"Somos Nashville" means "We Are Nashville" in Spanish. You can buy the shirt for $20 here.
On May 11, the City Paper reported that the campaign had raised $35,000 and had been mentioned on-screen by CNN's Anderson Cooper.
Here is the story about the Somos Nashville shirt at CoolPeopleCare.org:
[T]he key phrase ["We Are Nashville"] has ignited volunteers and supporters throughout the state and beyond, all of whom stand up to identify with people who were "handling it on our own.” Included in that group of people is Nashville's vibrant and caring Hispanic community.Buy the shirt for $20 here.
And here it is. The T-shirt that you can proudly wear knowing it did two things:
1) Supported the Community Foundation’s Flood Relief Fund and Conexión Américas (100% of the profits from this shirt will be split between these organizations) which means all money stays local in the affected areas to assist nonprofits who are helping victims of this disaster.
2) Makes a statement about the kind of community you live in that is quick to help a neighbor and rebuild a great city, including areas of people who call Nashville home, no matter where they were born.
The shirt is 100% organic cotton and printed by Friendly Arctic Printing and Design in the heart of East Nashville with non-toxic inks.
The design was donated by Rob Williams.
Shirts are currently in pre-production and will ship beginning on May 24.
