On Friday, thousands of people will be wearing blue and white to show support for the Charleston victims and their families. The facebook event for “Blue and White Friday” says it was organized to show that the entire state is united.
In Simpsonville, Extreme Tees has been flooded with orders of blue and white t-shirts.
Bruce Johnson of Extreme Tees says he’s been busy trying to keep up with the demand.
“I’ve never experienced anything like this, my phone lines have melted down, my emails are full, got people lined up 15, 20 deep at the counter trying to order,” Johnson said.
The shirts are being sold at cost for just $5.00 – with donations going to Charleston to the families of the victims.
For “Blue and White Friday” you can wear any t-shirt with those colors or just display a South Carolina flag, tie blue and white ribbons on your car, or even make your Facebook profile picture a South Carolina flag or palmetto.
