“It’s an initiative for us to give back. I mean we live in a country whereby we have a lot of kids that are underprivileged and we can’t give to all of them so we take and give to the ones we can. And like I said, we managed to give to double the amount this year with the help of T-shirt Factory, with that great partnership.”
