Change of Pace 5K
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Five-Thousand Feet to End Homelessness
Chicago, IL, September 22, 2012—KNO Clothing, an ethical fashion line, is striding to end homelessness through the Change of Pace 5K in Jackson Park, hosted by non-profit organization The Prop. In addition, KNO Clothing will organize a clothing delivery event in Chicago.
Since December 2010, KNO Clothing has donated over 1,000 articles of clothing and housed nearly 17,000 people using a remarkable 50% of its profits to relieve homelessness. Joining Change of Pace 5K is just part of KNO Clothing’s Manifesto:
“Anyone can help—and we love that.”
Co-founders Stephen Caldwell and Anthony Thomas have been recognized by Philadelphia Business Journal, The Huffington Post, and The National Alliance on Ending Homelessness for their fashion and vision for social justice. Along with its iconic organic and fairly-traded cotton tees, KNO Clothing now provides dresses, messenger bags, bracelets, and even gift packages providing medical care, transportation, or a housewarming gift for people experiencing homelessness.
Through e-commerce sales and locally-focused partnerships, KNO Clothing and The Prop hope to help end homelessness in Chicago one t-shirt and one runner at a time.
