Fashion that Gives BACK!

  Hi everyone! 
As we are in the run up to Christmas and the shopping rush begins, we here at Native Feathers would like to put those brands that give back in the spotlight.

 Angela & Roi Bag Company go the extra mile with a unique way to raise money for charity while promoting awareness for those causes that need our help and attention. 

Different medical issues relate to specific colours. For example, Lung Cancer awareness links traditionally with the color white. When customers purchase a white handbag, five dollars will automatically be donated to Lung Cancer Alliance. Angela & Roi works together in total with eleven non-profit organizations. 

A detachable colour ribbon accompanies each handbag purchase. The ribbon associates with specific causes. By attaching the ribbon to your handbag, you can help raise awareness.
 This is just simply a fantastic idea, by carrying a bag with a colour ribbon representing a chosen cause, you can spread more awareness for your chosen cause everyday.

Angela & Roi’s mission is to build a community where fashion can intertwine with philanthropy and we believe they are doing a great job!

For every pair of shoes sold by Toms they give another pair to a child in need, One for One.
"Transforming everyday purchases into a force for good around the world."

Toms gives shoes in more than 60 countries, working closely with their Giving Partners to make sure the communities who receive shoes will receive the greatest impact to the health of their children. 

It is easy to take for granted that we are all lucky enough to own shoes but this is a luxury that not all children are afforded, having shoes is a huge deal for these children and can help them in many ways:

Protecting children's feet from cuts and infections; helping children go to school where shoes are often required for attendance and giving a child the confidence to reach their full potential and enjoy life. 

So if you are shopping for yourself or loved ones this christmas why not support a brand that pays it forward. 
If you guys know any other charitable brands please let us know!
