Jonathan David and Fly Nowhere have teamed up with LA-based store Union on a multi-collaborative “For Haiti” collection to help support underprivileged youth football players in Haiti.
David, who is of Haitian decent, created collaborative gear with the store designed by Fly Nowhere in order to raise support for ex-USMNT player Tony Sanneh’s charity The Sanneh Foundation and Haitian Initiative, who are helping over 320 kids in Cité Soleil year round with their education, alongside using football as a catalyst to combat the cycle of poverty.
The Haitian Initiative (HI) is a collaboration of partners working together to bring sustainable programs to Haiti helping motivate kids to stay in school. Regular school attendance and passing grades are a requirement to participate in the program. After every practice, each of the players receive a hot vitamin fortified meal provided by another Minnesota based organisation known as Feed My Starving Children. For the vast majority of HI participants, this meal represents their only meal for the day.
The collection features a slew of co-branded Union / Jonathan David for Haiti items, including a khaki military-inspired jacket, a hoodie and three striking football jerseys adorned with Haitian flag colours. One kit in particular stands out with wavey, throwback graphics that feature in-game shots of the Canadian rising star himself designed by Fly Nowhere, with his trademark No.9 featuring on the back.
The collection will be available this Saturday, March 12, at 9AM PST online and in store at 11AM – wityh 100% of proceeds donated directly to The Haitain Foundation and The Sanneh Foundation.
