Lookbook: T-shirts with a purpse

If you are all about graphic t-shirts, looking vintage then these two t-shirts are for you, they also help increase awareness about important causes.

I’m feeling very slumpy this week, it has a lot to do with my life and that it’s that time of the month. I start to think of all the things I’ve not been doing. Plus, it seems it has increased to a level that is making me feel like CRAP, not only in myself but in blogging as well. If you have been following me on Instagram you might have noticed a slow down in posts and also a lot of #throwback. But, I’m hoping that this weekend finally getting to learn how to snowboard and also taking care of myself will get me over this slump mood. I think I just need to buy myself something pretty–or have a night out.

Anyway, the whole life part is more personal but I also believe I am feeling down because of how women are being treated in society/government. The reason why I am bringing that up is one of my favorite things to buy are t-shirts or even hats (LOVE hats even though I don’t wear a lot of hats I love collecting hats) that go towards good. I have two t-shirts that are about supporting women and I have created everyday looks of how to wear them proudly.

The nasty gal t-shirt: I wore this shirt during the march. And it’s made by Google Ghost; inspired by the USA election and the phrase “Nasty Women,” they took the phrase and made it their own. They empowered those words for women. They have a really cool story in the about me page I recommend go reading. The shirt not only spreads a good message but they good to a great cause. The profits  from the sale are going towards women – 50% of the proceeds from these shirts go to Planned Parenthood. Planned Parenthood is a a non-profit that provides affordable health care, especially for women, and is under threat. It gives out  a lot like STD testing,sex education,and breast exams. So really this T-shirt is a triple threat with spreading the message of women, taking a stand and giving to planned parenthood which helps women!

My Sister.org: Now I didn’t know sex trafficking was happening so frequently in Minnesota, I was shocked!  Sex trafficking is selling/trading of women for sex. My Sister.org is a Minnesota based organization that not only is bringing awareness to sex trafficking but is putting action into stopping sex trafficking. Their mission statement, 68dea2ed-92f8-42c8-97f3-d5de75d7506btaken from their site: MY SISTER’s mission is to prevent sex trafficking, educate communities, empower the population, provide after-care for survivors and offer growth opportunities to at-risk women through the sales of our statement-making, ethically-sourced apparel and accessories. 
You can learn more about what they do, how you can help and also get educated on their site’s blog. I’m still learning more about this as well, but I got a t-shirt to share the awareness and to spread the message. Because it parallels my biggest movement of saying Women are not objects! We aren’t a body; we are human.

A lot of time organizations and groups want you to get involved, and that really is the best way to do it – devote your time and money to them. But, talking about your causes, spreading the message on twitter, sharing reliable sources, and wearing a t-shirts also helps. I don’t have a lot of time to volunteer, so being able to wear these t-shirts in my every day apparel helps put the message out there. I shouldn’t wear white but these t-shirts are on point.
