In the name of social justice, three pillars of youth culture have united for a charitable raffle and T-shirt pre-order. jeffstaple has enlisted Hiroshi Fujiwara and Futura for a three-way raffle in support of the American Civil Liberties Union, Equal Justice Initiative and Art Start.

Part of Staple‘s short-term anti-racist action — the company also has long-term plans, soon to be explained further — the raffle includes a series of grail-worthy goods provided by the three creatives.

Fujiwara offers the ultra-rare fragment design x Air Jordan 1, while Futura has donated a FL-001 Pointman figure, only one of six pieces worldwide. Meanwhile, jeffstaple delivers a trio of covetable kicks: the SBTG x Staple Air Force 1, a laser-etched Panda Pigeon and one-of-one Pigeon Dunk High made by Garrixon Studios.

A special Black Lives Matter T-shirt has been designed by Futura to accompany the raffle, with all proceeds from its pre-order going towards the charities and all customers automatically entered into the raffle. The simple design efficiently gets it point across via Futura’s signature scrawl on the front: “BLACK LIVES MATTER.” The rear is similarly understated, simply featuring Staple and Futura Laboratories co-branding.

Enter the raffle and/or pre-order the Futura-designed shirt on Staple’s website (note that pre-order ends within 48 hours). Each dollar donated counts as a single “ticket” towards the item of your choice, meaning that a $5 USD donation is five “tickets,” pre-ordering the $40 USD shirt is 40 “tickets” and so on. Three winners will be selected to receive the prizes offered by the three creatives and entrants may select their desired prize when donating through Staple’s site.

Simultaneously, another Black Lives Matter-supporting auction has been launched by Takashi Murakami, who has created a variety of limited edition prints.
