Von Dutch Originals and the humanitarian relief agency Operation USA have joined in partnership to create awareness and financial support for the victims of Cyclone Nargis in Myanmar (Burma).

As the reality of the devastation resulting from the powerful cyclone that hit the Irwaddy Delta in Myanmar last weekend is starting to come to light, some officials are estimating that the death toll may exceed 100,000. The problem of getting relief to the people of this isolated country is becoming more and more urgent.

Von Dutch Originals and Operation USA, raised more than $100,000 of relief funds in response to the deadly Tsunami of 2004, have announced the creation of an exclusive, fund-raising t-shirt, with funds going directly to the growing relief effort.

"The news coming out of Myanmar of the extent of the damage and human suffering caused by Cyclone Nargis is deeply saddening," says Von Dutch Originals founder and CEO Tonny Sorensen, "and making a contribution through selling cause based apparel is a way that we as a fashion company can offer some measure of help."
