Hurricane Harvey is wreaking havoc on the “Fixer Upper” stars’ home state of Texas, and they are stepping up to raise money towards relief efforts for the tens of thousands of flood victims.
Chip and Joanna Gaines are using a t-shirt described as a “fan favorite” to bring in donations.
The couple, who call Waco, Texas, home, is donating 100 percent of the proceeds from their “Texas Forever” t-shirt from now until the end of September:

The Texas t-shirts are being sold on the Magnolia website for $26.
Not surprisingly, people jumped at the chance to snap up the t-shirts to help the people suffering from the storm.
Joanna posted a follow-up announcement on Instagram, thanking fans for buying them and asking for their patience as they work to get the huge amount of orders out as quickly as possible:
Last night we announced that 100% of the proceeds from @magnolia’s Texas Forever shirts that are purchased between now and September 30th will be donated to Hurricane Harvey relief efforts. There has already been an overwhelming response and we couldn’t be more thankful. Please be patient with us as we are working to get each and every shirt out as quickly as possible! Thank you all for jumping in – there’s just something special about coming together to help neighbors in need
