United We Sand - Fargo Moorhead Flood 2009

My friend, Brenda Levos is a graphic designer and came up with the "United We Sand" logo for the 2009 flood. There are t-shirts, sweatshirts and decals for sale with the proceeds going to the Impact Give Back Fargo Flood Fund.

Below is information from Brenda's website on the tshirts:

In March of 2009, the Fargo, ND and Moorhead, Minnesota experienced record flooding of the Red River. North Dakota also saw flooding at unprecedented levels statewide. During this crisis, communities came together as one, young and old, all working together to fill over 3 million sandbags in an attempt to save the city from widespread flooding. The one really unifying thing that I saw was that all of the people who had participated in a sandbagging line had this big residual sand spot on the front of their shirts, I thought it would be fun to have shirts made which reminded us of the Community in action!
Hot off the presses, the "United We Sand" shirts are now available in the Fargo Moorhead Area, as well as online from a local organization. I still have the CafePress site up, but having a local producer and distributor allows us to give a greater margin back to the community while keeping the prices reasonable.
T-shirts are selling for $12 each, with $6 being donated to the Impact Give Back Fargo Flood Fund, with Dakota Medical Foundation matching the first $25,000. With the match, the entire purchase price of the shirts is attributed to the fund.
