The Fashion Industry Helps the Philippines

By Alexis Galmin

tumblr_mw7m2irdMt1qzqwamo1_1280News of Typhoon Haiyan has been addressed daily on all news outlets since it hit the Philippines on Nov. 8. This is a very grim time as the Philippines, made up mostly of islands, recovers from the disastrous storm that left over 3 million people displaced, homeless and lost. In a recent effort to help the Philippines recover from the hard-hitting typhoon, members of the fashion industry have lent a hand.

Threadless released the non-profit sale of T-shirts printed with “The Sun Will Rise Again” by Dan Elijah G. Fajardo. 100 percent of the proceeds will be donated to Architecture for Humanity, the nonprofit design firm that is planning to help rebuild areas in the Philippines.

Designer, CFDA member and native Filipino Josie Natori is using her e-commerce website to mediate donations to charities on the ground back in her home country.slide-bg

The Archetype Showroom in New York City hosted a Waves for Water Disaster Relief sample sale this past week to benefit the victims of Typhoon Haiyan.

It is always great to see that there are people reaching out to help in a big way and the fashion industry has been stepping it up to make its contributions to those affected by the natural disaster.
