A special t-shirt, created to show the connection between Louisiana and Haiti, will help relief efforts in the devastated country. 

Health care professional, Tana Hebert, created the shirts with her brother to raise money to benefit the local organization BR2Haiti. The group provides an outlet for doctors and nurses to volunteer in Haiti and also ships supplies directly to the country.

Hebert said the shirts are a perfect way to become an active part in the relief effort.

"It gets the word out there and I hope it encourages other people to volunteer or to give back," said Hebert.

The shirts cost $20, with all profits going directly to Haiti. To order a shirt e-mail Tana Hebert: br2haititshirts@yahoo.com.
