie Epstone, Founder & CEO, Trekstock, says: “As a small UK charity, we are always completely blown away by the level of support the music industry gives us. This is our biggest collection to date and we absolutely love the designs. We could not be more grateful to all of the artists and their teams who have donated their time and creativity to make a difference to the lives of those in their 20s and 30s affected by cancer. We hope everyone enjoys the collection as much as we do, and look forward to more exciting launches in 2018!”

About Trekstock and The Yellow Bird Project:
Trekstock provides social and practical support nationwide to young adults in their 20s and 30s as they live with, through and beyond cancer.
