I mentioned earlier today that we had had a few ideas about how to assist in relief from Hurricane Harvey. The first one was through donations to a specific Houston family. This post is about another way to help a local charity.
Through SB Nation’s partnership with Web Community Tees, we have arranged for all proceeds from the sale of this new BRB t-shirt to go directly to The Houston Food Bank. Credit for the incredible design should go to our own UprootedTexan; he came up with the idea and the graphic wizards at Web Community Tees made it a reality. The shirt is available in white, gray, and (battle) red.
Confession: I was initially a bit reticent about memorializing such a horrific event. But the positive message conveyed by the shirt—one that I think so accurately shows what our great city is all about—and the vital fact that a truly outstanding charity will reap the rewards from all sales outweighs the potential negativity in my mind.
Thus, here’s what I’d humbly suggest, Texans fans...
1. Buy a shirt by clicking here. Buy more than one, even.
2. Take solace in the fact that your decision to buy a shirt benefited The Houston Food Bank.
3. Know that your purchase means people who need the services of The Houston Food Bank will get the help they need.

UPDATE (10/13/17): Thanks to BRB and WCT, $1,010.05 was donated to The Houston Food Bank as a result of this campaign. On behalf of everyone here at BRB, thank you for your kindness and willingness to help those in need.
