It's time for a little R & R, the DAYly will return in the Fall. We're working away on our new issue and maybe fishing for a few new pairs of shoes along the way. If you miss us, let us know via Facebook or Twitter! xoxo
Work Hard Play Hard
You may have noticed that the Volume 3 Guest House has been MIA for the past week...well, it's because we were working on an addition! We are finally ready to unveil Designer Jennifer Delonge's fabulous Calabasas, CA office space. Visit the GUEST HOUSE (scroll to the bottom) to read all about it! While you're there, read all about her amazing children's furniture line and see images of her own home if you haven't already.
Giving Back with Back-To-School
Yesterday we posted on some really cool bracelets for a really great cause, so it inspired us to search for more. In fact, it inspired us to find an entire back-to-school outfit that gives back! Check it out:
This FreeCity YoungOnes Sparrow LetsGo Hoodie in Blade Green is the perfect addition to any child's Fall wardrobe. The proceeds of select FreeCity products help to support the arts and artists.
The Monkey Bridge Tee from Raintees was illustrated by a young Costa Rican girl named Winnie McCarthy. Raintees donates school supplies to the children and asks them to illustrate what they see happening in their world every day. For every item sold a child involved in the non-profit Kids Saving the Rain Forest receives a tree they can plant to replace one that has been destroyed. Raintees also sponsors the education of the children whose artwork is selected. Purchasing one of these tees for your children is a great way to teach them about what's going on in the world around us and how they can help.
These Premium Organic Zippered Skinny Jeans from GreenEdgeKids are made in the USA from 99% certified organic cotton. I only wish they came in my size!
Ok, so everyone loves TOMS Shoes, and these Earle Canvas Classic Tiny Toms are no exception. They're made of all natural products and display the message "Raise I.Q.s, not sea levels." For every pair of TOMS shoes purchased, a pair will be donated to a child in need.
We found these fun bracelets on Wanderlust. Each bracelet is handmade by a young disabled woman who lives across from Wanderlust's glorious angkor wat temples. She scours the bins for discarded water bottles left behind by tourists, cuts them into strips and wraps each one with silky string.
Change for Kids
Recently, I was introduced to Change for Kids, an amazing charity that empowers underpriveleged kids by providing them with literary, arts, and music programs. They team up with New York Public schools to make these programs readily available to underserved children in Harlem, Brooklyn, the Bronx, and Queens. The charity has many ways for everyone to get involved including volunteering, attending fun events like rodeos, children's parties, tailgates, etc. I purchased some of their beaded bracelets that display encouraging words like "hope" "love" and "peace." Visit the website for more information, and get involved! For information on how to purchase the bracelets, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
