“It takes a village to raise a child, but it takes the world to raise children.”
Former Miss Universe beauty, Deborah Henry couldn’t have said that quote better herself. If you’re not familiar with Fugeelah, we think it’s time you get to know them.
The Fugee school founded by Deborah herself is a non-profit social enterprise to provide a safe space for children to come together by exploring their passion through academic and creativity skills.
With goal in mind, she then expanded her motion to create Fugeelah; a curated assortment of lifestyle accessories designed and produced by refugee children and women from marginal Malaysian communities. And now they’re collaborating with a global brand like Uniqlo to create a range of special edition tees to raise funds for the refugee children!
As a collaborative project among students, five designs were chosen and will be sold on Uniqlo’s online store starting this Friday, 20th of July retailing at RM59.90. The best part? All proceeds will be contributed to Fugee School to continue its stand for education for the refugee children. Talk about fashion with a cause!
Of course, Deborah is beyond excited to see their designs come to life and is looking forward to seeing their t-shirts on the streets– and so are we.
Get your hands on them tomorrow and wear ’em loud & proud!
