our story

 HALF UNITED is in business to end global hunger using fashion. For every HALF UNITED product that you purchase, YOU give 7 meals to a child in need! HU was founded in 2009 by brother/sister duo Christian and Carmin Black, with only $200 and a passion to change the lives of people in need.  To date, HALF UNITED's customers have provided over 600,000 meals for children in need in the USA, Fiji, Cambodia, Liberia, Nepal and Haiti!


"HALF UNITED" means that YOU are doing your half by uniting with other like-minded people to fight the good fight to end world hunger. 


how we give

STEP 1

You purchase from HALF UNITED, and proudly wear your fight against hunger!

STEP 2

The cost of 7 meals is built into the cost of each product. For every HU product YOU purchase, our book keeper puts that giving amount into our giving fund.

STEP 3

At the end of each quarter, we equally divide that fund between our 4 giving partners in the USA, Fiji, Haiti, and Cambodia, to provide food for children in need.
