Staple Pigeon is joining in on the fight for racial equality and social justice by announcing a limited-time charity event happening right now.
A raffle was shared on both Jeff Staple’s and his Staple brand’s Instagram accounts yesterday revealing that he has tapped fellow designers and friends Hiroshi Fujiwara of Fragment Design and Futura2000 to donate items for the event.
Fujiwara relinquished his coveted Fragment x Air Jordan 1 High collab in a size 11.5, which is reselling for around $3,000 on StockX. Futura offered up his FL-001 Pointman Figure from his Generation Z Exhibition in Tokyo, which was limited to only six pieces. Three pairs of sneakers will be up for grabs from Staple including the Nike SB Dunk Low “Panda Pigeon” in the limited-edition bamboo box, the Sabotage x Staple “Pigeon Fury” Nike Air Force 1 Low, and the never before released 1-of-1 Nike Dunk High “Black Pigeon” made by Garrixon Studios.
A donation page is currently live on Staplepigeon.com with a minimum of $5 serving as five raffle tickets and up to $100 for 100 entries. A collaborative “Black Lives Matter” charity T-shirt was also created for this event and is only available until tomorrow. The T-shirt retails for $40 and serves as 40 raffle tickets. According to the account, 100% of the proceeds will be shared between the American Civil Liberties Union, the Equal Justice Initiative and Art Start organizations.

Our path towards helping to fight racism is a two-prong plan: 1. Short-Term. Immediate. Impactful. 2. Long-Term. Persistent. Committed. We will announce our long term plans in the coming weeks. Here’s what we’re doing right now. We have teamed up for a triple OG collection of items from our friends, Hiroshi Fujiwara/Fragment (@fujiwarahiroshi) & Futura2000 (@futuradosmil). BLACK CULTURE has inspired & supported Hiroshi, Lenny & Staple since day one. We stand in solidarity with the fight for justice & equality, & hope this action plants the seeds for the next generation of Black Leaders in our community. • To raise funds & awareness for the cause, we are organizing a charity raffle & launching a special “BLACK LIVES MATTER” tee created by Futura2000. It will be available for presale for only 48 hours starting Wed June 10th 1pm EST. 100% of the proceeds will be shared between the ACLU (@aclu_nationwide), EJI (@eji_org) & Art Start (@artstartorg). • From Hiroshi Fujiwara: A personal pair of Fragment x Nike Air Jordan 1s. (Size 11.5) From Futura: The FL-001 Pointman Figure from his Generation Z Exhibition in Tokyo. Only 6 pieces have ever been publicly available. From Staple (@staplepigeon): A 3-Pack of Grails – The Lasered Nike SB Panda Pigeon Dunk in the Limited Edition Bamboo Box. The Sabotage (@mr_sabotage) x Staple “Pigeon Fury” AF1. And a never before released 1 of 1 Black Pigeon Dunk High made by Garrixon Studios (@garrixonstudio). (All Size 10) • Here’s how it works: Every dollar you donate counts as one “raffle ticket” towards winning your item of choice. A $5 minimum donation = 5 raffle tickets. A $100 donation = 100 raffle tickets. A $500 donation = 500 raffle tickets, etc. The tee is $40 & purchasing one tee represents 40 raffle tickets. When checking out, you can indicate which item you’d like to receive if chosen. There will be 3 winners chosen, one for each prize. If you don’t want any of the items, you can still donate & 100% of that will go to the orgs mentioned above. Or please consider donating directly to an organization of your choice. Thank you for your support. Stay informed. Stay smart. And stay safe. PEACE! 🕊 #BlackLivesMatter
