Over the past three years we have built and refined a brand that stands for the importance of people and the connection they have with one another, this year we are going one step further to prove how the power of collaboration on any level can be an incredibly powerful tool to do great things.
Who are we?
We are Soul Purpose, set up by two friends who wanted to change the face of the christian clothing scene and offer high quality, ethical clothing that brings people together and gets them talking about the things that are important to them and how they can make a difference. Since then the response to what we have been doing has been sensational and we are dying to give you more!
Who are they?
With each series we develop we donate £2 pounds of every sale to a different cause. This enables us to meet new people, explore and be inspired by the incredible work they do and then champion their good works, both supporting them financially and giving them a new platform from which to share their message.
The first in this years set of three collaborations is Benjamin J Howard aka. Kingdom Rapper.
We have had the pleasure of knowing and supporting this incredible tallent since the day we started and have since grown a strong partnership and admiration for one another's ministry.
KR is a passionate soul with a real heart for God. His story is one of true transformation and the ways in which God is working through him are plain to see. To hear Kingdom Rapper for yourself head to the link below and download his latest album completely for free! Album artwork by yours truly and beautifully in keeping with this very Crowdfunded collaboration.
What are we doing?
Each crowd funded collaboration is based around the message of those we work with and how that relates to our faith. We are producing one key item on which to focus each Crowdfunder and then all following funding will be feed into expanding the range and developing additional lines that will further help to support the work of the individual and play a part in our mission to help 'christian clothing' stand for high quality, people focused, authentic products.
The key focus of this range will be a set of head wear directly influenced by KR's love of hats! You will have the choice of either a classic 'Dad hat' or our flat peaked snap back. Each embroidered with our unique and inspired 'carrier pigeon' design.
What does it mean?
KR's message focuses on that found in Romans 10:14-15
How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? And how can anyone preach unless they are sent? As it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!"
The pegeon, inspired by KR's urban routes, has been used for centuries to deliver important messages and has saved hundreds of lives, namely in the first and second world wars, with the valuable messages they carried.
We felt that this reflected the essence of this passage beautifully as well as the work KR is doing. Reminding us that no matter how ordinary or unqualified we might feel. We all have an important mission to carry this message.
What difference will it make?
We want to inspire intrigue and connections through the designs we produce. The stories we have heard over the course of our 3 years, and experienced first hand, have been a huge encouragement to us and reminder that the smallest action can make a difference.
Joel, an avid SP support told us:
Hey man, today a girl asked me about the King of Kings top I was wearing and I was able to explain it to her and witness just a tiny bit to her in a completely random situation I otherwise wouldn’t have been comfortable doing. Just thought I’d let you know to encourage you that the vision of starting conversations WORKS! and is helping people who wear your stuff witness the love of Jesus. Praying you guys have an amazing 2018, looking forward to lots of quality new stuff
If this reward wasn't enough, we also have the privileged of offering financial support to enable those we collaborate with. Our last series has already raised nearly £1200 for the fantastic work Change for Change do to help individuals in third world counties set up their own businesses and become self sufficient.
