“We both knew we wanted to start a company that existed to help people and that made interesting and unique clothing,” stated Brian Poage and Emily Sansom, creators of Aloha for People.

“We live in Southern California and Hawaiian style shirts have been very popular lately. We decided to use fabric from Guatemala that is unique and culturally significant to the people. Before we knew it, Aloha for People was born,” stated Aloha for People in an interview with the Matador Messenger.

Aloha for People is an organization that gives to children who don’t have clean water to drink.

How does it work? Basically, every time you buy one of their Hawaiian style shirts, they donate money to the kids who need clean water in Guatemala.

Our goal is to improve the lives of those around us, domestically and abroad. We believe in making stylish, unique Hawaiian style shirts that can help people in need, ” reported Aloha for People

Producing this product helps a number of ways. 1. Using natural hand-woven fabric gives men and women jobs. 2. All of their shirts are made in Downtown Los Angeles. 3. Each shirt profit gives a child clean water for two years.
