Goods for good has been a cause close to my heart since I helped organize our very first Party For Good not long after I moved to New York. Since then our group of young volunteers has flourished and grown and we've gone on to raise many (many!) thousands of dollars to help establish sustainable small businesses and aid orphan care in Malawi.
This Wednesday evening (March 25th), I'll be helping my friend (and fellow goods for good Young Professionals Committee member) Abbey Turtinen host a fun spring shopping event with a charitable twist at Joe Fresh on lower Fifth Avenue.
Come by anytime between 6:30 and 8:30 p.m. to have a drink and a snack and "shop for good." Twenty percent of every purchase made that evening will directly benefit goods for good!
Joe Fresh has recently risen the ranks of my list of go-to shops downtown because I love the accessible price point and unfussy design aesthetic. I already have a few favorite pieces earmarked that I'm pretty sure I need for my spring wardrobe. Top among them is an updated, slightly oversized surplus jacket like this or this to wear over boyfriend jeans and sundresses alike. Additionally, this perfect (and perfectly priced) straw panama hat is something I can't quite resist. (See my post on straw hats from last spring.) I'm also kind of obsessed with silky, slouchy pants right now (if you couldn't tell already) so those are an #addtocart piece, too. I hope you'll join me in indulging some fresh spring purchases for a worthy cause—or at the very least have a few cocktails and do a fashion show in the dressing room with me.
*The goods for good YPC is always looking for new members in NYC who are interested in spending time with like-minded young people and helping raise awareness and funds for goods for good. Shoot me an email or check out the goods for good website for more info!
I hope to shop with some of you New York readers on Wednesday!
