Who doesn’t love a t-shirt? Who doesn’t love a t-shirt that also gives back? Ever since relief and recovery began, you’ve probably seen scores of inspirational t-shirt designs attached to charities flooding your newsfeed (pun not intended, but it works). As a mom whose wardrobe consists of mainly t-shirts (casual and formal, of course), I love this idea! It’s a wonderful way not only to show your support of Louisiana and those affected by this disaster, but you also put a little money into the pockets of organizations and victims who need your support. Win-win! But with soooo many designs out there the choices are a bit overwhelming, so we’ve compiled a list (in no particular order) of the raddest designs and also the most reputable (always be mindful of scams attempting to turn a profit at the expense of others). So go ahead you philanthropic genius who dresses for comfort – buy a flood shirt and support the relief effort all while looking awesome. You could even take it a step further and buy some for flood victims as a meaningful gift.
