Back to School Shopping: Shop For a Cause

It's time for back to school shopping and even if you aren't actually headed back to classes this fall, it is the perfect time to pick up one of these amazing pieces. The thing I love about buying from these organizations is that, in addition to treating yourself (or someone else!) to a little present, you are supporting an amazing cause. Here, your purchase makes a difference--YOU make a difference!

Whatever this fall has in store for you: classes, work, travel, or loving on little ones, do it in style and make a difference in the lives of others at the same time.

FashionAble

At FASHIONABLE, we believe our role is to INVEST IN A WOMAN. When a woman is empowered with work to do, whether in the home or in an office, she not only experiences the joy and satisfaction of developing a skill, she also creates change in those around her. FASHIONABLE’s role in this story is working with women, both locally and globally, who have overcome challenges ranging from prostitution to addiction to a lack of opportunity. Every one of us understands what it means to overcome, and we are all ABLE to find purpose in the work we do.
