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:

    Oturu scores 30 as Minnesota beats No. 19 Michigan 75-67

    Sep 28, 2020

    MINNEAPOLIS — Daniel Oturu shook off an injury and had a career game to help Minnesota take down another ranked opponent. Oturu scored a career-high 30 points and the Gophers went on a late 11-0 run to beat No. 19 Michigan 75-67 on Sunday. The sophomore center had 20 points in a dominant first half, and he continued his roll with six quick points after the break. But with 14:35 remaining, he hit the deck hard while fighting for a rebound. He stayed on the floor for nearly five minutes, clutching his left shoulder as a hush fell over the...

    Bey scores 33, leads No. 16 Villanova past Georgetown 80-66

    Sep 28, 2020

    PHILADELPHIA — Saddiq Bey hit eight 3-pointers and scored a career-high 33 points to lead No. 16 Villanova to an 80-66 win over Georgetown on Saturday. Bey, a 6-foot-8 sophomore forward, hadn't been much of a 3-pointer shooter this season for the Wildcats (12-3, 3-1 Big East). He'd made only 21 and four of those came in a nonconference game against Ohio. He shot just 3-for-10 overall in a win this week at Creighton, hardly a sign he was about to bust out with a career game against the Hoyas (11-6, 1-3). Left open, and determined to shoot, Bey had...

    Former UConn coach Jim Calhoun earns 900th career win

    Sep 28, 2020

    WEST HARTFORD, Conn. — Jim Calhoun’s 900th win looked like so many others during a Hall of Fame coaching career. He stomped. He screamed. He slammed objects. The only real difference is the sideline he now controls. The longtime Connecticut coach added another milestone Friday night when the University of Saint Joseph beat Pratt Institute 105-61. Now in his second season coaching in Division III, Calhoun joined Mike Krzyzewski, Jim Boeheim and Bob Knight — all former rivals and national champions at college basketball’s highest level — as the only coaches to coach at least 10 seasons in Division I...

    Sep 28, 2020

    SEATTLE — After a lackluster thud to begin Pac-12 Conference play, Washington rebounded with its biggest conference blowout in nearly a decade. Isaiah Stewart scored 18 points and grabbed 10 rebounds, Quade Green added 14 points and Washington rebounded from a loss to open conference play with a 72-40 romp over Southern California on Sunday night. Stewart was again dominant on the interior despite sitting the final 9 minutes of the first half with foul trouble. The freshman post was 6-of-12 shooting and had two of Washington’s 12 blocked shots. Fellow freshman Jaden McDaniels added 11 points despite an off...

Montrezl Harrell led the Clippers with 28 points, and Kawhi Leonard and Lou Williams added 24 points each. The team appeared out of sorts from the start without George. He sat out with left hamstring tightness and Los Angeles...
