Where To Buy 'Je Suis Charlie' Buttons, T-Shirts, & Bracelets To Show Your Support
After a terrorist attack on Charlie Hebdo killed 12 people in France, many have taken to showing explicit support for the victims and for the newspaper. The phrase "Je Suis Charlie," which translates to "I am Charlie," quickly began not only trending on Twitter but also became a physical presence. At the Golden Globes, George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin wore "Je Suis Charlie" buttons on the red carpet, as did a number of celebrities. Kevin Séraphin, a French basketball player on the Washington Wizards team, wore a "Je Suis Charlie" t-shirt during warmups before a game against the Chicago Bulls.
The phrase has become a powerful message for those who want to honor the victims by standing with Charlie Hebdo. And though there has been some criticism accusing retailers of trying to profit from a tragedy by selling apparel with the logo, Etsy retailer Danica Harcourt told CNN Money that was never the intent.
Our goal was never to profit from the sale of these t-shirts but to help raise awareness to help support the French population.
