DIAMONDS IN THE ROUGH ORIGINALS (D.I.T.R.O) TEAMS UP WITH BROWN BAGGING FOR CALGARY’S KIDS (BB4CK) FOR A LIMITED EDITION LINEUP OF CHARITABLE T-SHIRTS TO HELP PROVIDE SCHOOL LUNCHES FOR CHILDREN IN CALGARY WHO WOULD OTHERWISE GO WITHOUT, TITLED #LUNCHBAGLOVE.

Sam Mendoza, apparel designer + founder of D.I.T.R.O has teamed up with BB4CK for her 6th Edition to create a collaborative limited edition set of “Chari-Tees” (charitable t-shirts) named #LUNCHBAGLOVE to launch on September 4, 2018.

This is Mendoza’s first partner campaign with BB4CK, aiming to raise nearly $4,000 to donate to the BB4CK program by August 2019. Five dollars from the sale of every #LUNCHBAGLOVE t-shirt will go directly to feeding kids through BB4CK programs and services.

Each edition has a set number of prints available online to give the “chari-tees” a unique identity. Every t-shirt within the 6th Edition will feature 1 of 12 custom D.I.T.R.O #LUNCHBAGLOVE artwork designs.

To design the chari-tees, Mendoza and BB4CK created an art contest for the students of the schools supported by BB4CK’s program, and BB4CK volunteers. Students and volunteers submitted a brown lunch bag decorated with their own piece of original art that was drawn, painted, stenciled – or however the contestants wished to express themselves – onto their submitted lunch bag.

From the submissions, Mendoza + BB4CK staff chose the decorated brown bags of 10 students and 2 BB4CK volunteers to feature as 1 of 12 unique #LUNCHBAGLOVE chari-tee designs. Each design will be released as part of a batch of 60 t-shirts released on a monthly basis throughout the campaign, with the combined batches making up the entirety of the #LUNCHBAGLOVE.

HOW LONG HAVE BEEN A VOLUNTEER AT BB4CK?

I started a year ago with BB4CK at the beginning of the school year and loving it ever since! I try to come in twice a week!


WHY DO YOU LOVE VOLUNTEERING AT BB4CK?

I love volunteering at BB4CK for several reasons. Meeting other volunteers and staff with the same mindset and goal is very encouraging and this overwhelmingly positive community we form is very energizing to be a part of. Like most volunteers, we love that what we make and prep in the mornings will be enjoyed within a few hours. There is no question where our efforts are going and this direct impact for the kids is very motivating to keep doing what we’re doing. And it’s a fantastic way to start the morning!


WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO YOU TO GIVE BACK TO OTHERS/VOLUNTEER?

It’s upsetting and sad to understand that there are many kids in our very own city who go to school without knowing where their next meal will come from. While as individuals, we may not have all the solutions or manpower, we can at the very least come and give a bit of our time to make sure a child is fed today. If more of us just give a little bit of ourselves to something we believe in, there’s no telling how much we can achieve together.


FAVOURITE THING TO HAVE FOR LUNCH?

Oh, definitely my usual pea butter & jam sammie. Can’t beat Mom and Dad’s home cooking, too
