"The East Coast was ripped apart by Hurricane Sandy," said Amir Loloi, CEO, Loloi. "And we want to help. By donating a percentage of our sales to the American Red Cross, we feel like we're putting money in the hands of those best suited to help New York, New Jersey and the other affected areas recover and rebuild."
