Bayou Strong - Houma FundraiserRegular price Sale price $30.00 Save $0.00
It’s November and we are giving back all month to the Bayou Strong - Houma Fundraiser. A portion of the proceed from these exclusive shirts benefit Lache Pas La Patate! Better Than Ezra Foundation X Hache Grant Association.
To help those still very much feeling the effects of Hurricane Ida in the Bayou Parishes of Southeast Louisiana, the Hache Grant Association and the Better Than Ezra Foundation have teamed up to raise funds for relief with this t-shirt designed by Burt Durand to say one thing to the people who are all going through this hard time: “Lache pas la patate,” or, “Don’t drop the potato.” It’s a cajun saying for “never give up”. Relief donations (monetary and in-kind) are being collected to aid in Hurricane Ida recovery, with $10 from every one of these shirts sold going to the same.The purpose of the Hache Grant Association, Inc. is to facilitate specific, measurable and actionable initiatives to improve the quality of life in Terrebonne Parish. Right now, those initiatives are of the most basic and fundamental to survival, safety and humble comfort.
After Hurricane Ida devastated our area, the HGA pivoted to collecting donations, opening up a free grocery and supply pantry in downtown Houma, and delivering needs to distribution sites in the bayou communities.
From there, they have since mobilized a laundry, shower, and Air-conditioned trailer for the community of Pointe Aux Chênes in Southern Terrebonne Parish, all free to the public.
HGA President, Noah Lirette, summed up their mission in these words: “Bloody but unbowed – This speaks to who we are as Cajuns…We are uniquely built to overcome, and our strength to do so lies in one another. Trust in and take care of your neighbor during these trying times. This will certainly not be the end of our story. Our hearts are full, eyes are clear, and hands are steadfast in resolve.
They are unisex, Navy. This is a fundraiser, please allow 2-3 weeks for delivery, we hope it won't take that long but we will keep you updated on your purchases all along the way.
