This is a WONDERFUL idea, IMHO.  Not only does Threadless have a  
dedicated and talented community of artists, but they'd also handle  
the "storefront" part.

The American Red Cross did a "loves Threadless" competition in April  
2006 in honor of their 125th anniversary.  Three winning designs were  
selected from hundreds of entries, and for each shirt sold with a  
winning design, Threadless donated $5.  (I am not certain how much  
Threadless eventually donated.)

As far as I'm concerned, this avenue is worth exploring.
