By Jarrod Jones. Good causes have a tendency to bring together pretty great people, and for the duration of May, Mental Health Awareness Month will unite Valiant and Threadless in a common purpose.
Valiant and Threadless have kicked off their first charity-focused collaboration with a selection of limited-edition t-shirts, which feature none other than Valiant’s most optimistic superhero, Faith. Proceeds go straight to Hope for the Day, a renowned mental health education and suicide prevention organization.
“Myself and many of us at Threadless and our community have family/friends who struggle with mental health issues. We are proud to support an organization working hard to help others deal with these issues and show they are not alone,” Lance Curran, Artist Shops Account Director for Threadless, said in a press release.
That’s a sentiment shared by Jonny Boucher, Founder & CEO of Hope for the Day, “It is an honor to work with so many talented people and friends from Threadless and Valiant on this project during Mental Health Month,” Boucher said. “It is truly amazing to see the impact we can make and what we can accomplish as a community that refuses to stay silent about mental health.”
This May marks the 68th Mental Health Awareness Month, so Valiant and Threadless have put together something special: the Hope for the Day special edition shirt features Faith as rendered by Kevin Wada, a reproduction of the cover to Valiant’s Faith #1, written by Jody Houser with art by Pere Pérez and Marguerite Sauvage.
Make sure to order your own shirt at Threadless’s Hope For The Day Artist Shop any time between now and May 31. (And yes, it’s available in men’s, women’s, and children’s styles and sizes.)
What’s more, the Threadless Shop also has new, limited-edition contributions from popular Chicago radio station b96, world-renowned artist Derek Hess, and mental health advocate and illustrator Sow Ay.
