After a disaster there are almost as many places to donate to as there are people who need assistance. From individual Venmos to national nonprofits, you can find someone collecting for whichever cause is closest to your heart.
But, if you’d rather wear your cause on your sleeve, we have two options for you.
Over the past few years, local favorite T-shirt company Dirty Coast (5631 Magazine St., 504-324-3745; 1320 Magazine St., 504-766-0752; 713 Royal St., 504-324-6730; DirtyCoast.com) has updated their “Soul is Waterproof 504” design for use as a fundraising and awareness tool for different Louisiana zip codes, and even the Bahamas and California. They’re now offering “Soul is Waterproof: Louisiana” with a portion of proceeds of each shirt supporting the important work of BayouFund.org.
If your wardrobe needs a little more levity during this time, local artist Byron Sonnier (ByronSonnier.com) has you covered. Available in black, yellow or white, “Don’t Mess With My Toot Toot” sales proceeds benefit Hurricane Ida Mutual Aid Funds in South Louisiana (for free shipping make sure to choose “hurricane fundraiser”).
