About the Shop
The Special Olympics Shop is the digital shop of the Special Olympics World Games. These will take place in Berlin for the first time in 2023. It is the biggest inclusive sporting event in the world and together we can achieve great things. Together with you, we want to eliminate prejudices, tear down walls and break down barriers so that a stronger togetherness in society and a greater awareness of inclusion can emerge.
This starts with us in the Special Olympics Shop. Wear t-shirts, hoodies, caps or many other items from our shop and help us get our message out there. This way we can draw attention to the Special Olympics and gain more recognition in society.
The following three values are especially important to us:
1. Sustainability, Quality and Style
We strive to have our products produced as sustainably as possible. This means that we look for producers who offer sustainable or environmentally friendly products and fabrics.
We show you by symbols on the respective product what this product is particularly sustainable for.
Sustainability also means quality and durability. We want you to be able to wear our T-shirts for many years to come and enjoy being reminded of the Special Olympics.
And of course you should also like the products. That's why we work with great experts and designers - so that together we can be stylish and fun #UnbeatableTogether.
2. Made with Love
"Let there be love in all four corners." This saying also applies to our online shop. Loving and fair manufacturing of our products go hand in hand.
Many of the products you will find in our shop have been produced in Berlin workshops by people with disabilities especially for Special Olympics.
Whether sewn, pottered or cast - there was always a lot of love and passion involved in the production. We are very happy to be able to offer you this wide selection.
3. Social Business
The Special Olympic World Games are a social business. This means that all proceeds stay within the company and are used for the World Games and the athletes.
Every purchase directly supports the athletes and the Special Olympics movement and causes great joy.
And again in other words: every euro you spend in our shop goes directly to the good cause of the Special Olympics.
This way, we can offer even better deals for the athletes and visitors to the World Games. And if you would like to support the Special Olympics additionally, you can also donate money and get a donation receipt for it. If you would like to make a donation, please send an email to email@example.com.
