I’m back with the second post in my series AC(TEE)VISM – tee shirts with a cause! The first post focused on Reformation’s Action Tees, which featured funny sayings, cool graphics, and supported causes like Planned Parenthood, the ACLU and the Environmental Defense Fund. Each shirt was $50, but $30 from each shirt was donated to one of those causes. As much as I love Reformation and love their Action Tees, I was not down to spend $50 on a tee shirt. Everlane’s 100% Human collection still supports great causes in a stylish way, but at a much lower price point.
I bought one of Everlane’s pink 100% human collection tees a few weeks ago. $5 from any of the shirts in this collection goes directly to Equality Now, an “international human rights organization dedicated to action for the civil, political, economic and social rights of girls and women”. While I love the boldness of the white tee, and the whole idea of the human/woman tank, I went with the super light pink tee with the pocket. And because I just happened to be perusing Everlane’s website right as the Equality Now collection dropped, I got one of the pink 100% Human pins!
A new set of 100% Human Tees just dropped today in honor of Pride Month. $5 from each shirt sold is donated to the Human Rights Campaign, which is “America’s largest civil rights organization working to achieve lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer equality.” I not only love the rainbow font on these shirts, but I also love that the HRC logo, the equal sign, is printed on the back of most of the shirts in this collection. And like the other 100% Human collections, if you buy the first round of Everlane tees in this collection you’ll receive a limited edition 100% Human pin!
The original set of 100% Human Tees support the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and are still available on Everlane’s website. The goal of the ACLU is to “defend and preserve the individual rights and liberties guaranteed by the Constitution and laws of the United States.” The ACLU seems to be a popular organization right now (and for good reason) — one of Reformation’s tees supports the ACLU, ZEDD held a fundraising concert for the ACLU in Los Angeles in early April, and a #NoWALnutNoBANana Oatmeal breakfast gathering at my school raised money for the ACLU, too.
