OHMY is SO HAPPY to present our design contest winner for Clean Water, Kevin Kwok! Check out his "Ripple Effect" T-shirt, where 100% of proceeds will be donated to Charity: Water, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that provides clean and safe drinking water to people in developing nations. Proceeds from this T-shirt will directly fund water projects on the ground, such as safe and clean drinking water wells in villages, health clinics, and schools around the world.
Always a designer first and a coder second, Kevin is a graphic designer with a focus on interaction design and currently works at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory as an Interface and Graphic Design Intern. He is also an avid follower of technology and a Star Wars fanatic!
Here is a little more from Kevin himself:
"The design contest challenged me to come up with a design that communicates the importance of clean water in countries that are not as lucky as we are. Charity: Water has been doing an amazing job in the past few years and I was happy to lend a hand to OHMY in raising money to benefit the charity's efforts. I created a collage that would form a droplet of water, and it communicates the need for clean water in other countries through the very iconic graphics used to create the entire image.
Specifically, Charity: Water caught my attention because I never realized how much we take simple things such as water for granted. And to know that some unfortunate family had to drink murky brown water (let alone disease ridden and miles away from home) really upset me.
Also, I was drawn to OHMY because of the passion of the two founders. Abby Yip and Jane Han put their hearts and souls into helping people and other charities. They are two of the hardest working, most passionate people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. I thought the idea of OHMY was fun and a great way to reach out and lend a hand to charities around the world.
Just a little something else about myself: I have a dream of working for Google. I run an online campaign called Kevin For Google. No I'm not kidding. Join the journey if you wish: www.kevinforgoogle.com It's just one of many goals I am setting for myself. Don't let anyone tell you that you can't do something. Do what you are passionate about, work hard and eventually things will fall into place."
CONGRATULATIONS to KEVIN KWOK and his RIPPLE EFFECT T-SHIRT DESIGN!
