About The Challenge
In many developing countries, women aren't able to make their own decisions about marriage and children. As a result, many girls never finish school, become mothers at a young age, and face high mortality risks in childbirth. If mothers can learn more, earn more, and live longer, they can better care for themselves and their families. CARE is focused on improving the health and education of women and children, and you can help.
Design a t-shirt about empowering women to change their world.
In creating your design, think about some of the basic yet crucial care that mothers worldwide provide to their children. Simple things such as affection between babies and mothers, better hygiene, and regular checkups can improve the health of mothers and their babies. By helping increase awareness for CARE, you can decrease mortality rates for mothers and children in 87 countries. You can make a positive change for these women by showing you care about their health. The chosen design will be sold on Threadless, and 100% of net proceeds from the sale of each tee will go to CARE.
The purpose of the submissions relating to this promotion is to create a stand-alone design inspired by the challenge, not a brand tee. Your design should not have brand names or logos on it.

Girls and women are the most effective agents in the fight against poverty.
CARE fights global poverty. We focus our efforts on girls and women because they are disproportionately affected by poverty. But we also know they are the key to fighting it. Our six decades of experience has shown us that when you empower a girl or a woman, she becomes a catalyst, creating ripples of positive change that lift up everyone around her, including other girls, women, boys and men.
