Get Up, Stand Up, & Rise Up! Clothing That Can Make A Difference
Thanks goodness it has become cool to care! Clothing companies all over the country have invested time and money into creating brands that are both stylish and politically conscious. Rise Up! is one of these fabulous innovative groups trying to make a difference and inspire others. Made up of artists, idealists and social entrepreneurs, Rise Up! is using the fashion industry to help children out of poverty. They recently launched their first clothing line during the fall of 2006 and have been featured in retailers such as Urban Outfitters, Karmaloop and Michael K amongst many others across the country. Using the proceeds of their powerful clothing line they are helping to provide free education for over three hundred children in India and Nicaragua. Their international focus is also contributing to the elimination of the exploitation of children by providing them with safe homes, education, counseling, and empowerment projects. Can fashion fight poverty? The verdict is still out, but we can sure as hell try!

Rise Up! Clothing can be found online at Karma Loop and War Hurts.org
