Craig shares details of a new charity T Shirt to help the victims of stroke
Stroke is the third leading cause of death in the US. In 2016 an estimated 57,000 people in the UK suffered from stroke. Your chances of having one increase with age and you’re more likely to suffer if you are male compared to female. Scary stats huh? But it’s not just older people, so it’s time that we recognised this and did something about it.
This new range of T-Shirts is helping to raise awareness of the cause. Not only are they doing this but they’re a pretty cool addition to you wardrobe. In five distinctive designs, in black or white, with long or shirt sleeves, they are available exclusively at Represent.com, a range of stylish.The campaign has been shot by acclaimed fashion photographer, Daniel Jaems and features five stroke survivors including: Sarah Scott a science technician who had her stroke at 18 years old; Joe Marchant a builder who had his stroke at 15; Peter Mooney a jewellery designer who had his stroke at 34; Daniella Posner a PR Director who had her stroke at 26 and Dancing on Ice professional skater Alex Murphy who had her stoke at 24.
Also supporting is Game of Thrones actress Laura Pradelska and international models Richard Biedul and Charlie Winzar. The campaign was created to show that anyone can suffer from a stroke and unlike many conditions there isn’t a cure, although survivors can improve in time. A growing number of stroke sufferers are under 40 and this is where the Style For Stroke Foundation seeks to highlight, educate and influence people to make healthy lifestyle choices and lower their risk of stroke.
The #NotJustACharityTee collection launched on the 9th of July with prices from £20. A minimum of 25% of the retail price from the sale of each T-shirt will go to the Style For Stroke Foundation.
“I am so excited to be launching this year’s campaign with such a strong collection that really does make an impact. Style For Stroke has always been about being inclusive, cool and compassionate with an edge and I think that with the Represent team we really have achieved this.” Nick Ede, Style For Stroke.
