Restoring the Shore One Shirt at a Time
Rowan CCCA student Derek Koch (Art with a specialization in Graphic Design) is a NJ native with strong connections to the areas devastated by Hurricane Sandy. So, after the storm abated, he used his skills in graphic art and his dedication to the area to design a graphic for relief efforts.
It was a good idea that went viral fast and soon Koch was able to sell his idea to ERGO clothing, a company he had worked for in the past. ERGO started selling the shirts at a rapid clip and has generated over $300,000 for relief efforts so far.
You can check out more about ERGO, and the Restore the Shore initiative on their facebook page. Or, head over to the Rowan Relief page to see more about how Rowan is connecting to Restore the Shore and other relief organizations and efforts.
