Pope Benedict XVI

Like I said, over at Evangelical-Cathlolicism they have a very cool idea: Buy a Shirt – Help the Poor!

Great shirts and even a mug!
There are pictures of the shirts and a clear explanation of where the monies go.

More details from Evangelical-Cathlolicism :

Many Catholic
bloggers design t-shirts and other memorabilia through We have also designed a number of items for purchase through our Consider Catholicism Shop, some of which are featured below. We deliberately marked up the shirts $1.00 over retail cost so that we can donate all profits from the items we have designed to the poor. For every item you purchase, $1.00 is donated to the Christian Foundation for Children and the Aging, a Catholic organization that suppports missions throughout the world. The rest of what you pay goes to CafePress, which manufactures the items. Thus, Katerina and I receive absolutely no profit for anything you purchase from our store. We make no money off your purchase. Every purchase you make directly benefits the CFCA; you get the cool Catholic shirt or mug, CFCA gets a little help.
