UNIQLO Launches PEACE FOR ALL Charity T-shirt Project

Global apparel retailer UNIQLO today announces the launch of PEACE FOR ALL, an ongoing commitment to support peace efforts worldwide that uses UT (UNIQLO T-shirt) as the means for everyone to express their individuality. 

Conducted in collaboration with world-renowned leaders in the areas of art, design, literature, science and sport, PEACE FOR ALL aims to raise funds by selling T-shirts with designs expressing a desire for peace. UNIQLO parent company Fast Retailing Co., Ltd. will donate all profits from sales, no less than 20% of the sales price of each shirt, equally among three international organizations, UNHCR, Plan International, and Save the Children, that aid those affected by poverty, discrimination, violence, conflict and natural disasters.

“The UNHCR last month announced that the number of refugees worldwide exceeds 100 million. Clothes are vital to refugees, along with water, food, medicine and a place to sleep comfortably. UNIQLO ‘LifeWear’ is everyday clothes for daily lifestyles. Over the years we have engaged in a number of initiatives to assist refugees thanks to the support and cooperation of customers. 

UT PEACE FOR ALL is a new LifeWear initiative aimed at aiding those affected by conflicts and wars and helping to spread the message of peace all over the world. T-shirts have the power to convey a message. Even if you find it difficult to express your own voice, you can participate easily by wearing one of our UTs. The world needs peace now more than ever, and I hope that with UT PEACE FOR ALL our combined voice to promote world peace will grow louder.” says Mr Tadashi Yanai. 

T-shirts are wonderful items that express the thoughts of the wearer and allow them to share those ideas with the world. UNIQLO continues to earnestly consider what it can do to create a future in which all people are able to live safely, as well as to bring about world peace, and make the world a little bit better. The company will continue to support these activities and promote them further around the world.

Additional design creators following the initial June 17 launch include, in alphabetical order by last name (titles omitted): Jonathan William Anderson, Ayumu Hirano, Rei Inamoto, Kosuke Kawamura, Shingo Kunieda, Christophe Lemaire, Kei Nishikori, Gordon Reid, Adam Scott, and Hana Tajima.
