Doctors of the World-USA teamed up with designer company Marchesa to launch a Hurricane Sandy Relief T-Shirt.
Native New Yorker Georgina Chapman created the specifically designed “I LOVE NEW YORK” shirt to help benefit Doctors of the World-USA’s Hurricane Sandy Relief Campaign, which helps to provide health care to Rockaway residents affected by the storm.
“As a New Yorker who has witnessed the incredible damage caused by Hurricane Sandy, this was an amazing opportunity for Marchesa to raise funds and awareness of Doctors of the World’s Hurricane Sandy Relief Campaign in the Rockaways,” Chapman said. “Their response to Hurricane Sandy has been remarkable and it was wonderful to create a specially designed I LOVE NEW YORK T-Shirt to benefit Doctors of the World’s Hurricane Sandy Relief Campaign.”
The Empire State Development Corporation formally gave permission to Marchesa and Doctors of the World-USA to use the “I LOVE NEW YORK” design.
“Giving Doctors of the World-USA and Marchesa rights to the beloved I LOVE NEW YORK logo was an easy and obvious ‘yes,’” said Khorshid Rahmaninejad, director of licensing and public relations for I LOVE NEW YORK. “We are proud to support their efforts to rebuild lives and communities that were so severely impacted by Sandy.”
The shirt is available for pre-order at doctorsoftheworld.org/sandyshirt.
