A T-shirt for a cause: Join Anthropologie and help fight HIV/AIDS

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

I wrote about this adorable T-shirt last month, but the Anthropologie on State still has plenty of them left, so I'm reposting: Anthropologie and designer brand Velvet are teaming up to support YouthAIDS. When you buy this limited-edition T-shirt (which you can't buy anywhere other than Anthropologie), 100 percent of the proceeds go to YouthAIDS. (I own a Velvet T-shirt, and I want to live in it. The designers Graham and Spencer use a very soft cotton/spandex mix fabric they call "gauzy whisper.")

This floral-printed, scoop-neck T-shirt with cap sleeves is $78 and is available in XS to XL at Anthropologie stores.

YouthAIDS is a non-profit organization that uses media, pop culture, music, theater and sports to stop the spread of HIV/AIDS and reach 600 million young people in more than 60 countries with life-saving messages, products and services. Both Anthropologie and Velvet were introduced to the organization by Ashley Judd, who has serve as the YouthAIDS global ambassador since 2002.
