When we were fundraising for our first adoption, we sold t-shirts that spring that said "Jesus Loves the Children of the World" with a cute design on them. We took pre-orders and pre-payment so we only had to order what we needed and didn't need to have money upfront. If I remember correctly we made $4/shirt and sold over 100 of them for a profit of a little over $400, which at the time paid our I-600A fee.
We ordered our t-shirts from New Life Tees, and personalized some with "We support a Seeger baby! Coming soon from India!" on the back of shirts ordered from our family members, with the rest left plain.
New Life Tees no longer carries the design we ordered, but they do have new "Aaron Shirts" that say "Jesus Loves Me" in different languages on the front for $3.95 each - cheap enough you could make a great profit!
I am sure there are other wholesale t-shirt places you could use if you are not a Christian or desire a shirt other than what New Life offers. Spring is a great time to hit people up to buy t-shirts for the summer!
Many blessings on all of your fundraising efforts! Those little ones are truly worth it :).
