Recycled 2012 campaign tee shirts have found a happy home in Kenya, thanks to the Knox County Romney Campaign of Tennessee. The Daily Caller reports that the group has outfitted some 200 children at the Orbit Village Project in Nairobi with leftover campaign swag:
Alexander Waters, the campaign director for the Knox County Romney Campaign, explained to The Daily Caller that his group decided to send the shirts to the school and refuge as Waters’ aunt, Cyndy Waters, runs the project and its American base is in Sevierville, Tenn.
“I mentioned to her that we had a lot of shirts and that we were wondering if they had a need for them and she said, ‘Yes, that would be great.’ So instead of putting them into a storage unit or something we were like, ‘We can generate some good out of these shirts,’” Waters said.
“I’ve been over there and a shirt can go a long way,” he added.
