These are overwhelming times…so many people need help and there’s so much to do. That’s why Justin Miskowski and James Runkle started HealHoboken.com, to create a place to amplify all the ways to help, so we can all pitch in. The idea is to make it as simple and easy as possible to get involved.
And now there is a new (and stylish) way to help! The Local Thread has just released a line of Heal Hoboken t-shirts and even a tote bag – all of the net proceeds go to support the Hoboken Relief Fund, which helps individuals and businesses in Hoboken who have suffered significant hardship as a result of COVID-19.
Here’s how it all works together: Miskowski Design donated their artwork (and 100% of the usual licensing fees) to this partnership. When you purchase from The Local Thread, you make that donation larger and help more people. Bonus! You have a cool t-shirt and totebag that tells everyone you see (because you’re out and about a bit more now–safely, with a mask and at a distance) that you’re in on this project: to heal Hoboken and to let everyone know that this little city will be okay, in part thanks to you. Just by wearing your shirt or carrying your totebag, you help spread the word about the Heal Hoboken initiative, more people purchase from The Local Thread, and the donations continue to grow.
It’s that simple and easy to help.
You can get involved with this great work by grabbing your Heal Hoboken t-shirt or totebag here. We can’t wait to see you out and about showing your support!!
