Wyclef x Play Cloths x Haiti
The Clipse's clothing line, Play Cloths, has hooked up with singer/songwriter/producer Wyclef Jean (a native of Haiti) to create a "Haiti Relief Effort" tee with 100% of the profits heading to Yele - a relief effort organization to Jean supports. The tee features the traditional Jack logo carrying a Haitian flag.
To note: When I tried accessing the Yele website, it was unavailable so from a quick Google search I found that the first article questioned Yele's ability to handle such a large relief effort (some are saying that Yele has managed to raise as much as $11 million so far through $5 text messages donations). As of this point, I am not an expert on the situation but I felt that was important to post.
If nothing else, it's still a nice t-shirt. Available here
