SEE NYC Shirts Save Sight
DailyCandyNYC - NYC designer Stephen Kenney, inspired by a friend who suffered a stroke that left him temporarily blind, learned that most cases of blindness in Africa can be cured for $30. -- and 'See NYC' T-shirts were born.
The men and women's cotton tops are embossed with sayings like "Come Closer," "I Love New York," and "Brooklyn," only they don't say it with letters. They say it with fuzzy Braille circles. A clever, graphically lovely touch. (Pun intended.)
Profits raised are donated to charities that help the visually impaired, like Sight Savers International and Lions Club.
