LOS ANGELES, Dec. 10 /PRNewswire/ — On Dec. 19, 2009 Forever 21, Inc. is launching a charitable line of T-shirts personally designed by notable celebrities with 100 percent of the proceeds, or 2/3 of the purchase price of the T-shirts to benefit Starlight Children’s Foundation – helping seriously ill children and their families cope with their pain, fear and isolation through entertainment, education and family activities.
The celebrity designers – Starlight Spokesperson Corbin Bleu, Paris, Nicky and Kathy Hilton, Colbie Caillat, Demi Lovato, and Audrina Patridge – were given art materials, which included paints, markers, and sketch pads, to create a unique painting on canvas using the themes of “star” and “light.” Forever 21 designers incorporated each celebrity’s design onto a cotton T-shirt or tank top.
“I am excited to be designing a T-shirt on behalf of Starlight and Forever 21,” said Corbin. “As a Starlight ambassador I have been inspired by the children and families I have had the privilege of meeting along the way, and by the strength they’ve shown in the hardest of times. I encourage everyone to get involved with Starlight and help lift the spirits of these brave children.”
The special line of T-shirts will be available for purchase in select Forever 21 stores and online at Forever21.com. The T-shirts will retail for $12.80. Additionally, each celebrity’s original artwork will be up for auction at Starlight’s eBay store (www.ebay.com/starlight), starting Dec. 21.
