Chace Infinite – Africa


Press Release
For Immediate Release

AFRICA
Akomplice x Chace Infinite x Good Wood NYC

Akomplice, Chace Infinite of Self-Scientific, and Good Wood NYC have come together to create a genuinely inspiring project. The project aims to promote change and education in the world’s global water and sanitation crisis. The unique collaborative pack will release at 7PM on February 11th, 2011.

Limited to 65 pieces total and only available on the Akomplice and Good Wood NYC websites. The collaboration package (retail $69.99) consists of an exclusive track from Chace Infinite which is a flip on D’Angelo’s song “Africa,” a handcrafted box set containing an intricately carved Africa necklace from Good Wood, and an original t-shirt from the fellas at Akomplice. 100% of the package’s profits will be donated to Pump Aid, an organization which has developed a cost-efficient water pump for sustainable water production in impoverished African communities.

Akomplice’s Africa t-shirt will also be offered alone later this month.  The T-shirt will be available in red, white, green and black.  The design features a text-formed image of Africa on its front, enumerating sociopolitical issues affecting the continent; its back is brandished by each collaborator and reads “Donate 2 Africa.” The shirt is more than a fashion statement – it represents courage, cohesion, and change. It is a tangible symbol of this project’s support for Africa.

Every year millions of people in developing countries die from a lack of clean water, and hundreds of millions more are susceptible to parallel fates. Take a moment to look at the hard facts. Unsafe water and poor sanitation create health, educational, environmental, and social problems which could easily be prevented with the right tools.

In alignment with Black History Month it is not only appropriate but entirely essential to remember our historical roots in Africa and reflect on this month’s core celebrated values – struggle, strength, ability and action. This project honors those who must endure a daily struggle for survival by taking action and giving them access to clean drinking water, sanitary plumbing, and most importantly greater opportunities in life.
