 Respond & Rebuild announces a T-Shirt Design Competition! Think You Can?

Respond & Rebuild is a volunteer organization started in the wake of Sandy by a group of friends who volunteered together in Haiti. They provide a free service of mucking out, gutting out, removing mold and rebuilding homes of Rockaway residents affected by Hurricane Sandy.


Contest details:

  • Can you hone your graphic design skills on a logo that makes mold removal as hip and cool as the Respond & Rebuild staff makes mold removal?
  • Can you design a rockin “Mold-Slayer” T-shirt?
  • Can you make “Spore-Busting” the next big thing?
  • Can you create a design that is as awesome as the feeling you get when you help clean an NYC family’s home of mold?
  • Think You Can?
  • Email us your design (find t-shirt templates here), and make sure you have “liked” our facebook page.
  • Keep checking back and we will put your design on our Facebook page in our
  • “T-Shirt Design Contest” album, then tell your friends to “like” us too so they can vote!
  • The three designs with the most votes from our Facebook friends will be voted on by the Respond & Rebuild Team and the winning design will become our first t-shirt!
