Give And Let Give

5 Philanthropic Finds

Happy Thanksgiving Day, Zoe Reporters! While last year we acknowledged this feast-focused holiday by sharing a delectable recipe—read: Rachel’s Beyond Brownies (a personal staff favorite!)—this time around we decided to highlight a very special assortment of gifts that give. After all, what better way to show appreciation for the things you are thankful for than by extending a loving hand to help others?

So before you brave the shopping crowds tomorrow or cash in on epic Cyber Monday deals—which we totally can’t wait to do—keep these philanthropic finds in mind when consulting your shopping list. From a vibrant fall tote to frayed wrap bracelets and fall-perfect skinny jeans, this array of chic-meets-charitable picks is sure to include a stylish something for every individual on your rolodex, yourself included!! Give and let give.

1. Wishbone Necklace ($143) by Jennifer Zeuner: For every 1” Wishbone Necklace sold, Jennifer Zeuner will donate $30 to the Make A Wish Foundation.

2. Guatemala Bag ($45) by FEED: Each ikat-printed tote bag sold will provide 15 school meals through the United Nations World Food Programme.

3. Fabric Wrap Bracelet ($40) by Same Sky: Handmade by women artisans in Rwanda, the purchase of these wrap bracelets—adorned with hand-blown glass beads—and other Same Sky pieces provides employment to HIV-positive women struggling to lift themselves out of poverty.

4. Red and Pink Capsule Collection ($75-$255) by M Missoni for OrphanAid: Proceeds of the sales from this collection will go to OrphanAid Africa, a non-profit that helps to fight childhood disease, hunger and poverty in Ghana.

5. City Year Twill Jeans ($144) by J Brand: 100% of the proceeds of these pencil leg jeans—available in vine, plumberry and apache—will be donated to City Year, a non-profit organization that fights the national high school dropout crisis.
