The brand targets HIV Prevention, educating children in Darfur, Haiti, and was initially launched after White's personal family experience with Hurricane Katrina. Today, Human Intonation is included in the January 2012 issue of Uptown Magazine in the "We're Talking About" feature for both its fashionable give back and White’s burgeoning entrepreneurship.
On-going success will allow Human Intonation to continue to use fashion as a medium to bring light to social & human rights issues that do not receive constant coverage in the media. While the brand has connected with non-profits including HandsOn New Orleans, the Darfur Peace & Development Org, and Advocates for Youth, Human Intonation’s space in fashion also provides a platform for White to conduct programming catering to HIV/AIDS prevention at the local level.
Uptown Magazine first supported Human Intonation in the summer of 2010 as a sponsor of the brand’s annual fashion show & fundraiser, "The NEW Purpose of Fashion". “Len has become a supporter of Human Intonation over the last few years and I am ecstatic for Uptown's on-going support of the work that we do", says White of Burnett and his team.
