dine-out-for-heroes-logoIt’s time to come together. And, what better cause than our military heros. This Friday, on Veterans Day, consider joining one of the many NYC restaurants, such as Nobu, the Lambs Club, Michael Jordan’s Steakhouse, Butter, Beauty & Essex, Chez Josephine, BLT Steak and more that will be contributing money to the Bob Woodruff Foundation.

The foundation invests in programs that benefit our nation’s heros. The mission of the Bob Woodruff Foundation is to create long-lasting positive outcomes for our nation’s wounded, ill and injured veterans, service members and their families.dofhdofh-bannerNew Yorkers and visitors to the Big Apple have big appetites, but even bigger hearts. If you’re eating out on Friday….think about supporting those who make our freedom possible. You can find the entire list of participating restaurants here.


Camo for a Cause

With Veterans Day today, I can’t help but think of “camo”, one of my favorite fashion neutrals.

I was going to do a round up of favorite camo products, but this one particular company that I met at our school book fair, Designs that Donate, will donate 10% of any sales to the charity of your choice. And, how nice would it be to purchase one of these cool camo bags for yourself or as a gift and donate to Wounded Warriors or another charity that supports our military veterans and their families.

They can do a “goyard inspired” stripe in your color choice with a word or initials. After a quick consultation with a stylish friend, I chose the black and white stripe with “EBM”. Screen Shot 2015-11-10 at 8.29.18 PM Screen Shot 2015-11-10 at 8.30.56 PM Screen Shot 2015-11-10 at 8.36.33 PM Screen Shot 2015-11-10 at 9.28.53 PM

Follow Designs That Donate on Instagram (@designsthatdonate) to see their full array of products…and they will always donate to your charity of choice with any purchase, camo not required.

And, above all, let’s remember our military today…their courage, their sacrifices and their families!

Do you “camo”?
