From day one, ClothMoth has donated a portion of every sale to charitable organizations
Houston, TX (PRWEB) September 17, 2008
ClothMoth Clothing + Kindness, a designer and online retailer of humorous t-shirts, announced today it will donate a portion of all profits from sales of its popular "Hurricanes are Haters" design to the Red Cross to assist ongoing hurricane recovery efforts.
The shirt, which debuted just weeks before Hurricane Ike devastated the Texas Gulf Coast, has catapulted to best seller status in the company's online store (http://www.clothmoth.net) according to company founder Joshua Merritt.
ClothMoth retailers including Storyville in Baton Rouge, LA have reported brisk sales of the design, which inspired the company to turn the shirt into a fundraiser, according to Merritt.
"From day one, ClothMoth has donated a portion of every sale to charitable organizations," Merritt said. "With 'Hurricanes are Haters,' we're increasing our contributions and making sure that the money goes where it is most needed...to the victims of hurricanes Ike and Gustav across the entire gulf coast region."
A minimum of $5.00 will be donated directly to the Red Cross for every shirt sold at its retail price of $20.00.
Orders for the design through the company's online store have come in from as far as Australia, Merritt reports.
The shirt is designed and printed in the USA on 100% sweatshop free t-shirts from American Apparel, made in fair-wage factories in Los Angeles, California.
