Founded in 2016 by internationally acclaimed artist and designer Johny Dar, Jeans For Refugees (jeansforrefugees.com) is a global initiative dedicated to helping refugees worldwide. More than 100 international celebrities have handed over a pair of their denims to Dar, who transforms each pair into a unique wearable art piece inspired by the celebrity who donated them. From Hollywood A-listers Ryan Gosling and Sharon Stone to Harry Styles, Emma Watson and many others, the stars have aligned and joined forces to create this unique initiative in support of refugees. With all proceeds going to the International Rescue Committee (IRC), the project helps to fund initiatives which help millions of refugees worldwide on a daily basis, helping to restore health, safety, education, economic wellbeing and power to people devastated by conflict and disaster.
