Australians for Palestine designed the popular t-shirts used in the annual Run for Palestine held in Melbourne, Adelaide, Sydney, Perth & Hobart.
The white t-shirts feature a version of Handala the much-loved iconic faceless refugee child first created by Palestinian artist and cartoonist Naji Al Ali. The logo was designed by artist Dora McPhee for Run for Palestine. The text reads: RUN FOR PALESTINIAN HUMAN RIGHTS.
The t-shirts are unisex and come in two types: normal white cotton and the Dri-FIT t-shirt preferred by runners. Both t-shirts carry the Run for Palestine logo.

FUNDS RAISED MELBOURNE
Olive Kids is an Australian registered foundation that seeks to facilitate financial support, education & medical assistance to Palestinian children. Founded in 2007, Olive Kids is run by passionate volunteers from a range of professions.
As a consequence of the occupation, Palestinian children are robbed of their childhood. They suffer emotionally, physically and psychologically – deeply impacting their progress and development.
Under occupation in Palestine or in the refugee camps, the living conditions deny these young kids the very basic rights of security, health care, access to education, freedom of movement and basic infrastructure. Generations of young children are forced to mature at a young age, traumatised by their daily experiences. In effect, these kids live no childhood at all.
