Charitable Fashion: Dress To Inspire

In a country where opportunities are endless and even the simplest of things are taken for granted, it’s important to appreciate everything you have and if you’re fortunate enough to be able to, pay it forward. In the spirit of giving back, shopping the 5 brands listed below means you are making an impact. Each brand is partnered with one or more charities to raise awareness on a specific cause and was created out of charitable intent. unnamed-89one } YOUNITY CLOTHING  ⇒ Veteran owned and operated, YOUnity Clothing donates half of every shirt sold to an important social cause. I come from a long family line of veterans some which are still recovering from sustainable injuries incurred while serving our country. So any charity/company that supports veterans surely has my support. Their current campaign focuses on getting the proper training for service dogs of veterans with PTSD. They donate $4 of each shirt sold to the program Hounds for Heroes.

Founder, Mariel, is so sweet and down to earth and created her company to offer inspiring tops with positive, meaningful messages. 10% of their monthly proceeds are donated to like-minded charities and non-profit organizations who promote the same message, women’s health & empowerment. “Change your thinking – and you’re on your way to changing your life!” Pictured: Think Positive Tank. http://www.thinkallways.com
