UPmovement launches Project Oz
We’re super excited to be launching Project Oz - an effort to do our bit to help small businesses and artists in Australia that have been negatively impacted by COVID-19.
Starting from April 20th - UPmovement will move to bring out a line of socks that are:
Manufactured by small businesses in Australia
Designed by Australian artists
By manufacturing in Australia, our orders will keep small local businesses open and provide design-based work for Australian artists.
Artists are one of the hardest-hit groups during this pandemic, with many not eligible for government support. By having artists design socks, we will help grow their audience and reach, so more people can see their work. Each artist will receive an upfront design payment, as well as commission for each pair of socks sold.
100% of profits will still be donated to build prosthetic limbs in developing countries.
PROJECT OZ SOCKS WERE RELEASED ON JUNE 15th!
