Want to get into the Paralympics spirit using your love of fashion? Well, we have the perfect solution!
Teezilla has launched a fab new ‘Charity Takeover’ initiative, by teaming up with various charities to raise money and awareness for them in a fun and fashionable way.
If you want to get involved, all you have to do is submit a t-shirt design and ask your friends and family to vote for your creation on Facebook or Twitter. The design with the most votes will get made into a t-shirt, and the designer (that’s you!) gets £200 as well. Not too shabby!
This September, the chosen charity is Whizz-Kidz, which helps disabled young people get mobile and active by providing powered, manual and sports wheelchairs. They’ve even helped some of Team GB on their road to the Paralympics – including wheelchair racer Hannah Cockroft and women’s wheelchair basketball player Natasha Davies.
“We are very excited to team up with TeeZilla,” said Rob Dyson, a spokesperson from Whizz-Kidz. “We’re hoping to see some really creative designs that capture the action and thrill of disability sport, and the excitement of being mobile and independent.
“The money raised during the month-long campaign will also help us get more kids moving, by funding mobility equipment and fun training across the UK.”
£6 from every sale goes to the charity, so definitely a worthwhile cause. Click here to learn more about the charity take-over, and to see some of the existing competition entries.
