Los Angeles’ Brain Dead has enlisted its friend, Dev Hynes, to imagine a special T-shirt with charitable intent. The “WE ARE ONE” shirt, jointly designed by both entities overnight, wholly benefit two organizations that benefit the black and LGBTQIA+ communities.

Emblazoned with Brain Dead’s signature head silhouette at the chest and Hynes’ stage name, Blood Orange. On the the black T-shirt’s rear, contrasting monochrome prints leave no question about the design’s intent: “If you love black culture, protect black lives.” The Movement For Black Lives and the LGBTQ Freedom Fund will receive all of the proceeds from the tee, designated a pre-order set to ship within two weeks with all generated funds going to the charities.

The charitable shirt, available on Brain Dead’s website for $54 USD, has already raised for $500,000 USD for its charities. You can also donate directly to M4BL and the LGBTQ Fund via their own sites.
