Takashi Murakami x Supreme's Charitable T-Shirt Raised Over $1 Million USD for COVID-19 Relief

All proceeds benefit non-profit HELP USA.

UPDATE (May 4, 2020): Supreme and Takashi Murakami have raised over $1 million USD for coronavirus relief from sales of their collaborative box logo T-shirt.

Released last month, the shirt replaces the red background of Supreme’s signature box logo with a print of Murakami’s signature smiling flowers. All $1,052,040 USD in proceeds went to HELP USA, a non-profit founded by Governor Andrew Cuomo in 1986. The charity focuses on the issue of homelessness and is currently working to provide financial relief to struggling families in need of emergency shelter, rental assistance, cleaning supplies and technology for remote schooling.

Head to the HELP USA website to learn more about its COVID-19 relief initiative and donate.


ORIGINAL STORY (April 21, 2020): In light of the ongoing coronavirus crisis, Supreme has teamed up with Takashi Murakami to support youth and families facing homelessness during the pandemic. The duo has created a special COVID-19 relief box logo T-shirt that sports the Japanese artist’s original artwork, featuring his signature smiley sunflower graphics. Additionally, Murakami’s logo can be found at the back of the tee above the phrase “COVID-19 Relief Fund 2020.” As part of the initiative, 100 percent of the proceeds will go to HELP USA. Take a detailed look at the piece in the gallery above.

The Takashi Murakami x Supreme COVID-19 shirt retails for $60 USD and will only be available in the U.S. and Canada on April 24 via Supreme’s website. In case you missed it, don’t forget to check out the New York-based brand’s latest collaboration with My Bloody Valentine.
