SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 23 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Today, Gap unveiled the personalized, creative work of 70 everyday Americans, including Zeph Colombatto of Maui, Hawaii, showing off their "Vote for ____." t-shirts customized to express their passions this election season. Photographs of these 70 individuals and their fill-in-the-blank t-shirts will be featured in Gap store windows across the country through Election Day.
Gap recently launched its "Vote for" initiative [http://www.gap.com/votefor], featuring its classic white t-shirt that simply says, "Vote for _____." which serves as a platform for Americans to express themselves during this election season. Gap is encouraging Americans to fill in the blank with whatever word, expression or presidential candidate they are passionate about. T-shirts are available for purchase online at http://www.gap.com/votefor or in stores nationwide for $15 now through Election Day, while supplies last, so anyone can grab a tee and fill in the blank.
Earlier this summer, individuals customized their own t-shirts and participated in a professional photo shoot at Gap stores in Los Angeles and New York. Out of the more than 400 participants, Zeph Colombatto was selected to be featured in Gap's campaign based on the creativity and uniqueness he displayed in voicing his passions by filling in the blank.
