Fashionably Charitable: Look Great While Giving Back

Buying fashion products has never felt so good! There are tons of companies out there that have teamed up with awesome charities and agreed to give back to a good cause. There are so many different accessories and clothing you can buy for an affordable price that donate a percentage of the money spent. Don’t waste any time, it’s time to shop for a cause!

Toms Shoes is one of the more famous companies, donating a pair of brand new shoes to a child in need whenever one is purchased. You’ve probably seen students sporting this brand on campus because they’re super comfy and available in tons of different colors. Many department stores sell the shoe, and they even make shoes for guys so everyone can join the movement.

For all those book lovers out there, Out of Print is perfect for you. Products such as totes, shirts, and phone cases are made with famous book covers and sold at a reasonable price. The company then donates a book to a community in need. The products are a way to express your fashion in a different way!

Another great fashion product that is slowly gaining more recognition is Pura Vida Bracelets. Celebrities like Lauren Conrad have been spotted sporting Pura Vida Bracelets that come in tons of different colors, braided, or with beads, and look great layered. The product helps local artisans from Costa Rica, and they even have a charity collection that donates $1 of the purchase to over 60 various charities. These bracelets are affordable and the bright colors are great for the summertime.

These are only a few of the many companies and products out there. It’s amazing to be a part of these awesome causes that give back not only with money, but also with basic necessities. Take the time to browse these websites and see what you fall in love with. I guarantee you will!
