Models coming together in the name of charitable art? Talk about more than a pretty face.

Having noted that models absorb massive amounts of creativity day in and day out (by way of photographers, stylists, and otherwise), model Edythe Hughes decided that not only was a creative outlet in order – but that it could be used to benefit the greater good. (And she was right.)

Enter: Project Model Tee (PMT), a line of T-shirts boasting models’ original art. The nonprofit organization actively recruits models to lend their designs, with an end-goal of raising money for various causes. As an additional fundraising initiative, PMT hosts events around New York City to bring more awareness to a spotlighted charity. Currently, PMT’s efforts are dedicated to raising funds for the Rape, Abuse, and Incest National Network (RAINN), the country’s largest anti-sexual violence organization.

Expect the one-of-a-kind tees to be made available to the public at the organization’s official launch party, scheduled for February 2013, and from there, online and in stores.

For more information on PMT’s events, initiatives, and more, be sure to check out both their website  and their Facebook page.
