Have you ever noticed that after a Super Bowl win (or other professional sports championship), the hats, shirts, and other merchandise proclaiming the winner are already being worn by the winning team at the end of the game? That means they must have been manufactured before the winner was known; therefore, merchandise proclaiming he other winner (e.g. Arizona in Super Bowl XLIII
) must also have been made.
I’ve often wondered what happens to it. Well, I finally found the answer
; the “misprinted” merchandise is given to World Vision.
The international Christian humanitarian aid group works with Major League Baseball, the NFL, and the NBA to collect misprinted merchandise and distribute it to people living in impoverished nations.
I can’t help but wonder if the confused look on the little girl’s face means she knows that her T-Shirt is wrong, but I’m glad the merchandise doesn’t go to waste.
