Why are we talking about 'Workers of Hope'?


Who is a Worker of Hope?

Everyone can be a Worker of Hope, by being generous, making a change and caring for those around you.
Gandhi once said: 

“You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty.”

Wearing 1C1Y and supporting a child in need with every item makes you a Worker of Hope. You just feel better knowing that your outfit has brought new light and joy to a discouraged child.

We believe in humanity, a better tomorrow and a world where we help the next generation. There is a movement of everyday heroes, Workers of Hope, who smile, encourage and stand up for what is good. We wanted to create fashion for people who want to make a difference.

Inspiring others

We got inspired by some incredible everyday heroes around us, like Johanna. She works as an art-therapist at ARTHELPS, helping children to process traumas, confusion and recover to new confidence. Have a little listen to her story and what hope means to her.

Getting excited about tomorrow 

We hope the thought, that you can be a Worker of Hope got you excited. Who in your life, needs your help? Maybe it means serving your community, calling your family, or breaking through cynicism by staying constructive.

In case you want to do something good by buying your new spring outfit, feel free to check out our store, maybe you'll find your new, favourite fashion staple.
