Spread #GoodLove with Obakki Foundation’s Signature Red Scarf

Wednesday 06th, November 2013 / 08:30

While fashion and philanthropy aren’t typically synonymous, the Obakki Foundation has found a way to merge the two, and do some serious good in the process. The Obakki Foundation drills and monitors water wells in Africa and uses a canvas they know best – fashion – to make this all happen.

As fashion lovers, wearing a new garment can bring joy to our day, serve as a conversation starter, or in the case of Obakki garments, tell a heartfelt story that’s worth spreading. Obakki’s Signature Red Scarf does all that. At $29, it’s an inexpensive piece of luxury, style, and philanthropy you can buy for yourself or someone else in your life you’d like to spread good love to. The best part? 100% of the proceeds from purchasing the scarf are used to drill water wells in South Sudan, one of the least developed countries in the world. When 500 scarves are purchased, one water well can be built! It all begins with water, and access to it leads to vastly improved health and sanitation, access to education, reduced conflict, and overall allows for communities to not only survive, but also thrive. Over the past three years, the Obakki Foundation has provided over 400 wells, and brought water to more than 500,000 people. We think that this is definitely good love worth spreading!

We just purchased our Obakki Signature Red Scarf – and you should too. We will be staying warm in ours all winter long. Spread the #GoodLove and help those in need (oh, and look good while doing it).
