On September 6th 2019 Hurricane Dorian's Eye went over beautiful Ocracoke Island, North Carolina. It caused catastrophic flooding with a tidal surge of 8' feet and extreme structural damage around the entire island. There were over 600 homes with damage and flooding which left hundreds of people and families homeless. We lost 80% of the business on the island and all of the islands infrastructure.
This is how #OCRACOKESTRONG was born. A t-shirt print on the island had extra shirts and printed them and give them to locals and volunteers on the island.
There was such a demand for the shirts from people all over after seeing them everyone wanted one. So we came up with the idea to sell them and use the 100% of the proceeds to benefit the local elderly people on the island with helping them get back to were they were before the hurricane. Most had no flood insurance and lost everything and many of their homes had to be torn down.
So we wanted to do something more personal for them by give them a wish list and providing them with what they need or want. So thank you for your support in making someone happy. We are going to come back from this better than before!
