Unity Day: Nov 12, 2021
A new holiday uniting the Sub-Continent around one act of kindness
Many People. Many Cultures. One Goal: Unity
For 3 years Subtle Curry Traits has been a private gathering of nearly 1 Million sub-continental people. A place where we gather and laugh. It's time to bring that gathering into the physical world. So our team decided to create a holiday to be celebrated annually to encourage us to gather and to do one act of kindness in our community. Unity day is a celebration of the diversity and unity of the peoples and cultures in the Sub-Continent.
3 Reasons Why We Started Unity Day
- To remind all that they are welcome. Your place of birth, wealth of family, religious beliefs or what you look like don’t define who you are. We are all human and all deserve a chance to thrive and share our story. No matter who you are, you belong here.
- To learn from the past. Indian’s, Pakistani’s, Bangladeshi’s & a host of other communities from South Asia you could previously never put them in the same room! We are re-writing the old mindsets & breaking unforgiveness of generations gone past. We are creating a new culture as we make room to learn & celebrate our differences across South Asia.
- To create a bright future. We envision a new tomorrow where South Asian brothers and sisters unite to solve issues in the motherland and beyond. We realise that together we are stronger, and our differences are what make us the same. Simple human beings.
United to bring clean water to Bangladesh
Charity Water is one of the most impactful not for profits in the world with a massive presence in South Asia. We have partnered to radically change the lives of a community in Bangladesh, a nation that is close to our hearts & many in our community. This project will help build a “New Piped Tap Stand” at a School to impact the lives of 500 people! To see this reality, we need to raise $10,000 together. This will be our ultimate opportunity to come together and be united behind a tangible cause. You can support the project by purchasing the unity day merch or simply donating directly to the campaign.

100% Merch net profits will be donated to our well project
To hit our $10K target and successfully see the 500 lives changed, we are donating 100% of all Profits from our new unity merch line to go straight to the field. Note that Charity Water is a not for profit that gives 100% of its donations directly to the field with generous donors who pay overheads and look after staff. In faith we say this is the 1st of many projects we do together, and we are excited around the tangible difference in the motherland we make as we band together. We are bringing in an external auditor to ensure the funds go directly from you purchases/donations straight to the field.
Story behind the Unity logo design
The three flowers featured in the design are the lotus (national flower of India), Water Lilly (national flower of Sri Lanka & Bangladesh) & the jasmine (national flower of Pakistan). They are all included in the same design to symbolise unity among the motherlands as we use the merch to help our family in Bangladesh. The circle design is to highlight the wholistic approach we must take together & always be united to be unstoppable as we solve issues in the motherlands and abroad.
Quality Garments You'll Be Proud To Wear
We have partnered with the best for our unity merch. Champion. Established in 1919 it is one the most sought-after apparel brands in the world & has been responsible for pioneering many well-known designs in the sporting and lifestyle markets. Our unity deserves the best and we created merch pieces that would stand the test of time and be worn for years to come, reminding us of the importance we each must play in being united. You can purchase our Unity merch in a sweater or t-shirt design with the champion logo being on the sleeve. This is the perfect piece to wear or gift someone whilst supporting the Water projects.
