Bring your most powerful inspirational designs to our submissions page (and your fan base to the voting page).The first t-shirt for this project is on sale now.
p.s. Here’s a sneak-peek at one of the t-shirt designs.
We’re so excited about this project and we can’t wait for you all to get involved.
The recent quakes and tsunamis in Japan have caused widespread destruction. The devastation has left thousands of survivors homeless and citizens world-wide wondering “how can I help”?
Over the course of the next two months we will be engaging in an effort we’re calling “1,000 Prayers for Japan”. We will be selling 1,000 t-shirts (or “prayers”) with 100% of the proceeds going to 2 charities; Nagagutsu.org, to provide gloves and boots to recovery workers and UKC Japan, to provide rescue and care to the many abandoned and orphaned animals affected.
Five t-shirt designs will be featured. Three will be designed by artist recruited by our partner in this project and two will be the result of projects held within the ever-expanding Love and Water community. We ask for everyone’s help and support for this special project. Please tell everyone and anyone you know, submit designs, vote for designs and buy a t-shirt or four to spread the word about 1,000 Prayers for Japan and Wearable Philanthropy.
More information and an official project page will be up on Monday so stay tuned for news and updates about this inspiring new project!
Backpack Farm is working to build sustainable communities for reasons that go much deeper than many of us are aware of. Sustainable communities are pertinent to building better lives for those in need, but they also bypass the often impossibly corrupt systems that are in place to hinder the process of creating better lives for those in need.
