Giving Back: FEED

I love giving business to companies that support a good cause and FEED is one of them.  Co-founded by Lauren Bush (the niece of former President George W. Bush and the new wife of David Lauren, son of Ralph Lauren.... is she going by Lauren Lauren now?.... I digress); in 2008, this company offers products with a built-in donation that goes to FEEDing hungry children around the globe.  Partnered with the UN World Food Program, FEED has already provided over 50 million meals to school children in over 74 countries.  Now, that's something I can get excited about!

The best part is, their stuff is cool.  They've grown from offering just totes to developing a variety of products and partnerships.  Here are a few of my current favorites:

For each FEED Trick-or-Treat bag purchased from feedprojects.com or at a FEED authorized retailer in the U.S., FEED will donate $3.50 to the U.S. Fund for UNICEF to help support UNICEF’s nutrition programs.

Each pouch includes 3 of Clarins best-selling products: Moisture-Rich Body Lotion, Hand and Nail Treatment Cream, and Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector. Perfect for on-the-go skin care.

Each FEED 15 Clarins Pouch provides 15 school meals to the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP).

In addition to providing 10 school meals to children through the United Nations World Food Programme’s School Feeding program, each FEED Kenya Kikoy is handcrafted in Kenya by a co-op of women and deaf artisans

Each FEED Our Small World Tote Bag purchased will generate funding to help UNICEF supply 500 children with a year’s worth of essential Vitamin A supplements - a nutrient proven to be particularly crucial to the health of a growing child

Each clutch sold will provide 1,000 school meals for children through the UN World Food Programme's School Feeding initiative - the largest donation to date for one of the FEED products!

  I think a few of these will definitely make it onto my holiday gift giving list!
