The unstoppable A LIST threw an inspiring “Give Back” garden party, celebrating brands that are conscious and give back. Why can’t all of Hollywood be like this?
The theme? Brands that GIVE A DAMN! Leading the gathering hosts, N:PHILANTHROPY , a ridiculously rad clothing line which donates 10 percent of net profits to – oh – let’s say children’s cancer research or ya know, a little thing like animal welfare? Yah, and um, what are you doing? Exactly! Get out there and volunteer at Children’s Hospital LA, which was also representing.
And who was there? A bevy of glowing Hollywood lovelies sporting the socially conscious brands of the day.

Next up in the give back/conscious brands was the stunning line…
Where this Kenyan born beauty learned about skincare at the age of 8, which is about the age of her skin. Whatever she’s using, I’m doing.
This line knocks it out the ballpark. These exquisite goods are made by giving jobs to women in need.
“In my experience, poor people are the world’s greatest entrepreneurs. Every day, they must innovate in order to survive. They remain poor because they do not have the opportunities to turn their creativity into sustainable income.“
– MUHAMMAD YUNUS, AUTHOR OF Creating a World Without Poverty
We believe that the end to generational poverty will come when people are able to provide for themselves.
Charity is critical. Its importance lies in giving relief to those who are in great destitution from what are often unbearable circumstances. However, giving food, medical care, clothing, and other charity to the poor is just the beginning point to solving the issues of poverty. It is widely known that if we are to end extreme poverty, two things must happen. One, we must create jobs for those lacking opportunity, and two, we must do so for women. This is the gap that FASHIONABLE wants to fill.
To be clear, FASHIONABLE is not a social model of business that gives something away. We believe that the end to generational poverty will come when people are able to provide for themselves. We believe that social businesses whose aim is to alleviate poverty should use their business skills to create job opportunities for the poor, not give them more charity. What we seek to “give” to those living in poverty is opportunity by purchasing goods from them, and helping those businesses grow and employ more.
We believe in doing the manufacturing in the communities we wish to impact, creating jobs along the way.
Our business model is not creating goods in a strong economic country, selling those goods in the West, and then giving charity to developing countries. This still leaves the developing country out of the opportunity for economic growth, and keeps them in a cycle of dependency. We believe in doing the manufacturing in the communities we wish to impact, creating jobs along the way. Although it often creates a unique set of challenges, trade with developing countries is an empowerment model that we are committed to.

How about this one – EVERY CENT goes to Planned Parenthood. Is there really anything else I need to say? Yah. Didn’t think so.
Welcome to THE LIPSTICK LOBBY. We are a social justice movement for change, progress and equality. Please join us in a simple way to protest and make a difference: this bold statement lipstick.
Wearing this lipstick is a reminder that small actions can create big waves. It’s a simple way to speak up and speak out against the threats to women’s freedoms and health care posed by the Trump administration. It’s a small thing we can all do right here, right now to create change.
100% of net profits from the sale of our signature shade KISS MY PINK will be donated to Planned Parenthood. And stay tuned…we have new shades and new ways to make a difference in the works.
So pucker up in protest with us. Together we can resist. Together we can make a difference. Together we can #LipstickItToTheMan!
100% OF NET PROFITS FROM KISS MY PINK WILL BE DONATED TO PLANNED PARENTHOOD
Planned Parenthood is one of the nation’s leading providers of high-quality, affordable health care for women, men, and young people, and the nation’s largest provider of sex education. This vital organization serves 2.5 million women and men in the United States who annually visit Planned Parenthood centers for health care services and information. If Trump succeeds with his devastating agenda to repeal the Affordable Care Act, millions of people will lose their health care and Planned Parenthood will lose its federal funding. We refuse to accept this.
We chowed on Pure Growth Organic snacks which I have been totally mad about, because frankly, half my diet is chowing my kids snacks. Now I can do it and they are actually GOOD! And good for you. Done and done. We sipped Rethink Water (more adorable packaging for kids!) And I stared down the tequila cocktails by Viva XXXII but couldn’t drink because I had to teach a spin class later on. Good news, I took a bottle to go, so, um, hi weekend, are you here yet?
