About Jeans For Refugees


Jeans For Refugees is a unique art and fashion collection by Johny Dar, dedicated to supporting refugees worldwide.  The initiative is simple: Celebrities donate their jeans.  Johny Dar paints them.  The Jeans For Refugees are exhibited and sold to raise funds for the International Rescue Committee.

More than 100 celebrities have donated their jeans for the cause, and Dar’s painting on each pair is a dynamic expression inspired by the individual that donated them - an artistic tribute to their former celebrity owner.   

Funds raised help to sustain IRC initiatives worldwide, bringing much-needed aid to people displaced by man-made and natural disasters like war and famine. 

The Jeans For Refugees can be framed, worn, collected or given as a meaningful, unforgettable gift.  Owning a pair of Jeans For Refugees is more than owning an art investment, or a piece of celebrity memorabilia - it is safeguarding a symbol of hope for a brighter future for humanity.  By participating in Jeans For Refugees, you are helping to support refuges worldwide.

Buy your favourite pair of Jeans For Refugees today - because every life deserves a chance.

Jeans For Refugees started as a humble dream of wanting to make a difference through what I can do, on a personal level, which is painting those jeans - and the rest was only possible through the generous souls that have contributed to this project.  I am honoured and humbled to be a part of this, and grateful to everyone who is supporting this initiative.  Your support really means the world, and means a lot to the world, because by coming together for a common cause, great change is possible.’
