Global apparel retailer UNIQLO today announces the launch of PEACE FOR ALL, an ongoing commitment to support peace efforts worldwide that uses UT (UNIQLO T-shirt) as the means for everyone to express their individuality. Conducted in collaboration with world-renowned leaders in the areas of art, design, literature, science, and sport, PEACE FOR ALL aims to raise funds by selling T-shirts with designs that convey a desire for peace. UNIQLO parent company Fast Retailing Co., Ltd. will donate all profits from sales, no less than 20% of the sales price of each shirt, to organizations that provide humanitarian aid to those affected by poverty, discrimination, violence, conflict, and natural disasters.
“In May this year, UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, announced that the number of forcibly displaced people worldwide now exceeds 100 million. For people who have been forced to flee their homes, support such as clothing, water, food, medicine, and a safe place to sleep, is vital. Over the years we have engaged in a number of initiatives to assist those forcibly displaced, thanks to the support and cooperation of our customers,” said Tadashi Yanai, Fast Retailing Chairman, President & CEO. “UNIQLO ‘LifeWear’ is everyday clothes for daily lifestyles. PEACE FOR ALL is a new LifeWear initiative aimed at aiding those affected by conflict and war and helping to spread the message of peace all over the world. T-shirts have the power to convey a message. Even if you find it difficult to express your own voice, you can participate easily by wearing one of our UTs. The world needs peace now more than ever, and I hope that with PEACE FOR ALL, this message can be even stronger!” he added.
