This morning after getting an email about The Fabric of Humanity I had to ask myself what’s the point of being a writer and reaching a broad audience without giving back to the community? I truly felt compelled to inform you all of this new way of fund raising and how you can help. The Fabric of Humanity has set out to change the way we view clothing by creating the wearable philanthropy concept. Currently it has 3 days left on it’s Kickstarter campaign and less than $1,000.00 to their goal.
What is wearable philanthropy?
The wearable philanthropy concept is the revolutionary way that The Fabric of Humanity is empowering not only the makers of their clothing, but their communities as well.
How does it work?
The Fabric of Humanity has specific contribution amounts listed on the price tag of each item so customers will know exactly how much of their purchase goes to helping various community projects. Customers will then vote on projects to watch their purchases translate to changed lives.
But the funding doesn’t stop there…
Contributions are added to a fund for a number of months, and The Fabric of Humanity will fund every project that they can afford with the money raised. This approach is a grassroots way to making a difference, as the projects come directly from the community. Fabric of Humanity is helping to write a new story for the people who are often the most affected by poverty—those working in the apparel industry.
