In Dubuque, IA, the owner of a screen-printing sportswear business is assisting Haitian disaster relief with the T-shirt pictured above. Tom Rauen, who started Envision Sports Designs in Dubuque four years ago, is selling the shirts for $10 and will donate 100% of the proceeds to the American Red Cross. His goal is to raise $25,000 from sales of the shirts, which he obtained as blanks from a Haitian T-shirt company that lost one of its sewing factories in the catastrophic eathquake of January 12. Schools and businesses in and around Dubuque have ordered hundreds of the “help haiti” T-shirts, which can be purchased online here. Rauen is using Facebook, Twitter, and other social media to promote his cause. Local media coverage can be found here and here. Mr. Rauen has our deepest respect for what he is doing to help a devastated country and its citizens. We feel certain that many others in graphic communications are making their own charitable efforts on Haiti’s behalf. Please let us know about them so that they can be properly acknowledged in this blog.
