Of RAGS

March 31, 2010

So I spent a very intense weekend at Columbia University, covering the African Economic Forum…go ahead an laugh! It was such an inspiring event, and I felt like everyone in the room was about to run home and purchase one way tickets back home. Yeah, it was that good. Other than meeting a ton of great people, I ran into James Branson who introduced me to Of Rags. Check out the hoodie above you know you wants in. Below is more info on the fair-trade company. Fashion for a cause…me likey!

Two young designers, RAAM, a Ghanaian, and J. Branson, an American,
founded Of Rags in 2009 with the idea of making clothing that makes a difference.

Not only is each item from Of Rags a unique work of art handmade in fair trade conditions; in addition, 40% of the profits benefit The Of Rags Foundation, a non-profit organization and tool for the sustainable development of public health and education initiatives.
The Foundation is currently partnered with a school for children with special educational needs in Accra, Ghana in order to establish a much needed scholarship program.

Of Rags is the product of globalization.
Of Rags aims to globalize the localized. Of Rags’ clothing is art.
Of Rags’ mission is hope. But most of all, Of Rags is what you make of it.

January 26, 2010

I just started guest blogging for MTV’s Staying Alive Campaign, which focuses on HIV-prevention among young adults. Its currently the largest youth focused campaign, and I’m honored to be able to contribute to the program.

Here’s my first post.

SECTA x F.L.O.H. x CutDrop

January 20, 2010

Depending on how long we’ve been acquainted, you may know that one of my self-appointed jobs is trying to save the world. On my road to accomplishing this magnanimous task, I have run into various people who’s efforts to do the same, continue to inspire me. One of these people is founder of For The Love of Humanity, Juliette Joseph.

In her latest efforts to make a contribution to Haiti’s crisis, Ms. Joseph has teamed up with fashion house, Secta, to provide relief to Haiti. Secta has drastically reduced prices on their collection sold on Cutdrop.com, and will be giving 5% of proceeds to FLOH’s cause=Haiti, which Cutdrop.com will then match. Make sense?

So that’s buy anything Secta on the Cut Drop site and 5% goes to FLOH, which will give all of it Haiti. Capiche? Never was there a better reason to shop than this one.
