Social enterprise notjust have created a new range of charitable t-shirts, featuring topical imagery and simple messages of kindness to inspire the nation to stay indoors and think of others during the Coronavirus pandemic. £5 from every sale will be donated to the Trussell Trust, a nationwide network of food banks providing emergency food and support to society’s most vulnerable.
The collection features an iconic design updated to read ‘Isolate, Just Do It’ as a reminder to the general public that staying indoors will save lives. A new found hero of the crisis, hand sanitizer also takes its place in the new line. The beloved anti-bacterial gel has been refreshed with a message to ‘Spread Love’, encouraging people to act with kindness, thoughtfulness and cleanliness during these uncertain times.
Alfred Eisenstaedt’s famous romantic photograph ‘The Kiss’, also stars in the new collection providing a hopeful symbol that we will eventually be back in the streets together. The tee depicts the famous scene in which a sailor embraces with a nurse at the end of the Second World War, and has been revamped to include surgical face masks, as a sign of vigilance and a reminder to continue to take all necessary precautions.
£5 from every sale will be donated to the Trussell Trust, a nationwide network of over 1,200 food banks who provide emergency food and support to people living in poverty, and campaign for change to end the need for food banks in the UK. Right now the need for supplies is greater than ever as volunteers will be continuing to work tirelessly where possible to continue providing support to people unable to afford the essentials. Notjust are also encouraging anyone who wishes to make direct donations to the Trussell Trust to do so here and anyone who can, to volunteer here.
Andy Will, co-founder at notjust, said: “In these unprecedented times we are all feeling a collective sense of uncertainty and fear, as we tackle a global issue on a scale that very few of us have lived through. But in these tough times we’re also seeing an inspiring mood of defiance and unity sweep across the world from the balconies of Italy to the letterboxes of Britain. We’ve made this collection of charitable t-shirts to play our small part in this global challenge, by reminding people to spread love, be kind and stay indoors while also raising money to help those who are most vulnerable during the crisis.
“Like many other small businesses, we have been impacted by this virus. As well as donating to the Trussell Trust, the proceeds from these t-shirts will support our small team and the UK manufacturers that we use. We encourage our customers to donate to the cause in any way they want whether through buying one of our t-shirts or through direct donations, just remember to isolate, stay safe and be kind.”
The unisex t-shirts cost £19.99 with free delivery and £5 from every sale donated to the Trussell Trust. Each t-shirt is produced domestically in the UK and made on demand to keep waste and emissions to a minimum. Grab yours at www.notjustclothing.co.uk
