California-based, vintage-inspired clothing and accessories boutique, Unique Vintage, is donating 20 percent of sales from their umbrella collection to the American Red Cross from March 23 through April 6. The unique umbrellas not only benefit overseas relief efforts, but lend a pop of cheeriness to dreary rainy days.
Rebecca Minkoff is offering six special luxurious leather handbags to aid Japan. For each handbag purchased from the Japan Relief collection, $100 from the sale will be donated to the Red Cross.
If you happen to be a big fan of T-shirts, then several designers have some luxe options.
At Tory Burch, 100 percent of the net proceeds of every Japan Relief T-shirt sold through September 15, 2011, will go to the American Red Cross to benefit the Japan earthquake and Pacific tsunami relief efforts. The site is also offering free standard shipping on the purchase of the Japan Relief T.
To help the American Red Cross' earthquake and tsunami relief efforts in Japan, opening ceremony is offering the Red Cross Japan Tee, which will give 100 percent of profits from the sale to the American Red Cross. Ever thinking forward, the White cotton T-shirt with screen-printed red dot at chest with "Opening Ceremony" text and logo at back features models showcasing personalized versions of the soft cotton T-shirt.
The Council of Fashion Designers of America is planning an online fund-raiser to help Japan's disaster victims. "Fashion & Friends for Japan" kicks off April 5 at Charitybuzz.com.
