The UN’s International Youth Day is coming up (12th August – put it in your diary), and in celebration of the acknowledgement of all the amazing things young people around the world do to help promote peace and sustainable human development, creative collective Young + Idle are releasing their Young World shirt. This limited run of only 100 shirts are unisex, printed on both sides, and made from 100% ring-spun combed cotton for a super soft, luxurious, lightweight shirt.
Young + Idle are always one to challenge to modern narrative that the young are lazy and disconnected through the engagement with humanitarian causes. For International Youth Day, they will be donating all the proceeds from the shirt sales to the Bhagvatinandji Education and Health Trust, in Gujarat, India. Providing education, nourishment and housing over four centres to orphaned children and children from one parent families, BEHT are making a difference to the lives of hundreds of children. So not only will you look good in Young + Idle’s shirt, you’ll also know that you’ve helped make a difference in someone’s life; it’s a win-win.
Young + Idle’s Young World shirt is available to pre-order now, and will be on sale on 12th August 2016.
