Reese Cooper is a London and LA-based fashion designer. Much like Heron Preston, he’s hoping to do good with his designs. According to the designer, he wanted to help the families suffering from the Flint water crisis. His hoodie, with the words “WATER IS MORE PRECIOUS THAN GOLD” has been worn by the likes of Tyler, The Creator and G-Eazy. All proceeds from the hoodie will benefit the Flint Child Health & Development Fund.

“I’m a kid who makes clothes, and I thought in some way I could help or at least let the families of Flint know they are not forgotten and I care,” says Reese, who called on friends Tyler, The Creator and G-Eazy to support the nonprofit project. “Not once growing up did I hesitate to drink a glass of water in my own home. Not once did my mom have to decide if she could afford to buy bottled water rather than run the tap. My hoodie project is small. I hope to do much more. Every kid deserves safe water — it’s their right,” says Cooper.

Buy the hoodie here for $100 USD.
