G3: FEED the World and be Fabulous

Though this week’s green giving guide is turning towards food and last minute ecotaining tips…I had to conclude the gifts that give back ideas with one of all-time favorite, feel-good finds. I’ve been a fan of Lauren Bush Lauren for several years now after we met doing the EcoLifestyle Gala for SFGD in 2010 (she was the EcoLifestyle Award recipient). She’s a style icon, a trendsetter and an inspiration – her FEED Projects have provided 60 million meals and generated over 6 million dollars in donations since she launched it in 2005. She’s a true icon for the new generation of philanthropists and dogooders – leading the pack in the concept of giving x3 (purchases that turn into something for one, for another and then one another as she gives back to the world with a recipe for change). Each FEED purchase from the FEED 5 bracelet (retail $18) to the FEED KENYA purse (retail $150) and many more bags/accessories, offers an opportunity to feed from 5-50 +. It’s a great day when the description of your gift, includes a prescription for helping others.
