Many artists, graphic designers and others are using their talents to help relief efforts in Haiti. We can help by buying artwork, t-shirts, and even furniture from various places. See below for some options with links to websites and details.
This gorgeous t-shirt was designed by Thomas De Santis and Ivan Tarrazo Sanchex of Montro. They’ve gotten one of their printers, Shirts Our Business, to donate the printing, and they are donating 100% of proceeds from sales of the t-shirt to the American Red Cross Haiti Relief and Development Fund.
A number of talented photographers, including Bonnie Tsang, Jonas Peterson, Sean Flanigan and many others are offering up prints of their artwork through an auction on the photography blog Switchcities. All proceeds go to the relief efforts in Haiti.
All proceeds of the Craft Hope Etsy shop will benefit Doctors Without Borders in Haiti. All items have been generously donated by the crafting community. If you’d like to donate an item please visit the Craft Hope website.
2Modern, one of my favorite on-line sources for fun housewares, will be donating 10% of our profits from all orders placed, until January 31st. So, if you’re in the market for a lovely Eames chair or something like it, be sure to buy from 2Modern this month!
Lastly, you can only participate in this one if you’re going to an NBA game soon, but I think what Nike is doing is great. Read the article below.
Nike is putting out a shoe designed by students from Forest Park Elementary School in Boynton Beach. Apparently half of the students are of Haitian descent, and many of their families were affected by the earthquake. The shoe is to be unveiled next week when NBA players will wear them. Then they’ll be auctioned off at a game, with the money going to recovery effort in Haiti.
