Wu-Tang Clan Partners With StockX for Charity Sale
“Charity Rules Everything Around Me.”
Wu-Tang Clan has partnered with online “stock market of things” StockX to sell rare and exclusive pieces from the group’s history for charity. The so-called “Charity IPO” will see users pay $10 USD for the chance to win a Wu-Tang item, with pieces including a Polo Ralph Lauren Snow Beach hat and poncho signed by Raekwon and a Brazil soccer jersey worn and signed by GZA.
All proceeds from the sale — which has been named C.R.E.A.M. (Charity Rules Everything Around Me) — will go to the Wu-Tang Foundation which supports children from marginalized and neglected communities. Donations are open until March 16, and more than $15,000 USD has been raised in the first day. This isn’t the first time that StockX has worked on charitable projects, with the online reselling platform previously hosting an exclusive launch of Eminem’s Air Jordan 4 “Encore” 2017 Retro and raising $300,000 USD for hurricane relief.
