Fashion Fridays: YB Afraid

Words by Erin MacLeod–

Yohan Blake is not only a multi-medal winner at the London Olympics, but he’s also the founder of a foundation that bears his name. The YB Afraid Foundation began in 2011 with the goal of working to “support organizations and develop programs that address the educational, physical and mental health and social needs of underprivileged youth.” This year, the foundation developed a whole line of tshirts–they can be purchased exclusively at Joseph’s locations in Jamaica for 1500 JMD. The shirts are incredibly soft and comfortable–they come in white, black, green, yellow and red and all proceeds go straight to the foundation.

The Jamaica Observer featured some of the t-shirts in a recent issue. These pictures give you some idea of the options.
