April 24, 2020: The Supreme x Takashi Murakami t-shirt dropped at 11:00 AM EST and sold out within seconds.
April 24, 2020 update: According to @dropsbyjay, Supreme is making a total of 17,000 t-shirts, which is not a lot. If the shirt is priced at $60, that translates to just over a million dollars going to charity.
April 23, 2020 update: There’s a big debate over timing of the April 24th drop for the Supreme x Takashi Murakami COIVD-19 relief t-shirt. Some are speculating it will launch at the usual timing of 11:00 AM EST, but as of right now, Supreme hasn’t confirmed anything and it’s entirely possible it will randomly drop the t-shirt without warning as a way to thwart bots. The best sources for possible updates on timing of the drop are reddit.com/supreme and on Twitter, @dropsbyjay. May the cop gods be with you.

Supreme has confirmed plans for a Takashi Murakami box-logo t-shirt, an item created as part of a COVID-19 related fundraiser with all proceeds donated to Help USA, a New York-based non-profit organization focused on helping youth and families facing homelessness during the coronavirus crisis.
Priced at $60, the t-shirt will be available online in the United States and Canada only on April 24, 2020 on supremenewyork.com. As of now, Supreme hasn’t provided timing for the launch.
