Every issue, Three Magazine teams up with brands to offer you a dope af prize for donating to the You + Three initiative. The idea is simple: When you donate to You + Three you’re enabling us to keep bringing you the content you dig, helping us support the local creative community as well as donate 33% to the charity of your choice (yes, you can vote every issue which charity you want us to support) AND you automatically enter our raffle to WIN*. It’s a win-win-win!
This month we’re giving to two causes: The Collins Khosa Family Fund and Saartjie Baartman Centre. It’s been a very traumatic and trying time for us as South Africans as well as for the world (the COVID-19 pandemic continues to change and alter our everyday lives as we know it).
It’s as simple as donating from R50. You will be automatically entered!
We’ve teamed up with local fashion and streetwear brands Masa Mara, BRAhSSE and Kazard clothing to give you an AWESOME prize of one item per brand. It’s all the more reason to enter.
Get to Know the You + Three P.O.A Issue Partners and Causes:
SAARTJIE BAARTMAN CENTRE
With the recent spate of femicide-related headlines in South Africa, the work NGOs like the Saartjie Baartman Centre do is highlighted. This NGO offers “safe accommodation, counselling, legal, and economic empowerment” for abused women and children.
““Every year I need to fundraise for R6 million rand to keep the doors open, obviously during the lockdown and the Covid-19 era that is increasingly difficult”, says Director, Bernadine Bach. They need our help more than ever.
COLLINS KHOSA FAMILY FUND
The #blacklivesmatter movement has re-surged to bring the world’s attention to police brutality and the systemic racism that allows this to thrive. The murder of George Floyd sparked outrage across the world and asked us all to look at police brutality closer to home.
Many joined the call for justice for the killing of Collins Khosa, who was allegedly beaten in his home by SANDF members during the lockdown. A Back a Buddy fund was started to support his family and ensure a comfortable future for his children.
We’ve had our eye on this South African-based and Rwandan-born athleisure brand since we saw them at the South African Menswear Week 2020. Read about it here.
This brand is proudly inspired by the diversity of African cultures.
We’ve gotta admit, we’ve been crushing HARD on BRAhSSE and are so excited to collab with them on a good cause.
The streetwear brand describes themself as : A blend of culture, heritage and freedom of Xpression through locally produced streetwear and creativity. Aweh!
‘Kazard’ means “you’re a king/queen of your own area”. That pretty much sums up the M.O of this emerging unisex streetwear brand.
Kazard clothing is all about inclusivity and owning your power (hence the wolf logo). The only requirement is: “Be confident when you’re wearing this.“ Not a hard promise to make!
*Raffle entries will close for this prize and cause 30 July 2020.
