Shirts Across America is a non-profit organization dedicated to moving families out of FEMA trailers one family at a time in the Gulf Coast Region.
In January 2007, several high school students started the Hope Floats T-shirt campaign. Over 500 shirts were sold around Seattle and Washington state high schools. Since the need in Mississippi and New Orleans is ongoing, the students started a website, ShirtsAcrossAmerica.Org, to sell the shirts online.
Over the last year, Shirts Across America has started programs at six different high schools in the Seattle area, hosted two benefit concerts, and raised over $12,000.
They recently sent a delegation of 40 high school and adult leaders to Gulfport, Mississippi to rebuild a family's home. Every dollar we raise goes directly towards families still recovering on the Gulf Coast.
