In celebration of the life and 100th birthday of revolutionary Nelson Mandela, Advisory Board Crystals have partnered with Global Citizen for a limited edition long sleeve in honor of the former South African President’s ideas and traits.

Appropriately limited to 100 shirts, the tee features planets orbiting around an oversized Global Citizen logo with an almost invisible glitter text that reads “my identity transcends geography or political borders and my responsibilities or rights are derived from membership in a broader class known as humanity.” The text comes from the Wikipedia description of a “global citizen.” According to abc, the tees represent “a set of ideals and a partnership for a greater cause,” as well as an embodiment of standing up what you believe in and not falling into a broken or formulated system.

There is currently no information on when the long sleeve will release.

Five years ago yesterday, we remember the passing of Nelson Mandela. 100 years ago this year, an icon was born. Together, in partnership with @glblctzn and @thehouseofmandela we celebrate his life. Nelson Mandela embodies the mentality, ideals, and traits of what we feel being an “indigo spirit” represents. Challenging and standing up for what you believe in, not falling into a formulated and broken system, and making the world a better place by contributing your own unique perspective. This T-shirt is much more than a T-shirt. It represents a set of ideals and a partnership for a greater cause. It is the relationship between Nelson Mandela and making those today aware of what kind of person he was; hopefully sparking that same energy in the people we reach through this shirt. The planets orbit around the oversized Global Citizen logo with an almost invisible glitter text that reads “my identity transcends geography or political borders and my responsibilities or rights are derived from membership in a broader class known as humanity.” (As taken from the description on @wikipedia defining the idea of a “global citizen.”) This year celebrates the 100 year anniversary of Nelson Mandela and this past weekend the world celebrated the GLOBAL CITIZEN FESTIVAL MANDELA 100 in Johannesburg South Africa. 100 shirts were made in honor of Mandela’s centennial. Stay tuned for release details. #Mandela100 #GCmandela100
