I am managing a sad little sick puppy at the moment, but, thank goodness — there’s more from J.Crew!
And grown-up kids…
Taking the words out of J.Crew’s mouth (so I can get back to the pup): “Over the past few months, we proudly offered the CFDA’s “Fashion for Haiti” limited-edition t-shirt, designed by Peter Arnell (the man who created the iconic “Fashion for America” t-shirt that raised over $2 million for the Twin Tower Fund after 9/11), and our own kids’ Hands Helping Haiti tee, and pledged to donate 100% of the profits from their sales to the Clinton Bush Haiti Fund…” The kids tee was “Custom-designed by our in-house artists with handwritten Creole phrases” and “has a big conscience…raising funds for immediate, high-impact relief and long-term recovery efforts to help those in Haiti who are most in need of assistance.”
And while we’re on the topic of tees, J.Crew offered the Fashion Night Out t-shirt in some New York stores in September – see an earlier post on Neiman Marcus’ same effort – and now it’s on the website too. Their words on this one… “We’re thrilled to be teaming up with the CFDA (Council of Fashion Designers of America) again for this year’s Fashion’s Night Out. Held on September 10, 2010, in New York and around the world, the event is a fun celebration of fashion and a great way to support some of our favorite causes: 40 percent of the proceeds from this tee will benefit the New York City AIDS Fund.”
I am proud of good old J.Crew and can’t wait to see what’s next!
