Haiti and its people left an indelible mark on Matt Brightman and Martin Weiss. Now, they're trying to do something life-changing in return. The two McGill University students have started a business, Moral Fibers, that features the work of Haitian artists on unique, limited-run T-shirts sold online at their website (www.moralfibers.co).

"They make enough from the sale of one shirt to cover food costs for a month. It's a way to help change lives for the better. We just got so inspired by Haiti, its people and their resilience," said Brightman, 20, who went to Haiti for the first time as a volunteer in the wake of the devastating earthquake that killed more than 300,000 people in January 2010.
