Texas native and country music artist Kacey Musgraves is raising money for a Dallas mutual Feed the People, and she’s dunking on Texas senator Ted Cruz in the process.

On Thursday evening, Musgraves debuted a brand new ringer tee in her online merch shop that reads “Cruzin for a Bruzin.” For those who haven’t been paying attention to the ongoing saga, the shirt is a reference to Texas senator Ted Cruz’s curious choice to jet off to Cancun for vacation this week while his constituents across the state were stuck without heat, power, and clean water. After originally blaming the trip on his own children, Cruz later apologized, calling the jaunt to Mexico a “mistake” in an interview with Houston news station ABC13.

Scope out the tee in all its glory below:

All profits from the sale of these t-shirts will benefit nonprofit organizations in Texas, including Feed the People Dallas, which has been working around the clock to get food to unhoused people in Dallas-Fort Worth since the storm began. As Eater reported previously, the organization has been assisting the residents of Camp Rhonda, an unhoused collective in Dallas, with finding warm hotel rooms and buying hot meals.

Musgraves also made a personal donation to the organization, according to her Twitter feed, along with other grassroots groups like Funky Town Fridge and Dallas Stops Evictions.

Proceeds from the sales of the shirt, priced at $29.99, will also help Austin’s Casa Marianella, and the American Red Cross of Central and South Texas assist people across the state with food and shelter. Those who want to snag one will need to act quickly — it’s likely that they’ll sell out soon, and they’re only available for purchase until February 21.
