The new Festive Holiday Underwear Collection from Pact brings light not just to your skivvies but to those who need it most. Featuring three festive patterns designed by Yves Behar and his team at Fuseproject , with every purchase the brand donates a handheld, solar LED lantern to Haitian earthquake victims in Port Au Prince.

Over half of Port-au-Prince's inhabitants report that they feel unsafe at night, in part a result of Haiti's lack of streetlights and general energy scarcity. Pact’s lantern donations will increase the security of Haitian families, especially women living in the city's more vulnerable areas.

"We could not imagine a more worthwhile cause this holiday season than helping provide access to a basic resource—like light—to the people in Haiti," said Jason Kibbey, CEO of Pact. "The fact that a Pact underwear purchase can directly provide a family in Haiti with a solar lantern, and all the benefits light provides, is an honor."

The Holiday Collection is the result of a partnership between Pact and the non-profit Earthspark and Citizen Effect's Light Up Haiti Campaign.

The collection ranges from $18-$26 on their Pact's site.
