Not only can infinite puns come out of G.H. Bass & Co.'s new charitable initiative, but also real change (pun intended c; ) . G.H. Bass & Co. has launched a "Pennies Toward Progress" initiative, donating 100 pennies to the "I Have a Dream" Foundation for every pair of their iconic Weejuns (penny loafers)!
The "I Have a Dream" Foundation "empowers children in low-income communities to achieve higher education and fulfill their leadership potential by providing them with guaranteed tuition support and equipping them with the skills, knowledge, and habits they need to gain entry to higher education and succeed in college and beyond."
You can donate to the foundation directly >here<
ALSO stop by and check out their Penny Loafers that are doing good!
It's companies like this that should be supported and encouraged by us as buyers rather than those that violate human rights and child labor laws (don't forget to check out my Boycott List!). The power is in OUR HANDS and hopefully we will make the right choice.
P.S. Their penny loafers are also gorgeous. Here are a few of my favorites (clicking on the photo will take you directly to them)!
Which ones do you like?
P.S. No, I was not paid/compensated for this post--it was from my own research! c;
