Giving Back Through Shopping: The FEED Projects

I will be honest.  For a long time, I really did not know what the FEED Projects bags were.  I have seen them carried by celebrities and in Nordstrom for some time, and have even purchased some of the Small World products for children.  Other than that, I had no understanding of what this organization did.  Then I received the October issue of Town and Country with Lauren Bush and David Lauren on the cover.  Beyond discussing their relationship, the article also discussed in detail all the philanthropic work they are involved in.  Since Lauren is the co-founder and CEO of the FEED projects, I learned a lot more about what these products mean and continued to do a little research online.  I love what this organization is doing and their mission of feeding the world.  A donation from every sale is made to feeding those in need.  Here are some of my favorite items on their website, all with stories of what this purchase will help to do around the world.
