Feel Good Friday – Janji Running Apparel

feel good friday janji running apparel
There are many marathons that benefit charities, but usually the charity ends at the finish line. Janji founders Mike Burnstein and Dave Sandorfer (who are only 25 and 24 by the way) wanted to change that, so in June of 2012 they launched their running apparel line that helps fight the worldwide food and water crisis. Now every day can be a run for a cause!

Working with key charities around the world, Janji (which means ‘promise’ in Malay) strives to make a difference not just in a vague donation but to specific small non profits such as their partnership with the Helen Keller International organization. Each piece sold from their Bangladesh apparel line provides two seasons worth of seeds for a family. And yes, they know we have these same hunger issues in America so their Boston Letterpress tee is linked to the Greater Boston Food Bank and each tee gives eight meals to a Bostonian in need.

Janji has apparel for guys and gals (take note, sizes run small so as a medium I ordered a large for a perfect fit). Since it is a running line there is a reflective logo on the back for added visibility. We are also fans of their running shorts that come in great colors (some reflecting colors of flags such as the Haiti middle shorts) but avoid the neon craze. They even have a little zippered back pocket for keys or a credit card.

Next time you are in the need for some new running gear, stock up with Janji and make a difference while looking slick.
