One of of my good friends recently started Chi Rho Clothing, a non-profit Christian clothing line that focuses on combatting human trafficking in Nepal. Chi Rho Clothing is partnered with the Red Thread Movement, which seeks to not only rescue girls but also provide safe houses to keep them out of slavery. All proceeds go to helping the girls, so I of course bought a shirt! I love the simplicity of the Chi Rho symbol (read about it here) but decided to add my own twist to the shirt.
(Word of advice, Michael’s nor Hobby Lobby carry studs… fools… so I went to Joann’s and found these still attached to the leather, which I like better anyway!)
I went for a military inspired look. Here’s a better photo of the finished product! I might end up adding more safety pins to the front! What do you think?
It’s a little difficult to put on, what with chains dangling all over the place, but I love wearing it! When people stop me to ask about it, I can tell them all about Chi Rho’s cause. With the social media awareness v.s. action debate going on, it is refreshing to be able to help in a concrete way. And plus, don’t they look cool?
