Changing the perception of old age

Last month we printed some great tour t-shirts for ChangingAging. We were really interested in what they were doing. Their charismatic spokesperson is Dr Bill Thomas.

Everyone loves t-shirts, and everyone loves free stuff. So this seems like a no-brainer, right? We wanted to get to the bottom of what was driving this, and if it was effective.
