For many, art serves as an inspiration. And there is nothing more inspiring than fusing the worlds of art and charity into a collective force to help cultivate change. Karmaloop and MTV’s Staying Alive Foundation are joining forces to help raise awareness of HIV/AIDS prevention and education to help fund and empower young people across the globe working on fighting the epidemic.
Live on the site today, show your support in the fight against the HIV/AIDS epidemic with The Staying Alive Foundation Tee, designed exclusively for Karmaloop by none other than Obey‘s Shepard Fairey. Click the images above for a closer look at the Karmaloop x Shepard Fairey x SAF collaborative tee, and check out our latest contest - we wants you to empower yourself and your community through the power of design. Submit a t-shirt grapic that depicts what it means to break the stigma, educate your community and empower your peers!
The grand prize winner will receive $5,000, plus, a free Staying Alive Foundation Tee signed by Shepard himself. To top it off, the winning design will be produced and sold exclusively at Karmaloop! Click here for more information.
About the Staying Alive Foundation
As a global grant-making organization, the Foundation’s mission is to encourage, energize, and empower young people who are involved in HIV/AIDS awareness, education and prevention campaigns.
The Foundation does this by presenting the Staying Alive Awards to young individuals and youth groups who are focused on stopping the spread of HIV and who have demonstrated the potential to become future leaders. The award comes with a financial grant to assist them in continuing and expanding their work, and provides public recognition to inspire others to get involved. The Foundation is registered as a 501-C 3 non-profit organization and ID number is 20-0957052.
