NEW YORK—Church World Service (CWS)—a global humanitarian organization and one of nine U.S. resettlement agencies—today announced that together with the socially and ethically conscious clothing brand World Deeds, its Executive Vice President Maurice A. Bloem’s fifth annual 100 Mile Hunger Walk campaign has debuted four t-shirt designs benefitting its hunger relief efforts.

Eight dollars from every sold t-shirt—now available for purchase in multiple colors and sizes—will go toward the 100 Mile Hunger Walk campaign, an annual initiative that raises awareness and funds to fight hunger around the world. Worldwide, more than 795 million people lack enough food to lead healthy and productive lives. The t-shirts, all on sale for under $25, feature the slogans: “Walk as 1,” “Greater as 1,” “Stand Together as 1,” and “Go The Extra Mile.”

“We’re grateful to World Deeds for partnering with us on our global initiative to fight hunger around the world. Whether we ‘Walk as 1’ or ‘Stand Together as 1,’ it’s clear that we’re ‘Greater as 1’ in tackling this enormous challenge,” said CWS Executive Vice President Maurice A. Bloem. “We encourage everyone to browse these t-shirts and consider buying one to benefit CWS’ hunger relief efforts, and we continue to urge everybody to join our 100 Mile Hunger Walk campaign by directly donating money or logging the miles you already walk, run, cycle or swim at Everybody can ‘Go The Extra Mile’ to help those in need.”

“Maurice and CWS work to give more to the world than it has given them. That’s why this partnership works,” said Founder of World Deeds Eric J. Whitaker.
