The worst of Hurricane Sandy might be over, but efforts to rebuild parts of New York and the rest of the East Coast have only just become. Besides donating your time and money directly to the cause, you can also show your support by shopping. Yes, that’s right! All the proceeds from these awesome T-shirts by New York-based designers go to Hurricane Sandy relief efforts.
We’re obsessed with architect and artist Jake Levine’s hilarious “Selfless” T-Shirt, which features a hand-drawn map of Manhattan with a new made-up neighbourhood that Levine named SoPo, meaning “South of Power.” All of the proceeds will go towards hurricane relief efforts, and since they come in both men’s and women’s styles, you may as well pick up one for yourself and someone you love at just $20 each. These are definitely way more clever and stylish than “I Survived Sandy” T-shirts. selflesstee.com
Brooklyn-based artist Sebastian Errazuriz created this awesome “I Still Love NY” T-Shirt (above) and this “Manhattan Blackout” T-shirt (below) by taking typical tourist T-shirts and dip-dying them to create the illusion of flood lines. All of the proceeds go to hurricane relief, so the $40 price tag is money well spent. Why not get both? shopgreyarea.com
