For Better, Not Worse is a business of which its clothing is made in Los Angeles, California. The collection includes graphic tees, hoodies, sweatshirts, and Tanks. The clothing is made from jersey knit, tri-blends and cotton. Each shirt has a positive affirmation across the front.
For Better, Not Worse has teamed up with Families in Transition (FIT) and the Pasadena Unified School District. Families in Transition, provides assistance to families in need.
Founder Patricc Reed states the companies goal is to donate a bag of groceries to a child in need. The companies plan is to disburse food four times annually. As the company grows the number of distributions will too. Ultimately Reed hopes to disburse food to cities nationwide on a weekly basis. June 4 was the most recent distribution of food, For Better, Not Worse planned on having more than 550 bags of food. Reed has made wholesale accounts available and so far has landed orders from Sodo and Dungarees.
The next step For Better, Not Worse is to create a new website, which Reed expects to be up an running in a few months.
For Better, Not Worse is a unique business that gives back to its community. I think that this business motto is genius. It gives the consumer the power of investing in a child that is in need of food, here in our own country. There is an abundance of organizations that donate to other countries in need, that we neglect to see that we have hundreds of children that go days with out eating in our own communities.
We need more types of businesses like this in the US. The company sells products that send a positive message to the consumer and the public by embellishing all its clothing with positive affirmations. It is a win win situation for both parties. The children that are in need of food, get the happiness of being cared for. They receive healthy food given to them by individuals that want to make a difference in their lives. They are also getting faith. Faith that there are people that will help, and hope for a better life.
The consumer gets the joy of knowing that they are helping a child that is in need of food. They are also getting a great shirt that has a positive message. This gives them the satisfaction of making a difference in their own community, and as the company grows it will be a satisfaction of helping our country fight hunger and doing our part as US citizens.
For Better, Not Worse has the potential of becoming a big business. A business for hope. An industry that helps its country make a difference, by feeding the hungry one shirt at a time.
