NEW YORK, July 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- MISSION®, the leading performance apparel and accessories brand with a singular focus on temperature control technologies and their brand ambassador, Platinum-recording artist and Oscar nominated actress, Hailee Steinfeld, jumpstarted an inspiring charitable initiative today with the release of the "What's Your Mission?" graphic t-shirt. Designed to inspire everyone to find their mission, $5 from every purchase of every tee will benefit Children's Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA). The limited edition, cropped tee features hand-designed graphics by cutting-edge artist Ashish Patel.
On a mission of her own, Steinfeld inspires many through her music and movies to find their voice and push for what they believe in. It is because of this mission that she is also inspired by the dedicated staff of professionals who create hope and build healthier futures for kids and families at Children's Hospital Los Angeles, and one of the reasons she became a MISSION Brand Ambassador this past April. "I've been a longtime supporter of the amazing work and services Children's Hospital of Los Angeles provides for families and children in need. I hope with this MISSION partnership, everyone can be inspired and motivated to extend their own hand in service of others." says Steinfeld.
MISSION was founded with a dual purpose of pioneering innovative products to empower performance and comfort and inspiring everyone to fulfill their own personal dreams and missions, no matter how big or small. The brand regularly works with its roster of celebrity and athlete brand ambassadors to support individuals, families, and communities in need. "We are a blended-value company. We pride ourselves on "doing well, while doing good"," explained Josh Shaw, Founder and CEO of MISSION. "We are beyond excited to collaborate with Hailee on the "What's Your Mission?" campaign, to help support Hailee's passion and inspire all of those around us to find and achieve their own mission. We all have a mission in life, and it's our mission to support yours." Scott Birnbaum, CMO at MISSION, elaborated on the program, stating, "We created the "What's Your Mission?" tee to raise awareness and support for the great work going on at Children's Hospital Los Angeles. We are proud to partner with Hailee to inspire everyone to chase their own mission and to help make a difference for those who need it most."
