Friday Favorites

favorite things

 

thankful

 

Since next week is Thanksgiving, I thought I would highlight items where part, or all, of the proceeds help others in need. These beautiful, hand-crafted pieces are globally providing jobs, food, education and support. These items, the people that make them, and the companies that market them are all on my today, I am thankful for you list.

 

elephant earrings

 

 

Elephants are known for their intelligence, leadership, respect, and their ability to sustain friendships. I think they are the most beautiful creatures! A percentage of the proceeds from these adorable earrings go towards saving African Elephants. #saveelephants

toms target

 

Target + Toms partnership is bringing you a collection of shoes, clothes, and accessories that will provide one week of meals to Americans in need. This cute build your tomorrow clutch is perfect for a night out or as a small cosmetics pouch!

young coalition

 

This graphic tee comes from Urban Outfitters. One of UO’s employees lost their fight to breast cancer and the company has since teamed up with Young Survival Coalition. 100% of the proceeds will go towards providing support and education to those with breast cancer. #thereisalwayshope

little market

 

Does this basket not fit perfectly into your farmer’s market lifestyle? The Little Market prides itself in fair trade and empowering women artisans from around the world. This handmade basket was crafted by artisans in the region of Ghana.

FEED

 

Lastly, this classic bag from FEED. I have been a huge fan of FEED for awhile now. Each bag provides a child with meals for one year. Since the launch of the company in 2007, they have provided over 85 million meals. The above bag is one of the original designs and is reversible.

There is so much to be thankful for this year and these five items definitely warm my heart. I hope you’ve enjoyed this week’s Friday Favorites and look forward to a wonderful holiday.

What are you thankful for, Luxers?
