'Tis the season to be stylish. The weather is cold, the wind is blowing and now's the time to show off all the layers, colors and textures to the world. The parties are stacking and the drink nights are booming... but ever think 'what about those who aren't so fortunate?' There are tons of people (& animals) who have no idea who James Perse is, Lanvin or that a sample sale comes once a year. There are tons of people in the world who are suffering so much and we can't take the time out to realize this as we're running through stores and open warehouses trying to find our size in the perfect dress or pant. This part of the year, especially, all those who are fortunate should really reflect and give back to those who have not been so "lucky." There are a million ways one can give back... and it doesn't matter with whom you share your "luck", just make sure that you do.
The only way to happiness is by bringing joy to others and making others happy!
Please check out the list below of some Charities, Non-Profits and Foundations that could really use a little bit of "luck" this Holiday Season.
