COVID Survivor and Emmy Nominee Designs New Merchandise

Trevor Dow was motivated to design the line after battling COVID-19 and being in isolation for 3 weeks. Part of the proceeds of his line will be donated to Mental Health America.

LOS ANGELES - Sept. 16, 2020 - PRLog -- Daytime Emmy nominated Designer, Actor, Musician, Social Media Personality...Trevor Dow holds many titles. One of the most significant in 2020, though, is COVID-19 survivor.

While he was fortunate with only having mild physical symptoms, the emotional toll of three weeks of isolation had a lasting impact. He came forward and shared his journey in battling COVID-19 with his honest and raw COVID-EO Daily Log that tracked his progress following his positive diagnosis and is now using his platform to educate people about the mental health impacts of COVID-19…whether you've had a positive diagnosis or not.

"The vast and rapid change in every day life because of COVID-19 is impacting us all," Dow shared. "Even if you haven't had to deal with COVID-19 directly, we're all facing a lot of change and uncertainty which has a direct impact on our mental health."

Trevor designed this special collection with one goal in mind: to reflect the strength and resilience of everyone in the world who is working together during this pandemic by helping each other, staying positive and showing empathy whenever we can.

There are 4 themes that feature Trevor's seamless blend of compassion, humor and a touch of sarcasm:

  • COVID Conqueror: Two strong designs that declare the wearer is conquering COVID either through a positive diagnosis or by wearing a mask, social distancing and taking precautions.
  • COVIDIOT: Quite simply, a "Covidiot" is someone who isn't taking precautions to protect themselves and others from the virus. One design features a dictionary-style definition that Dow wrote and the other a text bubble that simply states "Don't Be a Covidiot".
  • Mask It or Casket: A spooky mask and shirt design just in time for Halloween!
  • Lead with Empathy: Dow's strongest message is one of empathy and compassion. His acronym "MEMA" stands for "Make Empathy Matter Again" and his personal slogan "Lead With Empathy" comes through in his upbeat personality and how he navigates the world.
  • "Kindness is so important and if we all are just nice and empathetic to one another, we can get through anything," Dow said.

    Dow's line is available now through his production partner, Our Virtual Holiday, who found Dow after his viral TikTok video about wearing a mask.

    "We have a fun character as part of our brand named the Mask Debater Hero who gives awards to people across the social media who advocate wearing a mask," owner of Our Virtual Holiday, James Brandon said. "We gave Trevor one of the awards and started talking to him about designing something special after hearing his story. He's a strong positive presence that we need in the world and we're excited to partner with him on this journey".

    20% of the profits of every purchase will be donated to Mental Health America, a nonprofit organization dedicated to addressing the needs of those living with mental illness and to promoting the overall mental health of all Americans.

    Trevor Dow's Exclusive Line is available now at on the Our Virtual Holiday website at:

    Soleimani, a general who became Iran icon by targeting US

    Sep 24, 2020

    TEHRAN, Iran — For Iranians whose icons since the Islamic Revolution have been stern-faced clergy, Maj. Gen. Qassem Soleimani widely represented a figure of national resilience in the face of four decades of U.S. pressure. For the U.S. and Israel, he was a shadowy figure in command of Iran's proxy forces, responsible for fighters in Syria backing President Bashar Assad and for the deaths of American troops in Iraq. Solemani survived the horror of Iran’s long war in the 1980s with Iraq to take control of the Revolutionary Guard’s elite Quds Force, responsible for the Islamic Republic’s foreign campaigns.

    Streep, Miranda and Stone are named as Met Gala co-0chairs

    Sep 24, 2020

    NEW YORK — Next year's Met Gala may be the closest we'll ever come to getting a Miranda Priestly moment at the starry event. Meryl Streep has been named as a co-chair of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute. The Oscar-winner played Priestly, a thinly veiled fictional version of Vogue editor Anna Wintour, in the movie "The Devil Wears Prada." Wintour clearly has no hard feelings because she selected Streep as a co-chair along with Lin-Manuel Miranda and fellow Oscar-winner Emma Stone. Designer Nicolas Ghesquiere rounds out the group. The gala's theme is "About Time: Fashion and Duration," which...

    New Sept. 11 exhibit stages the hunt for Osama bin Laden

    Sep 24, 2020

    NEW YORK — Declassified U.S. government documents and artifacts will be part of a new exhibit about the decade-long search for Osama bin Laden at the site of the New York terrorist attack he masterminded. "Revealed: The Hunt for Bin Laden" opens Nov. 15 at the National September 11 Memorial & Museum, a multimedia account of the mission that ended with bin Laden's death in Pakistan in 2011. With direct access to the operatives who led America's feverish post-9/11 hunt for the top terrorist, the exhibit presents a sort of whodunit drama with graphics, videos and the voices of the...

    China says US has 'weaponized' visas to target exchanges

    Sep 24, 2020

    BEIJING — China on Wednesday accused the U.S. of having "weaponized" the issuance of visas following the reported inability of a top Chinese space program official to obtain permission to travel to a key conference in Washington. Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying told reporters that the head of the Chinese delegation to the International Astronautical Congress wasn't able to obtain a visa following an Oct. 12 interview, making it difficult for Chinese representatives to attend important events at the meeting. Reports said the vice chairman of the China National Space Administration, Wu Yanhua, had planned to attend the congress. Hua...

    Cracks were found in a key structural part on 38 Boeing jets

    Sep 24, 2020

    Inspections of some older Boeing jets have turned up structural cracks in more than three dozen of them, raising a new safety issue for the company already dealing with two deadly crashes involving a newer version of the same plane. Boeing said Thursday that airlines worldwide have inspected 810 planes following an order from U.S. safety regulators. Of those, 38 — or 5% — had "findings" requiring repairs. Airlines are under orders to inspect certain Boeing 737 NG planes for cracking in a part that helps keep wings attached to the fuselage. Boeing declined to identify which airlines found problems,...
