Hello! We are a 501(c)3 fundraising nonprofit organization that utilizes 100% of profits from selling uniquely designed clothing to empower nonprofit organizations aimed at sustainably breaking the cycle of poverty in the Middle East.
To raise funds in creative ways, Project Break The Cycle produces unique merchandise in which 100% of profits are donated to the current campaign. Every few months, we switch campaigns and partner with a different nonprofit to help another cause. We need artists that can adequately capture the condition of the population that we serve through the medium of fashion design.
Right now, we are partnered with the Yemen Relief and Reconstruction Foundation, a nonprofit focused on creating sustainable, practical solutions towards reconstruction in Yemen, as well as raising awareness about the current Yemeni humanitarian crisis. We’re currently funding their Income Generation campaign, which you can learn more about on our Campaigns page. More information can be found at yemenfoundation.org.
These designs are open-ended to whatever you think is appropriate, but are encouraged to be inspired by Yemeni culture, nature, or the current crisis. Your design can be embroidered or screen printed, so keep that in mind!
To date, Project Break The Cycle has raised over $20,000 for amazing causes. The designs you will be creating will significantly impact people entangled in Yemen's humanitarian crisis, and can change lives forever. In exchange for your design contributions, we will be providing you with exposure on our current platform, giving you the spotlight and credit on your work through our merchandise (your name/brand on every piece of merchandise produced) and social media features, or monetary payment depending on the submission. We are accepting artwork on a rolling basis. Please allow 1-2 weeks for us to get back to you. Email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
