MILWAUKEE - Boston Strong isn't just a hashtag, but a heart felt show of support for the people of Boston and those injured in the twin bombings. Today's TMJ4's Melissa McCrady says it's a popular slogan right here in Milwaukee too.
Hot off the press, the Boston Strong logo appears on t-shirts selling rapidly online, to places all over the world, and those shirts are being printed in Milwaukee.
Todd Richheimer founded the company "Ink to the people" with his brother-inlaw Jay Berman.
They are Emerson College students who came up with the idea.
They said the goal was 110 shirts, and already, they've sold well over ten thousand.
Ink to the People donated the first 15-hundred shirts. The rest can be purchased for 20 dollars. The company is donating $15 from each t-shirt to the victims of the Boston bombings.
