Hurricane Harvey Relief T-shirts

We would like to thank everyone for their outpouring of support and well wishes. It’s an honor to be part of such an amazing community that has pulled together so quickly to help everyone in need! There has never been a time more relevant than right now to show that together, we are all #palegoatstrong!

We initially developed this shirt to serve as an internal morale builder for our TechStar Family. The response was tremendous and so we decided to offer the shirt as a fundraiser to help those in need. 100% of the proceeds from this shirt sale will be distributed immediately to members of the TechStar family that have been seriously impacted by this disaster.

Just to name a few:

  • Eric Fontenot
  • Josh Longcor
  • Luke Vegas
  • Stephen Waldrop

We are evaluating additional needs on an individual basis and will distribute where needed, including local charities.

Together we are all #palegoatstrong!
