11 Dec Astronaut Buzz Aldrin Offers Edgy Mars Tees to Raise Funds for Charity The perfect out-of-this-world gift!
Cape Canaveral, FL – When Apollo 11 moonwalker Buzz Aldrin says something he doesn’t sugarcoat it; and the tee he’s been sporting around the world with the catch phrase “Get Your Ass to Mars” (GYATM) proves it. Now, after an outpour of support from celebrities, politicians, astronauts and space fans, it has prompted the outspoken astronaut to offer the shirt, and variations of them for babies and children, to the public, with all proceeds benefiting the nonprofit Buzz Aldrin’s ShareSpace Foundation.
“There is very little doubt in my mind, that the next monumental achievement of humanity will be the first landing by an Earthling on the planet Mars,” said Aldrin. “These shirts are just a reminder to all human kind – let’s get there!”
Of course the baby rompers and children shirts are a bit toned down, sporting the phrase “Generation Mars” and “Get Your Butt to Mars”, but the crowd’s favorite by far is GYATM.
A small run of the shirts were offered after Buzz wore a prototype while on the 45th Anniversary of Apollo 11 tour in July and sold out within an hour of tweeting the information. This new, second run, featuring Aldrin’s signature and official logo, were released Monday and are available at www.store.sharespace.orgbut won’t last long! Shirts may be purchased online and if purchased by December 18, are guaranteed in time for the holidays.
