Be Positive Is a streetwear clothing brand that aims to raise awareness of the need for blood and organ donation whilst raising funds for the Children’s Liver Disease foundation. 50% of the profits from the sale of all B+ merchandise goes straight to the CLDF.
‘B+’ is the legacy of Mollie Barton who passed away in 2015 whilst waiting for a liver transplant that unfortunately never came. The inspiration for the brand name comes from Mollie’s blood type B+, the sir name Barton, Birmingham Children’s Hospital where she was cared for and the ethos and motto that surrounded Mollie’s battle – to ‘be positive’ and remain hopeful throughout.
So far the ‘B+’ message has reached all 4 corners of the world including London, Times Square, Hawaii, Boston, Vienna, Bali, New Zealand, The Maldives – the list goes on! And through spreading this love we have raised almost £20,000 for the CLDF. Check out the @bpositive_mollie Instagram page to see where we’ve been!
Ultimately, the ‘B+’ brand wishes to encourage everyone to turn adversity into positivity and to spread that love and hope around the world – an attitude which Mollie embodied and inspired in everyone she met. Where will your ‘B+’ journey take you?
