Urban Outfitters will make a $100,000 donation to Bubba Wallace‘s Live to Be Different foundation through the sales of a limited edition collection of T-shirts. Those shirts highlight Wallace’s Compassion, Love and Understanding paint scheme from Martinsville Speedway.
“We’re honored to be partnering with Bubba Wallace, NASCAR and Richard Petty Motorsports and announcing a charitable contribution to the Live To Be Different Foundation through the exclusive Bubba Wallace race tees,” said Gabby Conforti Chief Merchandising Officer at Urban Outfitters in a statement. “We know that this is a movement and not a moment and we are so proud to be part of the positive change that Bubba is creating.”
The two shirts were designed exclusively for Urban Outfitters are limited edition. The black UO Community Cares + Bubba Wallace Compassion Tee features “Bubba Wallace” text in his own signature, two hands shaking in solidarity with iconic black and white racing flags and Bubba’s No. 43. The white UO Community Cares + Bubba Wallace 43 Tee has Bubba’s signature on the top left corner and bold graphics on the back including his race number and his Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE.
“My hope is to empower the next generation to strive and achieve anything they put their mind to,” said the 26-year-old Wallace in a statement. “This collaboration with Urban Outfitters will go a long way in spreading the message of compassion, love and understanding and enable the Live To Be Different Foundation to have a positive and lasting impact on as many individuals that we possibly can.”
