The SnapHook Project - Local Designers, Local Charities

Hi
I'm involved in an idea (www.snaphook.io) that hopes to raise money for local charities, and wonder would anyone here be interested?
The concept is simple:
Similar to designedbyhumans, we source unique designs, print them on quality tshirts, and sell them via our website, and pay the artist a commission on each sale.
The difference, however, the store only displays local designers (resident in the UK)
AND
Profits are split between the artist and a local charity of their choice (retail price of £20, £2.50 to artist, £2.50 for charity)
So a brand that supports local artists and local charities.

Anyone interested in participating, let me know. Any and all feedback welcome
Cheers
Gordon

So how does the other £15 break down... it's not exactly a good deal for a charity if you end up taking £10 for your own profit.

Hi Levi, thanks for the note.
So the idea is to drop ship the tshirts using a British fulfilment agent (ie outsource production and delivery)
For redbubble quality tshirts (bella&canvas) with dtg print quality, the cost is between 10.30 and 10.80 (if you know a cheaper local drop shipper I'm open to any suggestions). Vat @23% is approx £2.20 Postage and packaging within the uk is £1.45. With £2.50 to the artist and £2.50 for their chosen charity. Which would leave less than £1 per shirt used to Pay for the website.
Does that make it clearer? Again open to all feedback/suggestions.
Thanks, Gordo
