The Michigan-based nonprofit organization [Has Heart] is visiting all 50 states for a project called “50 States: Veterans + Artists United.” The project partners one Veteran with one designer in each state with the mission to share that Veteran’s story through the mediums of art, design, and fashion. Each collaboration will be made into a limited edition t-shirt and an embroidered patch with proceeds going directly back to the Veteran. Learn more.
Personally, I love learning and gaining new perspectives. Before this project, my experience with the military has been few and far between. And thinking about it, that’s probably true for most civilians. So often we’re exposed to the military as an entity and not the individuals.
