If you are the proud owner of one of this year’s unique Comic Relief t-shirts, brace yourself for some ridiculously good news. Your purchase has helped TK Maxx (who produce the t-shirts exclusively) raise a record-breaking £4 million for Red Nose Day 2015. Astonishing, right?
TK Maxx's awesome fundraising total surpassed all expectations. And here at ELLE, we’re particularly proud, having teamed up the incredible roster of designers – Karl Lagerfeld, Anya Hindmarch, Diane von Furstenberg, Matthew Williamson and Henry Holland – with the fashion store, to ensure that these are the most stylish charity tees you’ll ever buy.
Most of all, though, we’re thrilled that our collaboration has helped raise millions that will change the lives children and adults across the world.
Since last Red Nose Day Comic Relief funded projects have helped 600,000 people in the UK and further afield the charity has (deep breath) supported over 5.4 million people affected by Malaria, bought 1 million vaccines, helped 4 million people access primary healthcare services, reunited 7,290 children with their families, released 2,700 children from dangerous working conditions.
Now, if that isn’t something to celebrate we don’t know what is. And if you haven’t got your t-shirt yet, they’re still on sale for ANOTHER WEEK at tkmaxx.com and TK MAXX stores across the UK. This is your last chance to get your hands on a piece of fashion history.
