The UN is now estimating that tens of thousands of people have perished from malnutrition in Somalia, and there still remains over 10 million people across East Africa that are in desperate need of food aid. Refugee camps are struggling to cope with the influx of arrivals fleeing daily.
Jake and I have both felt compelled to somehow contribute to those in need in Somalia. In my personal experience, I've struggled with not being able to financially help those in need in times of such horrific disasters (I experienced the same kind of guilt during Katrina). We firmly believe that we all have a responsibility to do what we can, whatever small means that may be, to help.
Until further notice, a portion of the proceeds of every item sold at www.reevolveclothing.com will be transferred to WorldVision Canada, where the Canadian Government will then match every dollar donated until September 16th. You can donate directly to WorldVision Canada here.
We are also working on a t-shirt design that we will contribute our full profit to WorldVision Canada.
We know how this community can pull together with a common goal. Let's do our best to help.
If you have any questions at all, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
