Shopping For A Cause

I believe to whom much is given much is required. I'm not the richest person, but I'm definitely not the poorest. I find it very important to give back to those who aren't as fortunate as we are. I know that everyone doesn't have the time to volunteer at soup kitchens or have enough money to give big donations to charity;however we can all do something.
H&M is teaming up with UNICEF for a five year project entitled "All For Children".The project is focused on the children in the Salem and Dharmapuri districts in Tamil Nadu, on the southern tip of India. H&M takes a clear stance against child labour, and the goal of the initiative is to lift children out of work and into education, while also providing them with health and nutrition care, and building a protective environment to help prevent child labour. H&M has backed the project with a 4.5 million dollar donation, which hopefully motivates more customers to participate.
Sonia Rykiel has designed a bag made from organic cotton exclusively for H&M.December 5, 2009 it will be available in approximately 1,500 stores. 30% of the price of the bag will be donated to UNICEF. It is the first in a series of bags designed to raise funds for UNICEF and H&M’s All for Children project.Join H&M in making a difference in the lives of many children
