In light of the tragic events in Japan this month, many companies have stepped up with ways to donate to the country and those in need. Everyone has the power to make an impact in helping the cause. POSHGLAM has rounded up five fashionable ways to donate to Japan.
KiraKira, a brilliant collection of jewelry with inspiration from Asian florals will donate 20 percent from all online sales to the American Red Cross Japanese Relief Fund.
Popular pieces in the KiraKira collection include the Sakura Circle Pendant. A rose gold pendant with a roughly edged circle reminiscent of a vine with branched leaves of cherry blossoms within. The gold sand dollar pendant is another collection favorite, and mimics an authentics sand dollar.
3.1 Phillip Lim will host a rare public sale Thursday March 24 and Friday March 25 with all proceeds going to the American Red Cross to aid in Japan relief. The sale will run at the Phillip Lim Showroom, 260 W 39th Street on the 17th Floor.
Corter Leather is offering a special “For Japan” edition bracelet. Each hand-made bracelet is natural leather with a red button in support of Japan. The bracelets are $20 each, and 100 percent of proceeds will go to the American Red Cross.
Need a new handbag for Spring? Rebecca Minkoff will donate $100 for every red bag purchased on her site to the American Red Cross. Our favorite is the BF Bag, a messenger bag with buckle front closure, gold chain detail on the strap, and a tassel closure. Six styles are available on Rebecca Minkoff’s site.
AFTERZINE, curated by Hamish Robertson, will donate $5 of each copy sold to the American Red Cross for Japan. AFTERZINE is a bi-annual arts and culture zine featuring a collection of invited works upon dictated themes. The book features contributors such as Peter Saville, Alexa Chung and Tavi.
