Open Arms

In case you were wondering…we donated your aired t-shirts to an organization in Austin, Texas called Open Arms. We thought since y’all were so generous with us, we’d pass on the generosity!

Open Arms hires refugee women from war torn countries who have fled their homes in search of a safer place to live. They take donated t-shirts, wash them, and turn them into new clothing — mostly scarves and skirts.

The workers at Open Arms are paid a living wage — the amount of money needed to support a family in everyday life. They are a for-benefit company that is looking to create positive social change.

Now your donated t-shirts will get a new life supporting refugees settling into their new home. So thanks!
