Team Zubair T-shirt
Zubair Babakarkhail is an excellent storyteller, great dad, overall funny guy, and an Afghan reporter who fled his homeland when the Taliban took over. Postindustrial is helping the family resettle in the U.S.
A group of friends, including those at Postindustrial, worked in nonstop shifts trying to make arrangements for him to get out, communicating with people around the world via WhatsApp.
We dubbed our effort: “Team Zubair.” Our team name is an homage to “Team Zissou” from the 2004 “The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou,” written by Wes Anderson. We had a wacky idea to turn our effort into a T-shirt.
A big thanks to CommonWealth Press owner Dan Rugh who designed this awesome T-shirt.
All proceeds from the shirts go towards Zubair and his family’s resettlement.
