In Solidarity with: Palestine
Kuffiyeh Prints + Free Palestine Hoodies
For every Free Palestine Hoodie you purchase, Healing our Homeland will donate a backpack & essential school supplies to a child in Gaza.
100% of proceeds from the Kuffiyeh Prints will go towards Islamic Relief’s program to empower Palestinian women-headed families to increase their economic autonomy.
Apartheid, ethnic cleansing, systematic displacement and dispossession - these are just some of the crimes that have been committed against Palestinians for decades and continue to be committed today. To learn more about what’s happening on the ground in Palestine please follow @theimeu. Learn about the rich history and importance of the Kuffiyeh here.

In Solidarity with: Islah Academy
This print will go towards providing a safe learning environment for children in the South LA Inner City through Islah Academy, a cutting-edge Islamic school in its implementation of Restorative Justice as a tool to break the School-to-Prison Pipeline.
Inner City public school students face a multitude of difficulties, including bullying. Islah Academy provides a safe, affirming school environment that teaches young students holistic skills. When you support this cause you help make this kind of high-quality education more affordable for students and their families.
