The London and LA based fashion designer Reese Cooper, gives back with his latest hoodie design. The all black hoodie features bold red lettering that reads “WATER IS MORE PRECIOUS THAN GOLD.” Artists like Tyler the Creator and G-Eazy have been spotted wearing the woke gear. Cooper says he wanted to help families suffering from the Flint Water Crisis. ““I’m a kid who makes clothes, and I thought in some way I could help or at least let the families of Flint know they are not forgotten and I care,” says Reese, who called on friends Tyler, The Creator and G-Eazy to support the non-profit project. “Not once growing up did I hesitate to drink a glass of water in my own home. Not once did my mom have to decide if she could afford to buy bottled water rather than run the tap. My hoodie project is small. I hope to do much more. Every kid deserves safe water — it’s their right,” says Cooper. The hoodies is being sold for $100 but all proceeds will go towards the Flint Child Health & Development Fund. Support the cause here.
