Guy Harvey to Donate $10.00 Per "Save Our Gulf" Shirt to Support Gulf Marine Life

The effects of the oil disaster in the Gulf of Mexico will be with us for some time. Much of the damage to marine life is not yet even known. While the highly migratory fish species will be able to avoid the oil, the juvenile stages cannot. Neither can air-breathing turtles, seabirds, and mammals that must interact with the surface.

Money is needed to help research how marine life will be impacted and to understand how those impacts can best be dealt with to support Gulf marine life. To help provide those funds, Guy has created two Gulf of Mexico T-shirt designs. The first delivery of the shirts will be July 14. Ten dollars of the $20.00 retail price will be donated to a special account within the Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation (GHOF) who will then direct the money to research projects and support efforts that Guy and the GHOF believe will provide the greatest benefit to marine life in the Gulf.

"Gulf Life" t-shirt

'Gulf Life' t-shirtUnlike many other efforts to tie products into a cause that are more marketing focused than causesupported, this effort is both unusual and sincere. It reflects the serious marine resource interests of Guy Harvey and his clothing partner AFTCO Bluewater, who both have a long history of supporting a better understanding of the marine world.

This donation effort includes all who are involved with the Guy Harvey T-shirt business. Six dollars of the donation will come from Guy, AFTCO Bluewater and its suppliers, and from our retail partners. The other $4.00 will come from general GHOF funds, part of which, are generated from the proceeds of all other Guy Harvey sportswear sales. While many people don't know it, Guy Harvey Sportswear sales have for years generated money to help the marine resource. In 2009 AFTCO Bluewater contributed over $200,000.00 from Guy Harvey Sportswear sales to the GHOF for their use to help protect, conserve, enhance and better understand the marine resource.

Thank you for your support of Guy Harvey sportswear products. Whether you purchase a Guy Harvey T-shirt or other Guy Harvey item directly from this site, or from any of our many retail partners, you can do so knowing that part of your purchase will go towards valuable work on behalf of the marine resource.
