Country As Cornbread - Hurricane Flo Relief Tee

25.00

Ever the champion for rural eastern North Carolina, Vivian Howard has set out to raise money for families in Jones County displaced by Hurricane Florence. This limited edition t-shirt will be on sale only through October 31st at midnight. All proceeds will go to the North Carolina Community Foundation’s Disaster Relief Fund, and directly into the hands of those families in Jones County who need it most. T-shirts will be printed after the fundraiser closes and ship in 3-4 weeks.

Here’s a note from Vivian:

“In the long, wet wake of Hurricane Florence I’ve gotten a thousand calls and notes of concern about the state of things in eastern North Carolina. Lucky for me, my world is fine. Around me, however, the landscape is decidedly different. Just 30 miles from here, Jones County, N.C., was badly battered. The national news didn't make it there as Jones County is rural with 20 percent of its residents living below the poverty line. It’s a place that can be easily overlooked. Many of these people didn’t have much before the flood and now they have nothing. Join me in raising money to help these families rebuild and begin again.

“You may have heard the catch phrase ‘hurricane recovery is a marathon, not a sprint.’ It’s true. Florence will linger a long time in Wilmington, New Bern and Morehead City. But those places have a voice and a unified effort to rebuild. Jones County is way, way off the beaten path with no city to share its story. Please buy a shirt, share this link and make sure rural North Carolina is a part of the marathon.
