My family was personally and severely affected by Hurricane Irma. In collaboration with my parents and local community members, we decided to distribute 600 free t-shirts in affected areas. I helped by designing uplifting t-shirts to mimic the resilient attitude of locals. The first 600 were printed on safety-green tees so that people could be easily seen while clearing debris and also seen at night without electricity.
I continue to sell these limited edition white t-shirts here. Donating a percentage of profits to ongoing Irma Recovery in the Florida Keys.
The Florida Keys holds two lifetimes of memories for my family. We hope to see it return to its former glory soon.
Special thank you to Mile Marker 50 Relief Project that distributed the bulk of our inventory. And another thank you to artist and friend Marlon Pruz who volunteered in local distribution.
