We need about ten of these cute shirts, designed by Italia Ricci, because not only are they the cutest, they’re also for a good cause.
The Designated Survivor star has teamed with the Los Angeles based apparel company good hYOUman to fight cancer. Their movement is to encourage peers both with cancer and without, to focus on the things they love, whether it be food, activities, or people. To figure out what’s important and keep that in their lives, no matter what.
The message on the shirt, “Love Pizza, Hate Cancer”, is all due to Italia‘s insane love for pizza and her continuous efforts to end cancer.
“I knew almost nothing about Cancer when I started my journey on the show [Chasing Life]. Cancer had such a terrifying stigma and I’d given it this power it didn’t deserve. I was uneducated and I was afraid,” she shared in a statement.
Italia added, “April’s story brought a whole new set of revelations. The first one being that having cancer doesn’t mean your whole life is cancer. But the feeling of taking off the bald cap, of taking off the cancer after we were done filming, felt unfair. It was that feeling that drove me to be a part of the philanthropic community. I learned that when you’re trying to make a difference, it doesn’t have to be massive, you don’t have to be famous, all you have to do is anything.”
The capsule collection will launch on November 4th and will be on sale until November 30th. $7 for every unit sold will go towards Stand Up to Cancer’s research.
