Virgil Abloh Establishes "I Support Young Black Businesses" Fundraiser
100% of the proceeds from the Off-White™️ tee and hoodie will go to Chicago CRED.
Following his “Post Modern” scholarship fund for Black fashion students last month, Virgil Abloh has launched another initiative via Off-White™️ to aid young Black businesses amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Dubbed the “I Support Young Black Businesses” fundraiser, all proceeds from this project will be donated to Chicago CRED (Create Real Economic Destiny), an organization dedicated to reducing local gun violence.
Featuring a graphic tee and hoodie, the garments being sold as part of this fundraiser boast “I Support Young Black Businesses” in all caps on the front, while Off-White™️’s logo can be found on the back. This initiative will occur on a quarterly basis and will support a different organization, selected by Abloh and his team, each round.
Off-White™️’s “I Support Young Black Businesses” T-shirt is priced at $220 USD, while the hoodie retails for $440 USD. Both are now available to purchase via Farfetch’s website. You can also make a direct donation to Chicago CRED’s GoFundMe page.
