Ashley and I love our FEED bags. They are cute and durable which makes them perfect for everyday use, but the reason we carry them has more to do with the brand’s mission than anything else.
FEED was founded in 2007 by Lauren Bush Lauren. Lauren, a former model, niece of G.W., granddaughter of H.W., and now daughter-in-law to Ralph Lauren, was a student ambassador with The World Food Program in 2005. Her experiences in Africa with the WFP are what inspired her to originally create the FEED 1 Bag. Each bag sold would provide enough money to feed a child in school for one year. Today the FEED brand is so much bigger than just the FEED 1 Bag. They have tees, bracelets, accessories, totes, and more. Most of their products are made using natural fabrics, and some also support local artisans.
I was given a FEED bag this past Christmas by my dear friend Kristin. I was so grateful, not just for the lovely gift but for the consciousness behind it. She made me think – how much good could I do if I made it a point to give and shop with more intention?
It is a small change that can make a huge difference. Now every chance Ashley and I get, we’re buying something from this amazing company because helping others, especially those in need, is something that is incredibly important to both of us. We’ve compiled our favorite FEED products below in – Our FEED Wish List – and we hope that the next time you give, you choose to give twice.
