Ergo Clothing gets behind Sandy relief efforts with Restore The Shore
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 5 November, 2012 : - - Ergo Clothing is proud to announce its partnership with Restore The Shore Projects in a disaster relief effort. Please, help us rebuild all the lives that were crushed by Hurricane Sandy. Restore The Shore Projects was started by Ergo intern, Derek Koch, who is a 2nd year graphic design student at Rowen University in Glassboro, NJ. Koch and friend, Travis LeBar, started a facebook page with Koch's design, and it went viral overnight.
"Derek was an amazing intern for us this past summer," stated Ergo Co-Founder, Pete DiSpirito. "When he came to me with the initial design, we hit the ground running." Product will be shipping within 7-10 days and 100% of the profits will be donated to various charities and organizations. Product is available at: shop.ergoclothing.com
Surf Shops sign on to help in Virginia Beach
Virginia Beach surfers and surf shops have collected food, water, clothes and money for Superstorm Sandy victims in the Northeast. The shops, including Wave Riding Vehicles, 17th Street, Juice Box, Freedom and Surf and Adventure, collected enough items to fill four box trucks and a Billabong tour bus. The Billabong surf company agreed to help with travel expenses as well.
Ten volunteers will leave Virginia Beach with the items at 7 a.m. Monday. The caravan's first stop will be to deliver goods to residents on the Eastern Shore, said organizer Raven Lundy. "I really appreciate the whole community helping us so much," Lundy said. " I am actually overwhelmed with all the support people have showed us."
Lundy said people donated items from as far away as the Outer Banks.
