Fashion and Charity-Part 5

The next organization that I focused on is the Fashion Fights Poverty. The organization is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) fashion fundraiser in Washington D.C. Founded in 2005, the organization "it rewards and recognizes designers and organizations who embrace the powerful potential of creativity and design to address issues of poverty by adhering to such principles as fair trade, equitable compensation and the use of environmentally-sustainable materials." The second goal "providing equally attractive marketing and branding platforms between ethical designers and the growing population of socially-conscious shoppers."

The organization has partnered with schools throughout the community to fund clothing and textile programs. They also have created projects in other countries to provide sustainable income for individuals and families in developing countries.
