“In response to Abercrombie & Fitch CEO Mike Jeffries not wanting “not so cool” kids or women who wear size large to wear his company’s clothes, Greg Karber has come up with a funny and creative way to readjust the Abercrombie & Fitch brand.
He’s giving their clothes to the homeless.
After scouring his local thrift shop’s “douchebag section,” Karber heads to LA’s Skid Row to dole out the clothes among the homeless population. Watch the stunt and find out how you can be involved in one man’s troll-job on a company with some pretty unflattering business practices in the video above.”
I’m just a girl from a small town. I always have been. I always will be. I wasn’t born in the sprawling city. I wasn’t born anywhere near the ocean. I had lived in the same house my whole life, walked down the same backroads to school, looked out the same windows and saw the same scene of fields after fields every single day. And if you’re one of the lucky ones, you love where you’ve grown up & you never want to leave. But for me, I always felt like I never really fit in there. I had no idea where I belonged. But I knew it wasn’t there. So as you grow up there is a small part of you that feels a little empty. There is a small part of you that just isn’t satisfied, but you learn to live with it. To ignore it. And honestly, when my parents came into my room and told me we were leaving for the whole summer when I was 15, I didn’t want to go. I didn’t want to leave my hometown because I had pushed these feelings of not belonging and not being satisfied deep down and learned how to settle. So they dragged my unwillingly bratty self on the 7 hour drive down south for the summer. I remember driving down PCH and rolling the windows down, sticking my head straight out and just looking at everything in awe. I had never seen a place so alive. And I remember yanking my bags out of the car, looking up at this beautiful house looming over me, never knowing that one day this would be home. I look back on my life & God has done some amazing things but nothing will ever compare to bringing me to this place. I learned to surf in these waters and I spent hours sitting on this pier watching the waves and laughing with my friends and crying when I just needed to cry for a moment and I fell in love on that bench and I walked through those doors of that house with some of the heaviest heartache but also some of the biggest smiles on my face. I thank God every day for this place. This place was the start of everything. And you may feel stuck where you are at, you may feel like you will never leave and you will never be truly satisfied. But there is a place in this world that is meant just for you. And the moment you get there, you’ll just know.
