Luxury t-shirt launched to support local New York restaurants
Restaurants across America are closing at an accelerated rate due to COVID-19. According to a recent article from Eater New York, more than 1,000 restaurants have closed due to the closure of indoor restaurants due to the endless coronavirus pandemic.
Many restaurants sought financial refuge during the summer months, when alfresco dining was a huge hit among patrons who experienced midlife fatigue. However, due to climate changes associated with winter and the complete shutdown of indoor dining in places like New York City, fashion brand Morning News is working to help struggling homeowners with the Support your local restaurants T-shirt.
The idea is that more people wearing the T-shirt will encourage fellow Americans to order from local restaurants, which can help keep establishments open. In addition, a percentage of the proceeds will be donated to ROAR, which will distribute the funds to restaurateurs and employees. This month-long campaign aims to raise fifteen thousand dollars ($ 15,000) in the spirit of supporting communities in need.
When asked what triggered the need for this campaign, Morning News owner Meyer Tawil commented, “As a foodie, I eat out at least four times a week. It is extremely upsetting that many restaurants do not receive government funding, and I want to do whatever I can to help. “

Morning News was created by Meyer Tawil and his sister Flora Harari out of their mutual love of style, family and the ‘good life’. Influenced by nostalgia for the area, the brand says it will always inspire the relaxed vibe of neighborhood gatherings, reading the morning paper, having a coffee and a relaxed life.
