Smile File-What’s Your Doggelganger?

I saw this site in New York Magazine’s Approval Matrix a couple weeks back and could NOT resist! Maybe the BEST marketing tool I’ve seen in a long while. The Pedigree Adoption Center in New Zealand created this fantastic site to raise awareness of the thousands of dogs that need a home. Super simple and fun site, promoting a fantastic cause. You can either upload a picture or take one, I just took one with my laptop. Then they do… View Post

Made by Voz-Empowering Women with Design

The efforts of people to make this world more beautiful never cease to amaze me. This is what brought me to Voz and The Chol Chol Foundation, who work as production partners to bring fair trade work to Mapuche artisan women in need. Jasmine Aarons was inspired to create Voz after traveling to study indigenous design for her graduate program at Stanford Product Design. Jasmine then went to Chile on a Haas post-graduate fellowship to offer women of the Mapuche courses… View Post

Store Highlight- Imani

(click on any image to buy) The Zion Project is an organization that aims to heal and empower war-effected women and girls in Africa; Imani is their store.

Help Provide Relief for Japan

Thank you to Marissa from The Well-Appointed Catwalk for sharing these prints from The Poster Cause Project.

In the Huffington Post’s article, “How to Help Japan,”  there is a great list of organizations where you can donate. The Huffington Post also includes a description of… View Post
