This t-shirt was designed by a refugee in Zürich. T-shirts are made from GOTS certified organic cotton, and are produced according to fair-trade principles, by an organization in India that re-trains and employs former prostitutes. Choedon decided to donate her 20% from the sale of each t-shirt to Rokpa International, and organization that provides aid in Tibet.

Story by: Choedon Arya (Tibet)
When I was around 7 years old, I used to go outside with friends after school, and my grandpa used to get angry. He used to come and scold me, but I always hid underneath the bed. He would try to poke me with a stick while I was hiding there, but after a few minutes he forgot everything and gave me chocolate and lots of love. I used to repeat the same thing over and over again, knowing that he couldn’t find me, and that he would forgive me anyway. When I remember doing this, I realize that I was too naughty and never listened to him. The noise of his feet used to scare me, but I miss my grandpa a lot and I love him so much!
