Los Angeles, CA – DJ Khaled, French Montana and Jhené Aiko have teamed up with the American Cancer Society for the Get #YOUnited campaign.
As part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the trio has joined actress Kristin Chenoweth, breast cancer survivor Nalie Agustin and fashion designer Kerby Jean-Raymond to design exclusive t-shirts in support of breast cancer patients, survivors and others affected by the disease.
Each celebrity ambassador has also created a public service announcement and team for the ACS. Khaled’s team is fittingly named Team We The Best while Montana and Agustin’s has been dubbed Team Unforgettable.
“Someone near and dear to me was recently affected by breast cancer,” Khaled said in a press release. “I had to step up and do my part to help those fighting this disease. We are all in this together. Let’s make a difference.”
Montana added, “I met my friend Nalie several years ago when she was battling cancer and did the dance challenge to ‘Unforgettable.’ She’s an inspiration to me, always positive and always smiling. That’s why ‘Thriver’ best describes her. This is my gift to her and the others out there living with breast cancer.”
The campaign and t-shirts are aimed at generating donations for the organization’s fight against cancer. Proceeds from shirt sales will go to breast cancer research and a 24/7 cancer helpline as well as other support for cancer patients such as providing free rides to treatment and access to wigs.
For Aiko, Get #YOUnited isn’t her first philanthropic effort for the ACS. The Def Jam singer/songwriter has teamed with the organization once again to be the ambassador for Team Yagi-san.
“It’s an honor to work with the ACS again,” she said. “I wanted to create something personal for my ‘Team Yagi-san’ in memory of my brother and those affected by this disease. I partnered with my good friend Kerby Jean-Raymond to design something special.”
