Designed to represent the spirit, vitality and energy of the host continent of the FIFA World Cup, profits from the “Waka Waka” t-shirt campaign will benefit early childhood education initiatives in South Africa.
"The true spirit of this World Cup means making a lasting contribution,” said Shakira. “We can add to its legacy by using this historic moment as a platform to advocate for quality education for South Africa’s children, and an end to poverty and inequality wherever it exists.”
A total of four t-shirts, two for women and two for men, with the slogans “Waka Waka” and “This Time for Africa” have been designed for the occasion and will be sold in MANGO stores worldwide beginning the 10th of June. The t-shirts will be priced at 18€ and 19€, respectively. Click here to find MANGO stores near you.
Proceeds from the t-shirt sales will support the Barefoot Foundation, founded by Shakira, to expand early childhood education initiatives in South Africa, where 1 in 10 children suffers from severe malnutrition, and where HIV/AIDS accounts for 35 percent of deaths in children under five. The money will go directly from Barefoot Foundation to those South African schools that are selected to receive funding from this campaign.
I want one, but I have no money :(
