H& M Launches T-Shirt Collection to Encourage US Voting
This week H&M is launching a new collection designed to encourage US citizens to get out and vote. The special limited collection of T-shirts goes on sale at H&M stores on Sept. 22, 2020. The “H&M Votes x Blanks Artist Collab” features a variety of artists from different communities around the USA. The bi-partisan artwork on the Tees is designed to encourage people to register to vote. As part of the campaign, H&M will make donations to the regional ACLU chapters of each participating artist’s hometown. How cool is that? 🙂 The T-shirts off colorful slogans like ‘Take it to the Polls” and “Your Vote Matters.”
The artwork also pays homage to the hometowns of the artists and highlights the importance H&M places on support of local communities around the country where its collaborators, customers and employees live and work.
Artists who participated in the collaboration include Baron Von Fancy and Sophia Chang of New York City, Sheila Rashid of Chicago, Gunner Stahl of Atlanta, Greg Mike, founder of ABV AGENCY + GALLERY, of Florida and Reality To Idea by Joshua Vides of Los Angeles. H&M is a brand that believes in people, and chose one of their own, employee and artist Trevonne Deveaux, as the seventh collaborator for the collection. The artist’s voter tees will be available for purchase online at HM.com and H&M locations in their respective hometown.
Let’s hope this collection encourages US citizens to take a stand this election year and vote–our future depends on it.
