Akomplice X Chace Infinite X Good Wood Nyc

Date: February 26 2011

Akomplice, Chace Infinite of Self-Scientific, and Good Wood NYC have come together to create a genuinely inspiring project that aims to promote awareness of the world's global water and sanitation crisis. The pack is limited to 65 pieces in total and is only available on the Akomplice and Good Wood NYC websites. The collaboration package consists of an exclusive track from Chace Infinite which is a flip on D'Angelo's song 'Africa' (download it here), a handcrafted box set containing an intricately carved Africa necklace from Good Wood, and an original t-shirt from the fellas at Akomplice. 100% of the package's profits will be donated to Pump Aid, an organization which has developed a sustainable, cost-efficient water pump for impoverished African communities.

PRESS RELEASE

Akomplice's Africa t-shirt will also be offered alone later this month. The T-shirt will be available in red, white, green and black. The design features a text-formed image of Africa on its front, enumerating sociopolitical issues affecting the continent; its back is brandished by each collaborator and reads 'Donate 2 Africa.' The shirt is more than a fashion statement - it represents courage, cohesion, and change. It is a tangible symbol of this project?s support for Africa.

Every year millions of people in developing countries die from a lack of clean water, and hundreds of millions more are susceptible to parallel fates. Take a moment to look at the hard facts. Unsafe water and poor sanitation create health, educational, environmental,
and social problems which could easily be prevented with the right tools.

In alignment with Black History Month it is not only appropriate but entirely essential to remember our historical roots in Africa and reflect on this month's core celebrated values - struggle, strength, ability and action. This project honors those who must endure a daily struggle for survival by taking action and giving them access to clean drinking water, sanitary plumbing, and most importantly greater opportunities in life.

Special Note:
The t-shirt alone will also be available for purchase later this month at many fine Akomplice retailers worldwide. This version(retail $30.00) is branded with an alternate back print. 50% of Akomplice's profits will be donated to Pump Aid on the globally distributed version.
