I think I’ve about plastered my support for children’s charities all over the place….well, in my own cyber places anyway. I know I mentioned the annual toy drive that my review items are saved for a few dozen times, especially around the holidays. And when I don’t have enough review items or a ton of deniro to chip in, I usually make a Kohl’s run to snatch up the books and coordinating stuffed animals to supplement my donation.
I’ve gotten some really great items that are crazy popular with the kiddos. I still get a giggle that I was able to buy up all of the Horton Hears A Who collection…Okay, well that wasn’t all for charity, I lover Horton and gave him to all my nieces and nephews and I might have kept one for myself but I really did give away all the other Dr Seuss critters and the Eric Carle collections….For just $5 bucks each I couldn’t leave behind a single Brown Bear, kangaroo, spider, or rubber duckie (though I think I kept one of those too). The kids all love them and they are of great quality, not the cheapo run of the mill that some companies sell off in the name of charity.
I already knew that the Kohl’s Cares program gives 100 percent of the net profit from the sale of the featured books and plush toys to benefit kids’ health and education initiatives in communities nationwide. Since its inception, Kohl’s has raised more than $180 million to help kids.
But I feel pretty silly that for as long as I have been shopping at Kohl’s (it is truly my favorite off-line store) and have been supporting the Kohl’s Cares initiative for children I was oblivious to the rest of all their works and efforts toward aiding in social change and responsibility.
Last week I discovered that Kohl’s also supports the fight against breast cancer with a commitment of $7 million over three years to the American Cancer Society’s Midwest Division and the Southeast Wisconsin Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure® to support breast cancer research, education and patient-assistance programs. It’s no wonder Kohl’s is my favorite shopping spot!
A quick click around on their Kohl’s Cares webpage and I got all excited…I mean, FILA is nothing to shabby! Sunglasses, fitness gear, duffle bags, ear buds and even a digital watch, all in of course breast cancer awareness pink and at $5 and $10 they are a steal with a cause!
I ended up picking out a pair of their too cute brown and pink FILA sunglasses for a fashion statement with a cause.
They are really chic with gold-tone accents, brown arms, the FILA logo, and pink breast cancer awareness ribbon graphic to help promote the cause.
Like all of the items up for snags on the page 100% of the net profit from the sale support the fight against breast cancer….My eye doctor insists that everyone should wear sunglasses anytime they leave the house, so now I can follow orders and contribute to breast cancer awareness all in cute summer fashion.
I’ve got some pre-residency trip shopping to do so I’m thinking that I may as well pick up the FILA floral tee too....I mean it is after all for charity :o)
These items are available from April 30 through the end of July at Kohl’s 40 Wisconsin stores and online at WWW.Kohls.Com. With each item costing only $5 and $10 each, 100% of the net profit will go to supporting the fight against breast cancer!
