Muze Clothing has announced a partnership with New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez to support the New York Police & Fire Widows’ & Children’s Benefit Fund and the FDNY Foundation with an officially licensed, limited-edition T-shirt, featuring the line, “You Go, We Go.” Taken from the seminal firefighting film Backdraft, the vintage design pays homage to the first leather shoe bucket brigade, featuring Mark Sanchez’s #6 (the number on his Jets jersey, and also the number of his father’s fire station and fire truck).
“My father is a firefighter, so making a difference for widowed families of rescue workers and first responders is important to me,” noted Mark Sanchez. “I’m proud to partner with Muze on this shirt, donating all proceeds to the New York Police and Widow’s and Children’s Benefit Fund and the FDNY Foundation.”
Mark’s father, Nick Sanchez, is a 34-year veteran firefighter and part of the Orange County Fire Authority and Federal Emergency Management Agency task force. In 2005, the unit was deployed to the Gulf Coast after Hurricane Katrina struck. Nick’s leadership has helped shape Mark’s life and has served as an indelible inspiration to his career.
“The FDNY Foundation is extremely grateful to the Muze Clothing and the entire Sanchez family for their continued support of the New York City Fire Department.” said Jean O’Shea, Executive Director for the FDNY Foundation. “This will be a great help in funding FDNY education and training needs.”
100% of the proceeds from sales of the T-Shirt, which is priced at $29, will benefit the FDNY Foundation and the New York Police & Fire Widows’ & Children’s Benefit Fund.
The Benefit Fund provides assistance to the families of New York City Police Officers, Fire Fighters, Port Authority Police and EMS Personnel who have been killed in the line of duty. The Benefit Fund provides immediate financial assistance to each widow or widower after the loss of a loved one as well as annual financial distributions to help ease long term financial difficulties. With minimal overhead the charity has been able to make a meaningful difference for more than 26 years. For more information visit www.answerthecall.org
The FDNY Foundation is the official not-for-profit organization of the FDNY established to promote Fire Safety in New York City and fund professional development, training, and education programs for members of the FDNY. Learn more at FDNYFoundation.org

Muze Clothing is a lifestyle brand born out of an appreciation for classic movie quotes. A great movie line is the perfect means of personal expression, as is a great T-shirt, and the company has built a reputation for designer clothing with compelling graphics. Driven by a philanthropy-based business model with the belief that ‘to wear is human; to give, divine,’ Muze has partnered with several celebrity icons to leverage the power of the brand and empower consumers to make a philanthropic impact. Muze does not profit from the sale of these shirts, as all proceeds are donated to the celebrity’s preferred cause.
