Shop for a Cause: Look fabulous while Supporting Amazing Organizations

I'm very excited to share today's post with you guys.  Over the years, I've discovered several fabulous brands who really make an effort to give back.  I'd like to take a moment to tell you all about 7 amazing companies who sell gorgeous items AND support incredible causes.  
Sells:  Gorgeous handmade jewelry & accessories
Ships: worldwide
Supports: post-trafficked women in Asia.  Jenny McGee founded SP in 2006 after seeing the needs of women in exploitation in her city.  Since then, Starfish Project has grown to three locations in Asia, reaching out to hundreds of women each year.  Women who come to work at SP receive dignified employment, counseling, housing, food and vocational training.  
How you can help: purchase their fair trade jewelry, become an advocate and sell their pieces for commission, host a jewelry party, or donate to Starfish Project, a registered 501c3 non-profit.
Sells: fashionable glasses of all sorts
Ships:  free standard shipping + returns
Supports: a nonprofit organization train men and women in developing countries to give basic eye exams and sell glasses to their communities at affordable prices.  They then work hard to spread awareness and make eyecare available to their communities.
How you can help:  purchase a pair of WP glasses.  They tally up the number of glasses sold and make a monthly donation to their nonprofit party, which covers the cost of sourcing that number of glasses. 

Sells: Rainboots
Ships: worldwide
Supports:  Roma Boots Foundation by providing a new pair of rain boots to street children and orphans.  With every pair of Roma Boots sold, a brand new pair (stuffed with educational supplies) is donated to a child in need.  In addition, 10% of all their sale proceeds go to the Roma For All Foundation.
How you can help: Purchase their boots to donate directly to their foundation here to provide educational supplies.

 4.  Vaalbara
Sells:  Unique, vibrant and environmentally conscious bags handcrafted in the USA.
Ships:  free domestic shipping.
Supports:  Surfrider's mission.  A portion of your purchase goes to this wonderful organization to help protect oceans, waves, and beaches.

 5.  Bracha
Sells: one-of-a-kind, handmade jewelry + interior
Ships: worldwide
Supports: A21 Campaign and others who work relentlessly for enslaved women and children around the world. 20% of their proceeds go towards abolishing human trafficking.

 6.  Skyline
Sells: cool socks that represent your hometowns
Ships: worldwide
Supports:  They partner with different organizations like Boys & Girls Clubs, United Way, and Seattle Children's Hospital to name a few.  Socks are one of the most vital and overlooked articles of clothing that people need.  TIME Magazine found that 1 in 50 kids in America are homeless, and many more are living below the poverty line.  With every pair of Skyline Socks purchased oline, a pair is donated to a non-profit program in your city so another kid can keep their feet feeling and looking good.
Additional info:  They design custom socks for events and teams.
 7.  Elegantees
Sells:  Fashionable apparel
Ships: worldwide
Supports: the fight agaisnt human trafficking.  They currently employ 6-10 rescued women consistently.
How you can help:  Purchase their clothing to help them become a big company firmly rooted in the truths of purity and modesty, as well as to help more victims of trafficking become overcomers.  They'd like to eventually compensate their full-time volunteers fairly, as 100% of their company's dividends will be given to non-profits fighting modern-day slaver.

I hope you all enjoyed this post!  I don't usually ask you guys to share my content, but I'd really appreciate a re-post/re-pin/whatever of this article because I strongly believe these amazing brands deserve as much attention as possible.  Are there any brands you guys would like to spotlight?
