Faircloth Supply is a charitable clothing line created by Phoebe Dahl (who happens to be the granddaughter of my favorite childhood author, Roald Dahl*). The line specializes in effortless basics with a focus on linen and heritage textiles. For each item sold, Faircloth Supply donates one school uniform to a girl in Nepal.
‘For a young girl in Nepal, the benefits of education are for more than just academic. Girls who receive education are less vulnerable to HIV infection, human trafficking and other forms of social & economic exploitation. They’re more likely to marry later & raise children who will attend school themselves, and go on to contribute positively to their family’s economic well-being.’ (fairclothsupply.com)
On April 25, shortly after the Faircloth team returned from a trip to visit schools and distribute uniforms, a devastating 7.8-magnitude earthquake struck Nepal near Kathmandu, also affecting nearby parts of India. A few days later another earthquake struck again, leaving Nepal in total devastation.
These earthquakes destroyed entire communities, leaving hundreds of thousands of Nepalese people homeless. The nightmare continues with the arrival of monsoon season and the threat of landslides.
Faircloth Supply will donate 100% of proceeds of this Nepal Earthquake Relief Tee to help these communities. I happily ordered one for myself!
Sidebar: If you somehow missed the treasure that is Roald Dahl’s writing in your youth, his stories are just as lovely to read as an adult! They’re all wonderful, but Matilda and The Witches are my favorite; I still go back to my childhood copies to re-read them every few years.
