Screen Shot 2014-02-13 at 8.12.40 AMStudents from both Independence and Rocky River High Schools have designed t-shirts with global messages aimed at making a difference in the world.

The Any1Can Project is an arts-based global service learning initiative that allows students to learn about seven complex global issues and create an original work of art on a white t-shirt.

The winning t-shirt designs in each of the seven categories will be mass produced to sell in retail establishments across Charlotte.

The t-shirts raise awareness of seven complex global issues; poverty, hunger, clean water, peace, education, protecting the environment, and teaching tolerance.

The funds raised by the Any1Can Project will go to schooling efforts in South Sudan.

Votes cost one dollar each.
