Our students are amazing:
Relief Print is a t-shirt screen-printing event and fundraising
initiative created and led by Gabriella Thompson, Sarah Kambara, and Marysol Stepanof, students at Ringling college of Art + Design in Sarasota, Florida. The purpose of Relief Print was to raise funds for
Hurricane Sandy victims on the East Coast. A college-wide act of volunteerism came together as student artists submitted designs for Relief Print. Resident Assistants and their residents volunteered to prepare the screens for printing, and helped out on the event day, Friday December 7th. A total of seven submitted designs were exhibited for faculty and students to choose from, to have printed on shirts in return for a donation. Designs were also available on bags,
buttons, and whatever items people brought to print on. The result of the event was phenomenal, with a total of $763.00 raised through Relief Print in the time span of only eight hours. These funds have been donated directly to those in highest need on the East Coast via a partnership with the Red Cross. Gabriella, Sarah and Marysol wish to continue hosting Relief Print events to raise funds for future disaster needs not only domestically, but also globally.
