Harry Styles selling t-shirt to raise money for COVID-19 relief

Following in the footsteps of Rita Ora, Harry Styles has released a t-shirt to help fight COVID-19. All profits from sales of said t-shirt will be donated to the World Health Organisation COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund.

The simple design reads: “Stay home. Stay safe. Protect each other”. Once you have it, you can proudly wear it out in public so that everyone gets the message. Of course, you will have failed to follow the slogan across your own chest, but if two people immediately go home after seeing it, that’s a result, your work is done. Plus, someone will take your photo and post an angry message on social media, so that’s another way to get the message out.

All that said, it will be a while before you can actually start spreading the message. Styles’ website says that the t-shirts will not begin shipping for four to six weeks. And, who knows, maybe by then we won’t be on quite so strict a lockdown as we are now. Then it’ll be fine to go around telling people via the medium of t-shirt to ‘stay home’. It’s just they won’t need to stay home. All in all, it’s a fool proof system!

Of course, the important thing is that buying this shirt will send money straight to the effort to fight COVID-19. And with the US way behind with its WHO membership payments – thanks to Donald Trump’s dislike of anything related to the UN – the organisation certainly needs the money. So, Harry’s doing good work. In fact, I don’t care for your cynical tone at all. Go away cynics!

And just think, you could get years of wear out of this item of clothing. With the added bonus that, the more time passes, the less sense its slogan will make. Buy it here.
