Did you even know that National Business Women’s Week existed? I didn’t, and I’m a woman and own a business! They even have a blog! Founded in 1928 (really?!?) the National Business Women’s Week spotlights the progress made by female business owners, and the Tory Burch Foundation, founded in 2009, aids in that by helping bolster the success of women’s businesses financially. A special collection by Tory, featuring the sunflower design, her foundation symbol, on scarves, leather bracelets, totes, key chains, a compilation CD and more has a percentage of sales going toward this worthy cause. Retailing from $16.99-$195, you can support the foundation by purchasing one of these products, or make a straight up donation if you’d like!
In the meanwhile, check out the info, think about it, and enter our giveaway for a free Tory Burch Foundation compilation CD (retails for $16.99)! The CD features songs by some of my faves, old and new, including The Smiths, Wyclef Jean, Santigold, and Santana and Citizen Cope.
