"Men anpil chay pa lou"
(Translation: "Many Hands Make the Load Lighter")


We and some friends of ours have come together to support sending relief to Haiti. We’re donating 100% of proceeds of the sale of "Many Hands Make the Load Lighter" to the American Red Cross (up to $100,000).

We reached out to Haiti's neighbors and asked two of our designers from the Dominican Republic to design this tee,
Thomas De Santis and Ivan Tarrazo Sanchez. They’ve declined their printing award and are instead giving it to the Red Cross. Shirts Our Business, one of our printers, has donated their printing time and ink. And everyone here has been rallying to get this tee out to retain focus on the relief effort. We hope you too, will send this along to your friends and fams to show your support!

Thomas and Ivan gave us 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 with 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.”

Buy this tshirt on {Threadless}. I will insha'Allah.
