Grace is a brand that stands for fairness, equality and respect. These values are portrayed in designs that are primarily printed on t-shirts. The illustrations on the t-shirts tell real stories about people that have died unfairly. Some of them died fighting for their rights and others died for things that could have been easily avoided. Grace creates t-shirts as a tribute to all of these "unknown heroes".
Richmond Bessong is the founder of the brand. He decided to create it due to a personal experience. His mother, Grace, passed away in 2011 after her body failed to cope properly due to surgery.
Grace was a woman with extra pounds weight, although her physical appearance was never a problem to her, as she was always happy and full of self-confidence. Things changed radically after the realization that people spoke negatively and made fun with regards to her appearance. As a result, the impact of people’s poor word-of-mouth affected her self-esteem negatively, until the point that she no longer felt good about herself anymore and therefore was no longer the same person again. When she could no longer handle the problem anymore, she chose to undergo a surgical procedure to lose weight, but sadly a few months after the operation, she past away.
This could have been avoided if only we would respect our neighbours the way they are. We never know how bad our words can hurt somebody.
Instead of judging, gossiping and criticizing other people, why don't we look at ourselves first and think whether or not we would like other people to treat us the same way.
It is time to be made aware, it is time for a different world, it is time for Grace.
