Oh we do so love a bit of collaboration action here at KSJ. And never more so than when it’s for a great cause. Sorry to put a dampener on your stylish Xmas preparations, but do you know that with poverty levels rising, many children will wake up without ANY presents to look forward to on Christmas Day and many admit that they won’t even have a hot meal. For these kids – Christmas Day will be just like any other Thursday. Watch this…
Can you bear it??? So let’s do something about it. The genius designer Katharine Hamnett famous for her political fashion statements (Choose Life, Preserve the Rainforests etc etc) has designed a capsule collection of T-shirts in support of the brilliant charity Kids Company, to help raise some much needed funds.
Kids Company intensively supports 36,000 vulnerable kids across London, Liverpool and Bristol, giving them consistent, long term loving care that meets their practical, emotional and educational needs. Now I do not have the first clue how to pronounce the surname of founder Camilla Batmanghelidjh – but that woman is a modern day SAINT.
Experience has taught Kids Company that kids who endure abuse, neglect and trauma cope with their pain by shutting down their capacity to feel. Katharine Hamnett’s collection for the charity features carefully chosen slogans to reflect its key messages which are actually never more appropriate than at Christmas – the time of giving.
The hot pink kids T-shirt with the word ‘GENIUS’ sends the message that we are all born with the potential to be geniuses – regardless of where we have come from. The bold blue option (above) with the ‘PEACE’ slogan highlights domestic violence in the home.
The adults one is available in grey or black with the word LOVE. Well that word needs no explanation. It’s what every child needs to survive.
So people, stylish tees that help a great cause? Win win. Available at Katharine Hamnett now £18 with £3 from each kids tee sold going directly to the charity. The adult ones are £30 with £5 going to the charity. Give the gift of giving this Xmas and get busy NOW!
