Giving the Gift of Fashion This Holiday Season: Our Top Fashion-Forward Charity Picks
Let’s be realistic about the times we are living in. With the economy in such a bad shape and people cutting back everywhere, it doesn’t seem right to splurge on holiday gifts. Instead of treating yourself or your friends to the hottest beauty, fashion and accessories on sale now, give gifts to those less fortunate. After all, it is better to give thanreceive right?
Here are our favorite fashion-forward charities:
