Designs by children for charity at KappAhl
KappAhl has again organised a design competition for charity* where children describe in images and words what "Fine as I am" means to them. Now the winning entries have been chosen by an unanimous jury. The motifs will be printed on t-shirts sold to raise money for charity* in KappAhl stores and Shop Online from mid-August.
"The response has been amazing! Imaginative motifs and important messages have been sent in by children of all ages including entire school classes", says KappAhl's Head Public Relations Charlotte Högberg.
In 2014 KappAhl launched the "Fine as I am" campaign for the work for children’s rights. The campaign also started this year with a competition in which children designed a t-shirt motif that shows what "Fine as I am" means to them. This year's winners are Zofia, aged 10, from Ostrówek in Poland, and Emma, aged 9, from Svedala in Sweden. Their winning motifs will now be printed on t-shirts and sold from mid-August in all of the countries with KappAhl stores, to raise money for the children's rights organisations* being supported.

"Fine as I am": With the campaign "Fine as I am", KappAhl wants to highlight the work of children’s rights organisations and emphasise the message that really should be obvious – that all children and young people are fine as they are. The supported children’s rights organisations have contact with children and young people every day and many of them say they feel pressure both from those around them and from themselves to be more intelligent, cooler, better looking, taller, shorter, thinner, stronger, lighter, browner, funnier and better. They quite simply don't feel they are good enough as they are.
