About this store
The "Free The Hikers" t-shirt concept comes to us from Nate Lindstrom, brother-in-law to Shane Bauer, one of the three American hikers currently detained in Iran. Shane Bauer, Josh Fattal and Sarah Shourd have been held in Iran since July 31, 2009, when news reports say they accidentally crossed an unmarked border during a hiking trip in the mountains of Iraqi Kurdistan. They were in a peaceful region of Iraq that is increasingly popular with Western tourists. The three young Americans, all graduates of the University of California at Berkeley, have not been charged with any crime and have had no contact with their families. To learn more and receive updates on their situation, visit www.FreeTheHikers.org. Family and friends of the three hikers created the site to tell the story of Shane, Josh and Sarah and keep the world informed about their situation. All net proceeds of items sold here will go to support efforts by the families of Shane, Josh and Sarah. Your purchases will help defray daily costs, in the ongoing struggle to increase awareness, and get the hikers home to their families. Thank you for your support!
