Fashion for Charity: Tory Burch Foundation
Fashion for Charity is coming a little early this week! It is the first day of National Business Women’s Week and the Tory Burch Foundation is celebrating the occasion, which highlights the progress female business owners have made in the U.S.
National Business Women’s Week is significant to the Tory Burch Foundation whose mission is to economically empower women. The Foundation has partnered with ACCION USA to provide mentoring and microfinance to women who do not typically have access to traditional financial services. Microfinance is effective because small businesses account for more than half the jobs in the U.S., but 82 still percent experience difficulty in obtaining the capital they need. Microfinance fills that gap.
Tory Burch has launched a special collection to benefit the Tory Burch Foundation, which includes a gorgeous Pop Art silk scarf, leather wrap bracelets, tees, umbrellas, beach towels, flip flops and even CDs. All these gifts are adorned with a special sunflower, the Foundation logo, which was inspired by a sunflower pendant Tory’s father, Buddy, had made for his mother. These gifts are all available now on toryburch.com.

I encourage you all to learn more about the Tory Burch Foundation and the women they are helping on toryburchfoundation.org. This is truly fashion with substance.
