Buy a shirt, save a life in Haiti
January 19, 2010
Mark Coudray, owner of a T-shirt printing business called Coudray Serigraphics, is partnering with other printers around the country, trying to raise $10 million for Haiti. The newly-formed Haitian Earthquake T-Shirt Relief Project has set up a web site where the shirt, graced with an American flag and eagle across the front, is already on display.
Organizers hope to produce 1 million shirts, which can be purchased individually for $20. However, Coudray is trying to identify local businesses who might like to be listed as sponsors on the back side of the shirts. He is also seeking partnerships with local nonprofit and service groups to help sell the T-shirts and donate the money to the Haiti relief efforts.
All net proceeds from shirt sales will go to Haitian relief efforts.
