Be a biographer: tell a sex trade survivor's story through design

Be a biographer

This is cool.  The Blind Project helps women who have escaped the sex trade in Southeast Asia by selling t-shirts with designs inspired by survivor stories, and funnels profits back to the women involved. 

Be a biographer initiative, open through September 15. 

According to a press-release, the t-shirts, with designs submitted via Be a biographer, are made by women who have been rescued from the commercial sex trade.  Proceeds go to the women, "creating a virtuous sustainable cycle", according to the organisation. 

A nice chance to contribute something for a good cause.
