Isaiah Wakeham, a 16-year-old Cy-Fair resident, is raising money for Hurricane Harvey relief by selling T-shirts with his custom design of the state of Texas. Proceeds from the sale will be donated to Bayou City Fellowship's Harvey Relief Fund to help local victims recover.
During the hurricane, Wakeham helped his neighbors in Coles Crossing evacuate to Sampson Elementary School and later cleaned up debris in the area. According to his website, he decided to create a custom T-shirt design to provide further support for his community.
“Just to be transparent, the amount that we get to donate for each shirt will depend on how many shirts we sell and how much total shipping costs are, but we’re hoping to donate about $20 for each shirt,” Wakeham said.
As of Wednesday morning, more than 100 shirts have been sold. The t-shirts can be purchased for $25 through Sept. 15 at www.luckystripedesigns.com/texas in various sizes and colors.
