"We’re seeing in real time that we are so much more interconnected to one another than our quite brutal economic system would have us believe." - Naomi Klein
Indeed we are. We are all interconnected. Our actions, our lives, our sense of self are all in relation to the other.
We have been wondering what we could do to help, how we can continue to use our platform to keep supporting causes we care about.
To that end, we have decided to create a new t-shirt collection that will enable us, with your help, to donate to our artisans and to FareShare, a charity whose work is close to our hearts. Our idea is to send out a powerful and positive message that can keep us focused on the future. A message of hope and togetherness. Maybe our world won't be the same again, but we can try to build a better one.
Who we are supporting and why:
Our Artisans in Cambodia: All the proceeds from the t-shirts will be donated to them in an effort to provide them a lifeline while both us and them are in lockdown. They are currently leaving Phnom Penh and returning to their home towns as they have no work. As working becomes impossible we still want to provide them with an income that can help them go through this difficult time.
FareShare: The London We Are One t-shirt will support FareShare in their effort to redistribute surplus food to frontline charities and community groups and ensure that those most vulnerable are not put at increased risk of hunger. As the situation develops rapidly, they anticipate they could see increasing demand for their service and they are stepping up their operation so that nobody will fall through the gap.
FareShare work is important now more than ever and with your help we can make sure that all the 11,000 frontline charities and community groups can continue provide their services.
