ReImagine the Charity Tee Shirt with Love146

Posted by in Everything Else on / 10 Comments

One of my favorite charities is doing something new and wonderful, and not only do I want to be a part of it, I hope you will want to be involved as well.

Love146 has partnered with Imagine Goods to radically change the way they produce and sell products that promote awareness of the incredibly tragic (and rapidly growing) issue of modern day slavery, to do so in an ethically sound way. Watch this quick video to get the whole story (or read this, if you’re not into video)…

Joining the movement to affect lasting change for trafficked and exploited children (and adults, for that matter) requires thoughtful action. This need doesn’t jive well with our instant gratification consumer mindset, and as a result, well-intentioned dollars can perpetuate the problem. It’s easy to get caught up in the moment and think, “Oh! That brand contributes to a cause I believe in!” and hand over our money, walking away feeling better about the world, only to have the brand donate a tiny amount of their profit to the cause in question, or manufacture their products under horrific working conditions using forced labor.

In this fight against injustice, it is important to know where your money is going, and where your products are coming from. I want my efforts to actually help someone, not just make me feel good about myself. I’m sure you feel the same.

I am thrilled to know that Love146 and Imagine Goods are doing everything they can to make sure that the people they help really are being helped, and that they are practicing ethical and sustainable business.

    I don’t even know where to start. I love this campaign, but I think this is a topic that is so under-reported that it is crucial to get the message out!

    1. Agreed, trafficking definitely needs more exposure, and more solutions put forth for people to help. I’ll be writing more about this issue in future, and offering ways for people to get involved. I hope you’ll stick around! 🙂

    I watched a documentary on Netflix recently about this subject. I didn’t realize how prevalent it still is in other countries, and even a bit here in the U.S.!

    1. I was shocked to find out how much of a problem sex trafficking – and human trafficking in general – are all over the world, but how big of a problem it is in the US floored me. How?!?!?! You really can’t look at your life or impact the same after finding out that millions of other people are living their lives as slaves.
