Fashion Aid

I saw this over on Refinery29 this morning and thought it was awesome: Threadless, a t-shirt company and Justin & Christine Gignac, two artists, got together to create a line of shirts to benefit UNICEF and the work it does in Africa.  The price of each shirt is the price of the humanitarian aid item on it and 100% of procedes go directly to UNICEF. While the cargo plane for supply drops is going for $300,000, an insecticide-treated mosquito net is priced very reasonably at $18.57. Kind of more fun than trick-or-treating for UNICEF with those little orange boxes, isn't it? (I would always put mine at the bottom of my candy bag and forget about it until the end of the night.)
