New Michigan T-Shirts

These T-shirts were created by Lisa Burnia and Northville resident Terri O' Brien to help boost the morale of Michiganders, especially those effected by the auto industry meltdown. A percentage of the sales from the shirts will be donated to local charities that help unemployed auto workers with food, shelter and college fees.

"Maybe MichiCAN will mean I support Michigan businesses, or I can volunteer at the soup kitchen, or I can go back to school," Burnia says. "We wanted to be the first to say 'I CAN help' and we decided that our idea could help some of the laid off workers get a fresh start and stay right here in Michigan."

The shirts are available in both mens and womens sizes.
