Roc Nation Clothing Brand Paper Planes Releases A Capsule Dedicated To Haiti

Planes
On December 19th, 2019, Paper Planes, a brand founded by Jay-Z & his friend/business partner Emory Jones, announced its limited-edition collection entitled “Global Warning: Haiti”. The collection consists of their infamous SnapBack hat, which features the coat of arms & the word “Haiti” on the back.

Also included in the collection is a logo hoodie & t-shirt which features different aspects of Haitian culture within the logo.

The clothing brand is an international one that occasionally pays homage to countries & aims to give back in a meaningful way. This time around a portion of all proceeds from the collection will go towards a nonprofit organization called FBLA Haiti. The organization is a chapter within the larger nonprofit FBLA-PBL (Future Business Leaders of America), & their aim is to equip & educate young Haitian students with the business knowledge so that knowledge can then be used to create change back home.

“Learning a world outside of your own is a game-changer” a quote from Emory Jones, & since August 2011, FBLA Haiti has helped over 150 Haitian students travel to the United States to compete in academic competitions.
