It’s the most wonderful time of the year to give, donate and empower: Giving Tuesday. In the charitable spirit of this day, we were pleased to give to Dress For Success and to FARE—two organizations that step it up for the greater good all year long!
Established in 2012 by New York City’s 92nd Street Y and its Belfer Center for Innovation & Social Impact, Giving Tuesday started with a simple mission: to encourage people to do good. It has since evolved into an independent nonprofit and a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate and celebrate generosity. Nonprofits, civic organizations, businesses, corporations, families and individuals come together to donate time, resources and talents to address local challenges, bonding the collective power of a unique blend of partners and amplifying small acts of kindness.
Vionic Cares, our charitable foundation, once again participated in Giving Tuesday on November 29th, focusing on food allergy advocacy through FARE and providing women with the professional attire they need to thrive in their careers through Dress For Success.
FARE (Food Allergy Research & Education) is the nation’s leading non-profit engaged in food allergy advocacy as well as the largest private funder of food allergy research. FARE’s innovative education, advocacy and research initiatives transform the future of food allergy through new and improved treatments and prevention strategies, effective policies and legislation, and novel approaches to managing the disease.
Dress For Success, Vionic’s long standing charitable partner, is a global not-for-profit organization that empowers women to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire and the development tools to help women thrive in work and life. Since starting operations in 1997, Dress for Success has expanded to 143 cities in 23 countries and has helped more than 1.3 million women work towards self-sufficiency.
Thank you to all our wonderful customers who helped make our Giving Tuesday an impactful one. We look forward to continuing this annual event next year and far beyond.
