Movementee: organisation with one Sole Hope

Movementee are a design company who partner up with different charities every fortnight in a bid to raise money for their particular causes. They do this by designing a unique print for each new charity that they support, which is then sold to you guys on their website in the form of a limited edition t-shirt or an art print that’ll spruce up any bare wall syndrome in your pad. For each purchase made, Movementee donate $8 to the featured charity, and you get a quirky print that can no longer be found anywhere on the planet after just 2 weeks of it going on sale. When it is gone forever (after the visible live countdown runs out), another design for another charity is then posted on the site, and thus the cycle of kindness continues to flow.

You can check out the current design on sale @ http://www.movementee.org/ with a new one to follow each fortnight. Can’t quite contain my excitement for seeing the next design! Really good concept – masked crusaders at Movementee whoever you may be!

Hurry up though guys and dolls, because as they say, when it’s gone, it’s GONE, and it ain’t coming back.

This lady explains it quite eloquently:

The print currently on sale is actually really well done, and certainly one for the graphics cool cats out there. There are 2 lovely colourways available (I personally find the grey & blue one a real treat), and the option of a round neck or a cheeky v-neck (all t-shirts are unisex). The featured charity that this t-shirt is in aid of is ‘Sole Hope’ who are on a commendable mission to put a pair of closed toed shoes on every African child – so that they are no longer troubled by the horrific parasite called ‘jiggers’ – take a look at the video below to find out more details:

But the guys at Sole Hope soon realised that they could also help African men and women, not just children, by teaching them the trade of how to make their own shoes. This way, they can make pairs for themselves and their families, but also to sell in order to make a living. They are not only doing this in the vast lands of Africa, but also in their home ground of the U.S – teaching the homeless, unemployed, recovering addicts, and non-profits how to use the skill of shoe-making to create a living for themselves, and also raise funds for their own causes. Amazing.

You can buy many different pairs of shoes in all shapes and sizes and support this worthy cause @ http://solehope.wazala.com/

Looks like you got two great finds for the price of one today!

HAPPY shopping. Not that shopping would ever be anything but HAPPY.
