Did you know that J.Crew created limited edition “Garment for Good” t-shirt, which will help raise awareness for worthy causes?
Um -- neither did I!
According to J.Crew "Whenever possible, we like to use our creative resources to lend support, designing T-shirts and other items to sell in our stores and online with 100% of net proceeds going back to the charitable partner."
...and their most recent charitable partner is (drum roll please!) the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust.
The Trust rescues and protects orphaned elephants and rhinos in East Africa. Since the organization's work is so inspiring- and the elephant is the unofficial mascot of Crewcuts, J.Crew wanted to support the Trust’s effort with a special new t-shirt for crewcuts (J.Crew's fans- ages 0-16 years).
The elephant tee designed by Brooklyn-based illustrator Hugo Guinness is a perfect way to add some style to your wardrobe and show your support for an amazing cause as one hundred percent of the net proceeds from the sale of this tee will be donated back to the trust.
Other garments for Good partnerships have included Friends of the Highline, Teach for America, support for the Philippines and others.
The shirt is available in stores and online at www.jcrew.com for $29.50
