FriendsWithYou founders, Samuel Borkson and Arturo Sandoval III commented “We believe that together we can create a peaceful and joyful world by celebrating our diversities and commonalities. This FriendsWithYou x GUESS effort will begin by bringing magical experiences, on a massive scale, sprinkled throughout the globe. Simultaneously, we will release a shirt symbolising world unity and peace and donate 100% of the proceeds to charities focused on ecological and humanitarian efforts.”
