Our neighbors in Louisiana were devastated by historic flooding in 2016. To help our friends and fans, we created a special edition ‘Can’t Wash Us Away‘ 30A shirt, with 100% of all profits from shirt sales going straight to the Baton Rouge Area Foundation’s flood relief fund, which supports local nonprofits serving communities affected by the floods. 30A fans generously raised over $42,000 in just a few days.
This flood relief version of our Dumpster Diver tees is made from 8 recycled plastic water bottles.
The special design featured a pelican — Louisiana’s state bird — perched atop a post stamped with a silhouette of Louisiana. The phrase “can’t wash us away” is a reference to lyrics in the song “Louisiana 1927” by Randy Newman about another devastating flood.
You can still help support the effort here!
