"For it is in giving that we receive."
Francis of Assisi 

I couldn't agree more. We are at our best when we acknowledge our capacity of being useful for society, caring and compassionate. Fashion Industry has not ignore this fact and has shown thru many instances and in many ways that it cares. It cares for the poor, the abandoned, the hungry, the neglected, the education of our children, the sick, and the list goes on and gets very long.

I must admit that not often I did think about how fashion is involve in charity but came across an article about model Liya Kebede and the brand she founded, Lemlem, that helps economic growth in Ethiopia. I got curious and wanted to know what other companies have similar practices. I learned that an L.A. Based company, Shop Gado Gado, donates to school uniforms for children in need from the profits of their necklaces. Another organization is the Fashion For a Cause Foundation based in Nevada and supporting the Leukimia and Lymphoma local Society as well as the Nevada Blind Children Foundation ..... well as I said the list goes on, fortunately.

As a buyer I know now that I have an option to help while I shop and with some research I know I can probably find some of  my buys from companies that help others. We can call this 'buying with a purpose' and it is for sure, an additional excuse to go shopping :)

The truth is that most of the world's population is in some type of need so,  i t is nice to help when we can. I will like to hear from you: Do you make an habitual practice to buy from charitable companies? Do you know any fashion brands or companies that donate to charity? Please share with us here by leaving your comment with the name of those brands. Spreading the word is another way to help.

Hope you are all having a great, happy week.
