Teatime Thursday: Code Purple

Fact: There are more than 225 million cases of Malaria reported each year worldwide.  
This life-threatening disease is caused by parasites that are transmitted to people through bites of infected mosquitoes.  

ING Activewear created MOSKEETO ARMOR™, a fabric that is mosquito repellent and has the potential to save millions of lives around the world. 

ING and Touch the World (TTW) have teamed up with top fashion designers, and will launch this product internationally through the Code Purple Event as part of Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in NYC on February 16th. This life changing technology has initiated an international campaign against Malaria, and has already begun to be distributed to people in Africa in the form of these stylish sweatshirts.


Pretty amazing, right? How can you get involved? 

Wear Your Support: 
If you can’t make it to the NYC event, you can show support by picking up your hoodie at www.INGactivewear.com or make a donation at www.codepurpleevent.com.  
For every hoodie purchased through ING Activewear’s website, ING Activewear will contribute by donating another hoodie to be sent to Africa to better someone’s life.

What a great way to improve someone else's life, and add a stylish new addition to your closet! That bright purple is perfect for color blocking, a huge spring trend this year.

Let's change the world, one bit at a time!
