Coldplay has teamed with the search-and-rescue organization MOAS to sell an "I Am You" t-shirt that will benefit MOAS and encourage buyers to consider their fellow man and woman. "The ethos behind the statement is to encourage us all to widen our circle of compassion and remember that we are all one and the same," reads a statement announcing the sale of the $24.95 shirt, which will ship starting May 8.

MOAS (Migrant Offshore Aid Station) is a Malta-based foundation dedicated to preventing loss of life as refugees and migrants attempt to cross often treacherous stretch of sea to escape persecution and hardship. To date, the organization claims to have saved more than 30,000 people from dying along the world's most dangerous maritime migration routes.
