We Heart: FEED Bag

We here at The Blonde & The Brunette want to spread the love and encourage you to buy gifts that give back.

Not only  do I love the design and look of the FEED bags, but the meaning behind them  is even better.  The FEED foundation is on a tireless mission to raise money through the sale of products to provide over 60 million school meals to children around the world through UN World Food Programme (WFP). FEED has also partnered with the US Fund for UNICEF to supply food supplements for needy children.

I keep these bags stocked in my house to give as gifts for any occasion.  I use my FEED bags as my grocery shopping bag, a day-to-night bag, a gym bag; the uses are endless.

The FEED program began in 2006 when Lauren Bush designed a bag to benefit the United Nations World Food Programme’s (WFP) School Feeding program. Lauren “took a special interest in WFP’s School Feeding program, which feeds and educates hungry children. She first created the FEED 1 bag, a reversible burlap and organic cotton bag reminiscent of the bags of food distributed by WFP, to help raise funds and awareness around these school feeding operations. It was stamped with “FEED the children of the world” and the number ‘1’ to signify that each bag feeds one child in school for one year.” -FEED Foundation

I support this wonderful cause and I encourage you to pay it forward as well.
