During Valentine season, shop for gifts while giving back to a good cause! We’ve compiled a list of some fabulous fashion/beauty/lifestyle products that supports local charities, philantrophies, and organizations. Feel good about shopping this Holiday knowing that you are buying a present for a loved one and helping out a great cause at the same time. Double the gifting for the price of one – sounds like a win-win to me 🙂
Pebble by Kahiniwalla
One way that you can help make the world a better place is to purchase products from Fair Trade companies! Pebble by Kahiniwalla is the perfect company to start shopping!

These rural workplaces provide a welcome alternative for women whose only option previously would be moving to a large city to work in the garment industry, leaving their families behind, and becoming vulnerable to unsafe, unjust and sometimes violent situations.

StarLooks has created an amazing variety of gorgeous, professional quality, HD cosmetics that have become a favorite brand inside the world’s beauty subscription boxes. Founder, Marci Star, found a calling within herself to truly impact the ways in which people of all shapes, colors, sizes, and even skin conditions, can shine with their inner beauty reflected on the outside too. An important part of the StarLooks’ mission is to help others dream big and in their own small way let their inner beauty out! That’s why a portion of all proceeds goes to the Downtown Women’s Center in Los Angeles, whose mission is to keep women safe and off LA’s Skid Row by putting them into schooling, housing, food, etc.
When StarLooks provide cosmetics, they go to women who have lived off the streets and are in therapy and practicing towards sobriety. The donated cosmetics builds their confidence and enhances their beauty from inside to out during their first job interviews!
