Fashion sometimes gets a bad rap. After all, the entire industry is about looking good — comfort, budget, or practicality be damned. So it’s refreshing when we find fashion companies that actually care about things other than 6-inch heels or thousand dollar handbags.

Now, more than ever, designers and brands are showing just how stylish charity can be. Every year “Vogue” hosts Fashion’s Night Out, a worldwide shopping event whose goal is to help boost the economy. World-renowned designer Michael Kors recently gave $5 million to a hot meal non-profit based in New York City, and celebrities often design T-shirts whose profits go to AIDS and breast cancer awareness charities. Now that’s a reason to celebrate fashion.
And while those efforts are great, they’re also a once a year deal. Luckily, there are some fashion companies that contribute 100 percent of the time — and you’re about to meet them. Whether it’s a trendy T-shirt made for building self-esteem, or a handmade bracelet that can feed a child in need, there’s a little something for everyone.
