One Tenth - It's Time to Wear What Matters
What if a t-shirt could change the course of a family's future? Could provide opportunities for those who have not had them before?
Perth brand One Tenth hope to do just that, bring change, and yesterday they launched their Kickstarter campaign to make it a reality. With every t-shirt or tote bag bought, the company will give 10% of all profits to fund education for at risk communities and increase work opportunities for women who have been affected by human trafficking in India.
Founder Angel Robins believes that,
"[By] investing the profits into education, it is the most practical way to end the cycle of poverty. Our funds will go directly into paying the monthly school fees for the children of those working at Freeset (the collaborating garment factory in Kolkata , Sonagachi). This is a partnership, as the mother will be required to invest a small amount into the school fees."
The t-shirts are designed by local Australian artists, made with 100% organic cotton and every 10 sold will equal 1 child's monthly school fees. With your pledge you can contribute towards the future of a child's education.
I just made a pledge, make yours today.
