The Salvation Army is one of those honorable organizations that is well known simply for doing good things for good people.
The Salvation Army was recently named by the United Nations as the “lead agency” responsible for well-being of an estimated 20,000 earthquake survivors. The organization will continue to serve those survivors while coordinating with other agencies and planning its long-term recovery for the country.
It’s likely that there is a Salvation Army in your neighborhood, providing a helping hand to those that need it the most. The Salvation Army thrift stores have been a long time hot spot for money pinchers and hipsters alike, looking for unique pieces to add to their wardrobe for cheap.
Now, the Army is taking things a step further. They have hooked up with artist James White to create a one-of-a-kind apparel company with the aim of helping the less fortunate. 100% of the proceeds from each shirt sold from the Wardobe Army Apparel line will go to helping a specific cause. Such cause included the Pakistan and Haiti relief efforts, as well as with helping specific neighborhoods like the Downtown Eastside of Vancouver, B.C.
Each shirt is priced at $20 and is available now from Wardrobe Army Apparel by The Salvation Army.
