Russell Wilson Founds Charity Clothing Line To Help Aid Inner-City Education
Russell Wilson is butt of many a joke these days, from his “cornball brotha” personality to his refusal to smash Ciara’s supple cakes to smithereens, but one thing you can’t knock him for is his community service.
The HuffingtonPost is reporting that Russell has started a clothing line that aims to helping kids learn. Gotta respect that, right?
The words are easy to say, but harder to heed. So the 27-year-old NFL star, guided by his strong faith and devotion to inner-city communities, decided it was time to prove that he, too, was living by the motto.
That’s where the Good Man Brand came in. With the coolly confident goal of inspiring an entire generation, Russell Wilson is teaming up his Good Man Brand with his Why Not You Foundation to launch something they hope will better lives. Using a business model similar to that of TOMS — a company known for its policy of “buy-one, give-one” — Good Man Brand opens its doors with the promise that for every item sold, it will share its profits with a charity of choice.
The “Good Man Brand” is promising that $3 from every purchase will go to charity — and he’s committing now to assisting inner-city education, a cause personally selected by Wilson and his team for the tangible, immediate impact it can have on inner-city children all over the nation.
There are no details as to where you’ll be able to purchase Russell’s clothes at this time, but if you happen to see it while you’re shopping for Jordan’s, pick up a shirt or something and help a child in need.
