Freedom Clothing Project T-Shirts

The extremely modest Joe Turner of Freedom Clothing Project has kindly showed me a new design of his project T-shirts.
I had this itch to share it with you all, aren't they just beautiful!

COPYRIGHT OF Basel Almisshal

So expressive, so brave, so meaningful, so elegant and convey a message in a simple classy way...

The designs were especially made for the Freedom Clothing Project
by the very talented Palestinian designer Basel Almisshal, who retains copyright, so please make sure to contact him if you wish to use his designs.

The Design comes in different sizes and are more than affordable, don't miss the chance!

The project idea by itself fascinated me, and now witnessing its results I must admit I'm out of words...

Again my thanks to Joe Turner for his efforts, wishing him the best of luck and all the support in his project.

Read more about the project here.

    Freedom Clothing Project: Dressing for a better world

    With the economic situation worsening in Palestine every passing day, and unemployment increasing like never before, one can’t but feel this urge to help Palestinians, offer them employment opportunities, and revive their name in a world that has almost forgotten their existence.

    Finally, the dream is coming true, now for the first time ever: t-shirts with a ‘Made in the West Bank and Gaza’ label will be available for purchase.
    All the thanks to the Freedom Clothing Project, a not-for-profit co-operative working with suppliers in Beit Jala in the occupied West Bank.
    The aim of the project is to bring work to some of the estimated 500 clothing manufacturers in the area and to assist them find new markets for their products.

    Freedom Clothing Project uses organic cotton, and provides healthy & environment-friendly working conditions.
    But that’s not all: for every item purchased from Freedom Clothing Project, they will donate a minimum of 10 percent of the money they make to a “charity pot.”

    I’m so thrilled!

    Huda T.V. … A Light In Every Home

    Huda T.V. is a relatively new Islamic channel. It’s actually one of my favourites because of its clarity in explaining Islam, the true Islam that the Holy Quran and The Prophet (pbuh) carried all the way long… not the ugly version some extremists try to spread.
    Another reason why I love that channel is the fact that it’s a 100% English speaking channel, which will guarantee that Muslims all around the world regardless of their nationality, will be able to learn more about their religion. Not only that, but it will also help English speaking non-Muslims know our religion the right way and show them what Islam is all about.

    Another thing that makes this channel very special is that the contributors are not only Arabs but also non-Arabs. Some are born Muslims, some have converted to Islam since a long period of time, some are extremely new Muslims. So you get the chance to see Islam from different Angles and to see its culture through different visions.

    The channel talks about different aspects of Islam: its basics, its rules, its connection to our every day life, its relation to other religions, and many other topics.
    The channel shows a variety of excellent and informative programmes, which reflect the simplicity of Islam and its great spirit.

    I encourage you all to check it out, below is the frequency of the channel:
    Satellite Nilesat
    Frequency 11747
    Polarization Vertical
    Symbol Rate 27500
    FEC 3/4

    Wanna Talk religion?!

    “A few public girls’ schools in Jeddah submitted requests to have gymnasiums built, but their hopes for introducing physical education classes were dashed after the Ministry of Education announced that physical education for girls would not be allowed.
    the Ministry of Education stated that it “would not introduce physical education in girls’ schools” and requested that the media “respect religious, literary and national responsibility” in this regard.
    Source: Arab News

    With all my respect to the Saudi Ministry of Education, but, really, till when are they going to handle people as fools!
    Why does it always have to be in the name of religion?! Please explain to me in what way did Islam ever prohibit females from practicing sports?!
    Just tell me what “religious, literary and national responsibility” are they talking about?!
    Since when has taking responsibility meant forbidding and ignoring!

    When are they going to have the courage to admit that they’re using religion to apply rules they –personally- believe are the best!
    Didn’t Islam call for the equality of women and men? Didn’t Islam urge parents to educate their children of both sexes equally!!

    What religious responsibility are you talking about for God’s sake?! Does that mean that all other Muslim countries that proudly give women the right to physical education do not respect their religion?!! Come On!!

    Saudi women are like any other women in the world, they’re smart, creative and ambitious, and why are you forcing them to give up their rights, why are you deleting their role in society?!!

    This is irresponsible and totally unfair.

    Jordanian Products In Harrods

    "A recent display of Jordan River Foundation (JRF) products at a London landmark is one example of how the organisation, which turned 10 this year, is going global.

    A 50 sq.m. section of Harrods department store's floor space was lent to JRF from November through January to market the foundation's home accessories, which are made by rural community groups in the Kingdom.

    “It's not just the work we are proud of. We are proud of the actual impact that these women will be gaining by having their products sold on an international level. They will have exposure, new marketing channels. It will create more job opportunities,” she added.

    The global market, JRF hopes, will also increase the women's skills and expertise to provide quality products for department stores and boutiques.
    JRF hopes to start a broader international marketing campaign in 2006, primarily in the UK, France and US".

    Now this is what I call a great step forward :)
