'To Haiti With Love' from the CFDA

I love it when the fashion world does good.

The CFDA has announced that they will partner with Theory to manufacture a t-shirt to help support Haiti in the aftermath of the 7.0 earthquake that wrecked the country in mid-January.

The t-shirt will sell for $25 with proceeds benefitting the Clinton Bush Haiti Fund. No word on how much of the proceeds will actually go to the relief effort, but I still congratulate the CFDA for making an effort and will definitely pick one up.

The t-shirt will be available on February 12th at Theory stores nationwide and online at http://www.cfda.com/.

The announcement from the CFDA is only the latest Haiti relief effort project launched by the fashion industry. Last week Alexis Bittar donated 100% of the purchase prices from jewelry bought online to earthquake relief and H&M matched Unicef donations made at their stores. What a wonderful world we live in when you can shop for good!
