Red Raider Outfitter is pressing its support for those affected by the Boston Marathon tragedy. The retail shop unveiled its 'Texans for Boston Tee.'

One-hundred percent of all proceeds will go to the Salvation Army of Boston and Lubbock. The t-shirt features a shamrock and says 'Red, White, and Blue Run Together Texans for Boston.'

Steven Spiegelberg Brand Manager said, Salvation Army is also there to counsel first responders, and you know those folks that rushed into help," he said. "We thought it was also important to take care of them as well." We thought the shamrock was an icon of Boston, and we thought the American flag was important. We tried to place the State of Texas on the shirt, to make sure they knew where it was coming from."

Spiegelberg said the store will be sending about 36 units to Boston. 

You can purchase your tee by pre-ordering, or they'll be in stock in stores by Friday.
