I deleted the previous post because I missed the ironic message behind this shirt. But I’m still not sure how to interpret it…
Obviously a play on the Red campaign. But it’s either being oddly harsh on that or way too flippant with Communism. What’s the deal?

[Update: The most charitable interpretation I can come up with is that the shirt is saying that by tying our purchases to ethical causes, consumer capitalism has sort of come around to Communism. This is lame though. Capitalism isn’t anti-charity any more than Communism is pro-exchange. So what’s the point?
