REAL TOTEM

This design was inspired by native american totem poles. While totem poles are typically a vertical representation of animal spirits carved into wood, Gary Atwood used this vertical layout to design a shirt for Multeepurpose incorporating real pictures of animals.  Visit shopmulteepurpose.com for more information and

We recently stumbled upon Multeepurpose, a very cool clothing company that makes clothing for myriad purposes. Each piece is designed for a specific cause, separated into the categories of Humanity, Liberty, Eco, Animal, and Urgent.

Currently working with the likes of fifteen amazing organizations, including the Somaly Mam Foundation, Doctors Without Borders, National Center for the Preservation of Democracy, Ark and The California Wildlife Center, you can shop style, cause or benefactor. Each item gives back 20% to a specific organization, and Multeepurpose has something for everyone! Men, women, children and even babies can find comfort in their trendy tshirts, hoodies, dresses and onsies. We think their kids stuff is especially adorable, but all clothing for a good cause is amazing!

Muteepurpose takes pride in printing their shirts on site in Downtown Los Angeles on 100% organic cotton with water-based, eco-friendly inks. Check them out today!

1,000 Wishes…

The ancient Japanese tradition of senbazuru promises that a person who folds 1000 cranes will be granted a wish, such as long life or recovery from illness. Many times a family or group of people come together to accomplish this labor of love.

The Thousand Origami Cranes has become a symbol of world peace through the story of Sadako Sasaki. Although many stories and variations exist, the most common is that Sadako was a Japanese girl who tried to stave off her death from leukemia as a result of radiation from the bombing of Hiroshima during World War II by making one thousand origami cranes. Having folded only 644 before her death, her friends completed the remaining cranes and buried them with her. (This is only one version of the story. Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum states that she did, in fact, complete the 1,000 cranes.)

As an ongoing community project we are collecting wishes and putting our own spin on the idea…
Together with the help of our friends and family (an especially big thanks to Norianne Ingram) we have folded hundreds of cranes. We did the hard work for you!  All you need to do is make a wish. Ask for something, anything you want – and put it out there.  It’s anonymous – so only you will know which wish is yours.

Send an anonymous wish to us, and we will add it to our gallery of wishes: one crane = one wish.
Write it on a napkin, in a letter, on a postcard. Wish for anything – Love, Peace, a new pair of shoes. It’s up to you.

Mail your wish to:
Multeepurpose- 1000 wishes
269 S. San Pedro Street
Los Angeles, CA 90012

We will be collecting your wishes over the next few months and will then publish them anonymously on our blog.

We began project 1000 wishes at WWDMAGIC, spreading a little joy to any who cared to leave their wish at our wishing tree. Our goal is to gather 1000 wishes and put some good “ju ju” out into the universe.
