Can Fashion Fight Poverty? {Rise Up International}

Looking for meaningful Christmas gifts for your family and friends?
Help children out of poverty by purchasing clothing from Rise Up International.

Rise Up is an innovative group of artists, idealists, and social entrepreneurs, who are using the fashion industry to help children out of poverty. By purchasing clothing from Rise Up International you are in effect giving two gifts. Your friends and family receive a quality, stylish shirt or sweater, and a child in a country you may never visit will receive sanctuary, education and a home.

Jesse and Seth Roberts are brothers who are the designers for Rise Up. Jesse is the founder of Rise Up International along with his wife Maria. Seth is the co-owner of a design company called the 805 Collective (my web designer). Together they form the creative design team for Rise Up Clothing.

Rise Up uses the proceeds from their clothing to help provide free education for over three hundred children in India, China, and Nicaragua with the goal of ending the exploitation of those children. With your purchase you provide safe homes, education, counseling, and empowerment projects.

To get involved all you have to do is purchase Christmas gifts for your friends & family. Buying a couple of t-shirts and a sweater will give children the chance to escape a life of poverty and they will experience a life of hope.

Visit the Rise Up website and online clothing store to purchase clothes today.

Here are some shots of a few of my favorite shirts. Joshua Caine came over to model and co-photograph these.
