Solidarity T-shirts elevate cash for La Palma volcano victims
Six months into the eruption on Spain’s La Palma, many nearby organisations have started promoting T-shirts, tote baggage and other items to increase money for all those who have lost their residences or positions to the volcano.
“The information is that La Palma will keep sturdy. This is just a compact contribution to assist people who’ve been impacted,” said Pedro Garcia, 47, who manages the Creaprint printing store in Los Llanos de Aridane, the closest key city to the lava move.
At his store, a enormous mechanised printer churns out the hottest batch of black shirts emblazoned with a design of road indications listing some of the villages caught in the lava’s route. “When this ends, for us it will be just the beginning. There is an monumental total of uncertainty right now,” he stated.
Far more than 2,000 of the shirts, which retail for 10 euros ($11.58) apiece, have been offered with all the proceeds directed to victims.
One particular design exhibits a stylised map of La Palma surrounded by persons linking hands to make a coronary heart-shaped ring, though on another the words and phrases “ashes are carried away by the wind, recollections continue to be” encompass a black-and-white volcano picture. Carlos Cordero, 31, commenced offering the items at his clothes shop in Los Llanos since he felt it was the quickest way to immediately enable islanders. He has sold far more than 1,000 T-shirts and luggage.
