Ellie Boutique Sells Michael Stars’ T-Shirt to Help Mariska Hargitay’s Joyful Heart Foundation

The Ellie Boutique will start spreading the joy! Beginning this summer, the store will sell a limited-edition Michael Stars T-shirt, created in collaboration with actress Mariska Hargitay and her Joyful Heart Foundation, to raise funds for women and children who have been victims of domestic abuse. For every T-shirt purchased, Michael Stars will donate $5.00 to The Joyful Heart Foundation and give a T-shirt to a woman in need.

The Joyful Heart T-shirt campaign was launched earlier this year during a reception in Los Angeles attended by Hargitay, Jennifer Aniston, Hilary Swank, and Courtney Cox, among numerous other actresses. The Joyful Heart Foundation aims to heal, educate, and empower victims of sexual assault, domestic violence, and child abuse. More information is available at

The charity T-shirt, created by designer Michael Cohen of Michael Stars with Hargitay, features a metallic heart composed of empowering words inspired by the Joyful Heart mission. Each style comes in black or white. The shirts are 100% Supima cotton and made in the U.S.

With proceeds going to benefit women and children in need, the purchase is a heart-felt, stylish way to show support for survivors of sexual assault, domestic violence and child abuse – and for the Joyful Heart Foundation.

The Joyful Heart t-shirts are available, while supplies last, exclusively in Baltimore at the Ellie Boutique. The cost is $62 for a short-sleeved shirt; $64 for long-sleeved. For more information , please call the store at 410-823-8544, or visit online at
