it’s not often that my faith in humanity is (temporarily) restored…i tend to have a pretty pessimistic world view. but the crisis in haiti really does seem to have brought out some amazingly selfless gestures from literally every corner.
i know that thousands of shops, designers and organizations are teaming up to help us donate, and they’re all wonderful for doing it. but the effort at alexis bittar really caught my eye for its utter and complete generosity. for the rest of this week (through 1/22/10), alexis bittar is donating a huge 100% of his online proceeds to the haiti earthquake recovery effort. 100%!! i think it’s absolutely amazing of them, and have decided it may be time to show my support by splurging on one of their signature lucite bracelets, which i’ve been lusting after from afar for some time.
hmm…or maybe a pair of earrings…yum! if you’re short on cash (aren’t we all), it’s worth mentioning that their sale section (and each and every thing pictured here is on sale, by the way) just dropped to 50% off, with loads of under-$100 choices. so now you can be a good samaritan, a bargain-shopping genius, and impeccably stylish all at the same time.
a huge virtual hug to alexis bittar for going the extra mile!
