Brands You Will Be Proud To Wear

Shopping is a necessity for everyone, but we can make our own "necessity" a source of light and happiness for others helping them obtain the true need, health. While many top brands such as Versace and Michael Kors have given portions of their funds to charitable organizations there are many other smaller fashion brands that devote their business to greater causes. 

Started by Ethiopian born super model Liya Kebede, Lemlem is not a regular clothing brand instead it is a source of hope. Lemlem, meaning flourish or bloom, keeps the traditional weavers of Ethiopia from losing their jobs and to preserve the art of weaving. In addition to that Liya is trying to better the conditions for women during childbirth to save the mother's and child's life. The website includes women's & kid's clothing, accessories, and  home ware with a relaxed boho feel(& a lot of stripes). 

Warby Parker
Warby Parker is a source to buy optical and sun wear for men and women, but what sets them apart is for every pair of glasses sold they donate to their non-profit partners. Theses people then educate men and women about giving basic eye exams and selling glasses at affordable prices in developing countries. This gives the people of the country an opportunity to earn a living and make decisions based on the needs and desires of the community. 

There are plenty more brands out there making a difference with each purchase, it is up to you to take a part in this incredible opportunity.
