"Many Hands Make the Load Lighter"

"Men anpil chay pa lou" or "Many hands make the load lighter" says this T-shirt created by Dominican Republic designers Thomas De Santis and Ivan Tarrazo Sanchez-- a very "fitting" saying in light of the on-going diasaster in Haiti.

The T-shirt, which was inspired by Haitian street art, is being sold for $10 on threadless.com with all proceeds benefiting the American Red Cross Haiti Relief and Development Fund. So far the endeavor has raised $70,000. Due to the T-shirt's popularity, threadless plans to raise their donation cap and print up to 15,000 more.

Go to www.threadless.com to order yours now.

T-shirt sizes include Guys Tees, Girly Tee and Kids Tee.
