As we all know Chicago has been plagued with gun violence for the last few years and the city needs as much help as possible.

Case-Mate, the international design company known for creating fashion-forward mobile accessories, announced it has created an exclusive portfolio of art-inspired smartphone cases for AT&T to help benefit Chicago’s youth.

AT&T and Case-Mate have partnered with Chicago’s own GRAMMY award winning hip-hop artist and actor COMMON to design the cases. For each case purchased, a $5 donation will be made to support COMMON’s non-profit organization ““ the Common Ground Foundation.

“Growing up in Chicago, the art I was exposed to had an incredible impact on my life,” said COMMON. “It forced me to look at the world through the eyes of others, and inspired me to express myself in creative new ways. I am excited to work with AT&T and Case-Mate to reach more kids and help them discover how their talents can make the world a better place.”

Beginning February 26, six different original Case-Mate designs, inspired by urban murals, mosaics, graffiti, and sculptures; will be on display for purchase in AT&T’s Chicago flagship store at 600 N. Michigan Avenue, 45 AT&T retail stores across the greater Chicagoland area, and online at ATT.com. Smartphone case designs will be available for the iPhone 4/4S, iPhone 5, and Samsung Galaxy S3.

“The Common Ground Foundation has made a huge impact on Chicago,” said Shashi Reddy, Case-Mate CEO. “We are pleased to partner with AT&T and the Common Ground Foundation to channel the powerful ethos of Chicago’s art scene in a way that benefits its youth.”

“AT&T is excited to collaborate with Case-Mate in support of the Common Ground Foundation’s efforts to benefit our local youth,” said AT&T Chicago Area Manager Christina Cheng. “These specialty phone cases are a unique way that our customers can help make a difference in our local community, and we are honored to play a part in that.”
