Threadless reached out to two of their designers from the Dominican Republic to create the “Men anpil chay pa lou” shirt (translation: “Many Hands Make the Load Lighter“). Threadless will be donating 100% of the proceeds of the tee sale to the American Red Cross (up to $100,000).
Designers Thomas De Santis and Ivan Tarrazo Sanchez gave their thoughts:
Thomas says, “Our inspiration (for the tee was) the amazing Haitian street art. It provides a true sense of daily life and community through the use of gorgeous colors.”
Ivan adds, “We hope that the money raised with the tee we raise awareness as to the importance, not only of immediate assistance, but of the creation of the infrastructure needed to respond in similar crises.”
