Fashion designer and TV personality, Whitney Port, has partnered with Buzznet.com, the web’s largest social magazine written for youth by youth, and To Write Love on Her Arms (TWLOHA), a non-profit movement dedicated to helping people struggling with depression, addiction, self-injury and suicide, to launch a 2011 Vans Warped Tour t-shirt design contest.
One talented winner will be handpicked by Whitney Port and TWLOHA and have their graphic printed on t-shirts that will be sold at the TWLOHA merch booth throughout The 2011 Vans Warped Tour. All proceeds from the sale of the winning shirt will be given as a charitable donation to TWLOHA and will help support their ongoing movement of presenting hope and finding help for people struggling with depression, addiction, self-injury and suicide.
As part of their challenge and in support of TWLOHA’s mission, challenge participants will need to incorporate the theme of hope, stories, and the beauty that happens when the two come together in their submissions. Whitney Port and To Write Love on Her Arms will be evaluating every design and will carefully select the winning graphic based on its aesthetic appeal and embodiment of the challenge theme. All submissions must be entered on Buzznet by 5/31.
“I’m honored to be working with TWLOHA and Buzznet on this exciting contest that brings creativity, music and charity together around one of summer’s most marquis events,” said Whitney Port. “TWLOHA is an amazing organization and Buzznet and the Vans Warped Tour are perfect venues to connect millions of young people with an important cause.”
“We’re always looking for new ways to spread our movement across youth culture and Buzznet is a perfect partner because of their reach and relationships with millions of young people,” said Jamie Tworkowski. “We’re also excited to work with Whitney Port who we’re sure will lend a keen design eye to this artistic challenge and inspire her stylish fans to learn more about our organization.”
