Create a design inspired by Foster The People’s music to benefit Foster The Future.
The three-member band of “Pumped Up Kicks” fame came together in 2009 through mutual friends in the Los Angeles music scene. Once Foster The People released their debut album “Torches” in 2011, their music began hitting the top of the charts and was nominated for two Grammy Awards. Foster The People spent much of 2012 touring and playing indie pop for fans worldwide and is now working on their second album.
Foster The Future joined the band for their 2012 North American tour. Together, they created events and projects to encourage and inspire people to help one another and build community. Now you can join the band in their support for Foster The Future’s work. Use Foster the People’s dancy blend of traditional rock and electronic pop as inspiration to create a t-shirt design. 25% of the sales from the winning design will benefit the cause.
