We partnered with Garcon Dargent to raise money for The Bail Project. Garcon Dargent has been making cloth masks from discarded clothing, and donating them to friends and family. This particular batch is made from a 100% cotton Dsquared2 checkered shirt and has a pocket insert for a filter.
All proceeds for each sale will go to The Bail Project, which provides free bail assistance to low-income individuals who are legally presumed innocent, enabling clients to return home to their families and communities while awaiting trial. BIPOC individuals are disproportionately affected by mass incarceration, and every day, nearly half a million people are held in local jails even though they have not been convicted legally. More than half of those incarcerated are parents to children under 18. The Bail Project provides a service to the community and allows individuals who are unable to afford bail to be reunited with their families.
