Simply Shirts Launches Designer Line to Benefit MS Foundation
Denver, CO (PRWEB) July 1, 2009 -- The Multiple Sclerosis Foundation has a new ally in its fight against MS, the debilitating disease that afflicts over 2.5 million people the world over. Multiple sclerosis is the most common, progressive neurological condition striking young adults today. The ally is Simply Shirts which is launching a line of stylish, trendy and classy shirts for women and girls. 10% of the profits from the sale of each shirt is donated to the MS Foundation.
