In a way, charity is the new luxury, and it’s recently become fashionable to show off a Tom’s tag or FEED logo. It gives people a story to tell and a sense of accomplishment. In fact, Tom’s and FEED partnered a few months back creating a shoe that not only provides a new pair of shoes for a child in need, but also tackles world hunger by funding 12 school meals (it’s still sold on the Tom’s site).
Fashion and philanthropy is a collab that we hope continues to build momentum. Seeing gorgeous young fashionistas and actresses (like Olivia Wilde) use their influence for social awareness is inspiring. To date, FEED has donated over six million dollars and 60 million meals. Keep up the good work, Lauren!
