Last week I attended a lovely event for the FEED project, hosted by model Lauren Bush, (niece of former President George W. Bush), at Lord + Taylor department store in New York.
Lauren Bush is the CEO, Creative Director and co-Founder of FEED Projects LLC. She also serves as the Chairman of the Board for the FEED Foundation.
The event was to kick off the launch of the latest FEED bag, available exclusively at Lord & Taylor, benefiting malnutrition in Guatemala.
For every “FEED 1 Guatemala” pouch and “FEED 3 Guatemala” bag sold at Lord & Taylor stores in the U.S. and online, FEED will donate $3.50 or $10.50 respectively to the U.S. Fund for UNICEF to help support UNICEF’s nutrition programs in Guatemala.
According to UNICEF, “Guatemala has one of the worst nutritional conditions in the region. Nearly 23% of children over three months and under five years of age suffered from general malnutrition, while almost one-half suffered from chronic malnutrition in 2006.”
As you can see, these are lovely and unique bags, which are hand made by women in Guatemala. They are also extremely reasonably priced - $39 for the larger tote and $19 for the smaller clutch. The purchase of the bags will help the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) provide daily nutrient powder for one child or three children (respectively) in Guatemala for one year.
I personally love the cream/brown version, which will be perfect for beach trips, weekend market shopping or quick overnight travel.
Don't forget to tuck in a great sunscreen, like one of my favorites, Clarins UV Plus Day Screen High Protection SPF 40 (shown above), and lip treatment with color and sun protection, like the new DuWop Icedteas Translucent Lip Treatment as well! - RLB
