Damar Hamlin's 'Did We Win?' T-shirts Benefit First Responders, UC Trauma Center
The whole sports world seemed to stop when Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin suffered from cardiac arrest during a game against the Cincinnati Bengals. The moment transcended sports, and people all over the world were waiting to see whether or not he would be OK.
When Hamlin woke up in the hospital, he was concerned about something else, asking a nurse, "Did we win?"
Hamlin, who has now been transferred to a hospital in Buffalo and is on the road to recovery, is showing his gratitude by creating a "Did We Win?" T-shirt with proceeds benefitting first responders and the University of Cincinnati's Trauma Center, where he received his care.
We all won 🏾.
I want to give back an ounce of the love y'all showed me. Proceeds of this shirt will go to first-responders and the UC Trauma Center.

Hamlin still has a long road ahead of him, but it's incredible to see him doing something like this after such a terrifying moment.
It goes to show the power of apparel, with a simple T-shirt like this creating such a strong message - one that the famous Bills Mafia will no doubt want to celebrate. After Hamlin's collapse, everyone was a Bills fan for a minute, so this T-shirt design will attract much more than Bills fans.
