Creators of the organization say the Honor a Hero Project was created as a way “to give coworkers and communities a means to unite together to stand up and show support during times of unimaginable uncertainty, pain, and loss of first responders.”

Morgen Bona, co-founder, and Executive Director says, “While providing a way to financially support families by donating all the proceeds to them is necessary, people everywhere honoring and remembering heroes is priceless.”

The shirt is available for purchase now through February 10.

You can order one on their website.
