Support Japan Through Fashion!

So today's post isn't about any deals, but I wanted to take a moment to share some of the ways you can support the Japan relief effort through fashion.  A lot of designers have either created specific items whose proceeds will go towards the relief effort, or have set up donation plans.  Tory Burch is one example.  She's designed a shirt for $29 available on Rue La La.  100% of the net proceeds will go to the American Red Cross to support the efforts in Japan.

Ralph Lauren has also designed the Japan Hope Polo shirt, where 100% of the proceeds will be donated to the United Way to help the relief effort.  The polos are available in navy, black, and white, and cost $98.

Other designers are donating a portion of their sales to the effort.  Diane von Furstenberg is donating 10% of sales from her U.S. stores and to the Japan Earthquake Relief Fund.  Coach is donating about $5 million outright.  A lot of other stores and designers have set up donation programs where they will match donations.  For a more comprehensive list, click here.  If there was ever a time to justify doing a little shopping, this is it, so show your support!
