After two intense days of storms rocked central Oklahoma in late May and early June, media coverage drew the attention of people around the world to the plight of the state’s storm victims. The staff of Firelake Designs decided they could contribute to the relief effort in their own way.
“My employees wanted to do something to make a difference during this desperate time of need. They approached me with the idea and I loved it. Darek Johns, my graphic artist, put the design together and we started printing.”
FireLake Designs received orders from around the globe after word spread of their effort at aiding local storm victims. The effort raised $6,290, a total that was split between the Red Cross and a fund established by the Citizen Potawatomi Nation to assist tribal members affected by the storms.
“It was truly uplifting to see people ordering t-shirts from all over the world to help out our fellow Oklahomans,” said Meade.
