Alexa Chung raises funds for endometriosis research

In celebration of International Women’s Day 2021, ALEXACHUNG has partnered with the World Endometriosis Research Foundation (WERF), on a limited-edition t-shirt to raise vital funds for research into this disease and drive awareness of the challenges faced by sufferers in receiving diagnosis and treatment.

Launching this International Women’s Day 8 March, the ALEXACHUNG limited edition ‘Emmeline’ t-shirt pays homage to leading British women’s rights activist Emmeline Pankhurst, one of the most extraordinary and inspiring figures in feminist history.

Available to buy in two colour iterations of pale pink or yellow, 100% of profits from the sales of the t-shirt will be donated to the World Endometriosis Research Foundation to advance their invaluable work on endometriosis research.

 

Endometriosis research and awareness

Alexa Chung, Creative Director of ALEXACHUNG said of the collaboration

I’m so pleased to partner with WERF on this project. The idea that we might be able to in some small way help with the work towards finally understanding this omnipresent, disruptive disease makes me feel genuinely happy.

Lone Hummelshoj, Executive Director of WERF said

It is wonderful when those with endometriosis and a platform to talk about it, like Alexa, take constructive action to contribute to improving the lives of fellow sufferers. We need research to understand endometriosis and develop targeted treatments.

Research costs money. With ALEXACHUNG partnering with WERF to donate the proceeds from the sale of this t-shirt, we are one step closer to raising the funds that are needed to progress our discovery work of preventing endometriosis in the next generation.
