Storenvy, the popular one stop place on the Internet to set up your own online shop and have goods screen printed for amazing prices have joined hands with artist from around the globe to put together a nice collection of Hope For Haiti tees. The shirts are priced at $14 and $8 from each tee will go to the American Red Cross to help support earthquake relief efforts in Haiti.

It’s been really depressing watching and reading the news this past week, especially with all of the Haiti coverage. Seeing all those people lose everything that they had and have known is truly heartbreaking. And that’s why I’ll continue to blog about these Haiti relief Â T-Shirts that continue to be released and whose profits go to help those suffering in Haiti.
The latest Haiti relief shirt comes to use from Yellow Black & White. The shirt is called “Tout Bagay Deja Byen.” I had no idea what that meant, until I took a peak at the product description. After learning its meaning, I thought that it was the perfect phrase for such a sad time. The tee is available in black and red colorways and is on presale for $25 with 100% of the proceeds going to Haitian. The printing for this project was donated by Print My Goods.
“We have been able to visit Haiti a couple times in the past. This past summer I actually spent a week and a half there, about 100 miles outside of Port-Au-Prince. While we were there we saw a sign with these words on it â€œTout Bagay Deja Byen.â€ In english this phrase would be translated as â€œAll things are already goodâ€ or â€œEverything is already OK.â€ It was explained that this was a statement that Haitians use as a means of spreading hope. To us this statement best represents what we have experienced for ourselves and we have learned about the Haitian people in the last few days. They are incredibly strong and hopeful.”
The Haiti Relief tees continue to roll in, the newest coming from possibly the most dominate T-Shirt brand on the Internet – Threadless. Many Hands Make The Load Lighter is a shirt that was designed by the duo Thomas De Santis and Ivan Tarrazo Sanchez. The inspiration for the shirt De Santis says was”â€œAmazing Haitian street art. It provides a true sense of daily life and community through the use of gorgeous colors.â€
“We reached out to Haiti’s neighbors and asked two of our designers from the Dominican Republic to design this tee, Thomas De Santis and Ivan Tarrazo Sanchez. Theyâ€™ve declined their printing award and are instead giving it to the Red Cross. Shirts Our Business, one of our printers, has donated their printing time and ink. And everyone here has been rallying to get this tee out to retain focus on the relief effort. We hope you too, will send this along to your friends and fams to show your support!”
For only $10 you can pick up Many Hands Make The Load Lighter with 100% of the proceeds (up to $100,000) will be donated to the Red Cross to aid relief efforts inHaiti.

Disasters have an uncanny way of pulling people together from different parts of the world to help out in any way they can. Our friends over at Doubletake Clothing is doing their part and have just released a Help Haiti tee to help send recovery funds over to the people affected by this disaster.
Given the catastrophic events that occurred in Haiti, Doubletake Clothing wants to do something to help the 3 million people affected by the earthquake. No words can describe what the Haitian population is going through right now.
All proceeds will go to several Haiti Earthquake Relief Organizations including UNICEF, Doctors Without Borders, and CSI Ministries. Doubletake Clothing is taking care of all domestic shipping costs (free shipping!) and working with suppliers to reduce the cost of materials to maximize the donation to Haiti. We will periodically update our estimated total donation.
With nearly 100,000 people estimated to be dead or missing, every little pice of help counts.
