, a humanitarian-based fashion brand, has collaborated with Bulldog Drummond
, an innovation and design company, on an eight-piece T-shirt collection to raise money to help fund World Vision’s efforts in Japan. Each T-shirt is priced at $20, with $15 of each sale being donated to World Vision
“World Vision is already the beneficiary of our Spring and Summer 2011 collections,” explains Kevin Murray, CEO of Jedidiah. “We have been so impressed by their work in Japan over the past week and wanted to use our resources to be a part of their efforts.”
“World Vision and Jedidiah are both partners of Bulldog Drummond,” says Shawn Parr, The Guvner and CEO of Bulldog Drummond. “We're honored to have the opportunity to use our design thinking, partnerships and channels of communication to raise additional dollars that will aid in the restoration and repair of Japan.”
World Vision has deployed an assessment team to northern Japan from Tokyo led by a Japanese emergency response manager with experience in Haiti, Pakistan, Myanmar and the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami. This team reached the city of Sendai within 48 hours of the devastating quake and Fukushima on Tuesday, and is coordinating with local government officials and partner organizations to determine how to start relief operations to support children and their families. World Vision has appealed for $10 million globally for its Japan response.
The organization is providing blankets, bottled water, and other life essentials to the communities most affected by this disaster. In addition, as conditions stabilize in the area, World vision will begin to provide “Child-Friendly Spaces
” that offer psycho-social support for children affected by disasters, and allows them to resume normal childhood activities and experience structure and security that are often lost during emergency situations. The collection is available at www.Jedidiahusa.com and in select retailers.About Jedidiah-- Made For Good
