We’ve been blown away by the number of companies, big and small, that are donating 10%, 20%, or even more of their sales to help the people of Haiti. But when Threadless announced they were donating 100% of the proceeds, up to $100,000, from the sale of a specially-designed tee to the American Red Cross Haiti Relief and Development Fund, that definitely got our attention.
Featuring the words men anpil chay pa lou which translates to many hands make the load lighter, Threadless’ tee was the work of Thomas De Santis and Ivan Tarrazo Sanchez, two designers from the Dominican Republic.
Reading about the altruistic collaboration between everyone involved in this effort puts a lump in my throat. Sure, you may to explain the meaning of the words on your shirt to everyone you meet, but what a wonderful sentiment to pass on as we help to rebuild a country. -Christina
