Haitian descendant, Ravel Dupiton, Co-Founder of UpArt Socks, wanted to create a way to draw awareness to the ongoing needs of Haiti.
Miami, FL, November 12, 2014 --(PR.com)-- Money needed to rebuild Haiti -- even four years after a catastrophic earthquake leveled the capital city of Port Au Prince - has not grown on trees, but bamboo still does, according to Ravel Dupiton, co-founder of UpArt Socks, which will donate a percent of each custom-designed sock and sunglass sold to help restore infrastructure in his native Caribbean nation.
UpArt Socks, an Atlanta-based designer of socks made from a combination of combed bamboo, spandex, and cotton, will make the contributions in collaboration with Help for Haiti, a Naples, Fla.-based non-profit which has been working for the past 20 years to improve the quality of life for the Haitian people -- especially children - through education, nutrition and healthcare assistance.
