As a Mississippi native, I've been heartsick about the crisis in the Gulf of Mexico. There are so many people and places that will be permanently changed because of this disaster.
I recently heard that Vineyard Vines, a favorite of southerners, is doing something to help out. Shep and Ian Murray started Vineyard Vines on Martha's Vineyard back in 1998. Being shore lovers, they treasure and celebrate that lifestyle and feel for their neighbors to the south. They derserve many thanks for stepping up and donating a portion of proceeds of a special tie to the Gulf Coast recovery effort.
