It’s September… SHOP TEAL

September is National Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month. There are numerous ways that you can show your support and help raise funds for the Ovarian Cancer National Alliance (OCNA). The easiest, most cost effective and fun way to contribute is by SHOPPING TEAL.

Why SHOP TEAL?  Not only is teal is the BIG color for fall, more importantly teal is the ovarian cancer community’s color and serves as a reminder that ovarian cancer is the deadliest of all the cancers of the reproductive system and a leading cause of cancer death among women.  There are hundreds of online retailers that feature teal items and we’ve teamed up with a number of these retailers to highlight their teal products.

The best part is that while SHOPPING TEAL, a percentage of your purchase will be earmarked to benefit OCNA.  Teal may not be everyone’s color, but not to worry, you can buy just about anything you want from our participating retailers and still have your purchase support OCNA.  We have plenty of retailers to share with you in order to help you begin your shopping adventure in support of Ovarian Cancer, but first, let’s get you familiar with the Ovarian Cancer National Alliance.

Established in 1997, the Ovarian Cancer National Alliance has become the foremost advocate for ovarian cancer in the United States. Until there’s a cure for the disease, the Ovarian Cancer National Alliance will lead the national initiative to conquer ovarian cancer. The organization unites individuals and organizations at the local, state, and national levels to advance ovarian cancer research in the quest for early detection tests, improved health care practices, and development of live-saving treatment protocols. The OCNA is helping save women’s lives by raising awareness about this drastically understated disease. The organization teaches us to “Know your body. Know the symptoms. Help spread the word.”

So now that you have a better understanding of what OCNA does and how important their work is to all women with ovarian cancer and to their friends and families, I bet you’d like to know how you can help too! We’ve been working closely with a number of our retailers to highlight their teal products and have dedicated an entire category where you can just click on these teal products, buy them and help fund research and educational programs to raise money and awareness for ovarian cancer.  While September 3rd is the official WEAR TEAL DAY to publicly show your support for the ovarian cancer community, we’re dedicating the entire month to encourage a SHOP TEAL movement!

We’ve got to give our friends at DHC For Beauty and Health a great big thank you for coming in with a super amazing promotion!  For the entire month of September DHC will give a $10 donation to the Ovarian Cancer National Alliance on orders of $75 or more, plus free shipping!! If you’re thinking DHC?  Let us give you the scoop, they are the #1 skin care product sold in Japan – now, if you’ve ever envied the flawless beauty of almost every Japanese women you’ve seen under their umbrellas, it’s likely they’re big DHC fans.  We especially love their line of Q10 products and with a generous $10 contribution and a capacious variety of skin care, body care and fine foods products, it’ll be quite effortless to spend the $75 needed for both the contribution and the FREE SHIPPING!

Among other great retailers with teal colored products, you will find company’s such as:

Another shout out for their generosity has to go out to RED ENVELOPE, PRO FLOWERS, SHARI’S BERRIES and CHERRY MOON FARMS!  Each of these retailers ear-mark $10 per transaction to benefit our nonprofit partners.  For the month of September, we’ve identified some beautiful teal products that we know you’ll love …

Shoes For Tomorrow Today

Posted on December 18th, 2008 by Mire in fair trade, holiday, teens, toms shoes 0 Comments

The goal of TOMS SHOES for this holiday season is to sell 30,000 pairs of shoes — WHY? So they can match that number, and in turn, give 30,000 pairs of shoes to boys and girls in Ethiopia suffering from Podoconiosis, a soil-transmitted infection that attacks the lymph system and results in swelling and ulceration of the feet and lower legs. While more than 1,000,000 men, women and children suffer from the disease; the good news is that it’s 100% preventable simply by wearing shoes!

For every pair of shoes purchased by people like you and me, TOMS gives a pair of shoes to a child in need somewhere else in the world. Since their start in May 2006, TOMS has given over 10,000 pairs of shoes to children in Argentina and 50,000 pairs in South Africa. By the end of this year, TOMS hopes to have given another 200,000 pairs of shoes to children in need around the world. It’s through caring customers like you that all this good stuff can continue to happen. TOMS calls it the One for One campaign – we call it shop-anthropy – armchair philanthropy for today and tomorrow!! is happy to welcome TOMS SHOES to its retail line-up! Not only do we love their business model, we love their shoes. If you’ve been stumped as to what to get your punk rock/vegan nephew, your 10 year old, your grandma, your husband or your boss this holiday season… your search is over! EVERYONE loves TOMS! This shopping blog will highlight just a sampling of their mighty One for One line of shoes, tees and accessories — but you’ll get the picture — their simple design and simple concept packs a mighty philanthropic PUNCH!

We love everything TOMS but we’re especially enamored by the mini TOMS that are sure to please all the wee ones on your shopping list. Whether they’re pink camos or hand painted by artist Tyler Ramsey, there’s no doubt about it… kids look cute in TOMS! Tiny TOMS come in many colors and patterns and are perfect for pre-walkers or run-all-overs! Here are some action shots that will REALLY make you want to adorn your little pumpkin in a cute and durable shoe. Knowing that every purchase puts shoes on someone else’s little pumpkin will take the chill out of even the coldest of winter days.

TOMS has a variety in women’s shoes ranging from cozy slippers to sexy boots. Corduroy on the outside, fleece on the inside… that’s the winning combo for this pair of TOMS. Once worn you’ll find ‘em hard to take off. East Coast to West Coast and all parts in between — knee-high boots are always in style and TOMS Rust Wrap Boots are no exception. They’re not only good-looking and well designed, they’re vegan to boot :)the perfect gift for both people and animal lovers! Gotta say tho — my personal favorite is the Gandhi quipped “you must be the change you wish to see in the world” canvas slip-on — the best bit of wisdom right there on your shoe — just in case you forget.

The corduroy slip-on is a no-brainer for any guy. If it feels like a slipper but can also be worn to dinner…what’s not to love? If your guy is feelin’ really fancy, he can sport the always classic — plaid and chocolate brown slip-on. These shoes are so versatile — they can be worn on the beach, in the bush, on the street, in Manhattan, Milan, Melbourne or Malibu. Wherever you call home and whatever you may do, it’s always cool to help others — and wearing TOMS combines both compassion and style.

Good job! Now your family and a family in need are all shod. But why stop there? TOMS has a few extras that will help you cross every last name off your gift list. The “Drop TOMS Not Bombs” vintage-feel Tee is simple, cool and sends a very timely message. While the “be the change” onesie will make a guru out of your enlightened little one, the FEEDbag is designed to raise awareness and funds for hungry children. Each FEEDbag sold will provide a school year’s worth of meals for one child in need while at the same time providing an educational opportunity for that same child. Whether you tote your FEEDbag to school, work, play, or around town to shop, remember that your bag is helping to FEED and EDUCATE one child for one academic school year! Which simply said means HOPE FOR A BETTER TOMORROW TODAY!!!
