Grace & Lace Founder spent the summer as a teenager working in India, and visiting Indian Orphanages. This experience changed her life and became the cornerstone of a giving aspect of her company. Founder Lindsay Russo believes that God has given her success in business as a platform – a platform to inspire others to dream big and beyond their wildest imaginations.

Grace & Lace partnered with Angel House in 2013. A portion of every Grace & Lace sale, including those that come through iGive.com, go toward building orphanages in India.angelhouse-logo.png

Angel House, with the help of Grace & Lace built two orphanages in the summer of 2014 and 5 more in 2015.  Angel House orphanages each house 50 children. This means that because of Angel House more than 350 children have mattresses to sleep on, fresh water and food, schooling and more.

About Grace & Lace

Grace & Lace started in the fall of 2011, when the founder made her first pair of lacey leg warmers. She them up for sale online and in a matter of days I was overwhelmed with orders. Now, just a few years later, Grace and Lace has become a full-blown women’s apparel company with trademarked designs, a full studio and warehouse, and friends and family as staff.

About Angel House

What began as one house construction for that special group of children has now grown into a multifaceted charitable organization which exists to rescue abandoned orphans and provide them with a new life by giving them a home, a family, and an education. Hundreds of orphans and street children who would otherwise be trapped in forced child labor, human trafficking, or begging on the streets now have a safe place to call home. It is the mission of Angel House to bring abandoned children from the slum to safety and into the loving arms of caretakers that will educate, love and raise them to become future leaders in their generation.

Red Nose Day’s official retail partner makes more Red Noses available and expands Red Nose Day merchandise to help raise funds to fight kids’ poverty

Championing everyone’s right to be happy and healthy, Walgreens proudly returns as the exclusive retail partner of the second annual Red Nose Day, helping raise funds to fight kids’ poverty. The campaign’s iconic Red Noses – which people wear in support of the official Red Nose Day on Thursday, May 26 – returned to store shelves at Walgreens and Duane Reade locations nationwide this morning, officially kick starting the nine-week charitable campaign.

Following the sell-out success of last year’s inaugural Red Nose Day, Walgreens is going beyond the nose in 2016 and raising funds through the sale of new Red Flair merchandise, also available nationwide starting today. From red hats and springy novelty headbands to oversized sequin bowties and Red Noses for cars (to name a few), Walgreens is making it even easier for Americans to “Get Seriously Silly” in support of a great cause.

“Helping people live happy and healthy lives is our passion at Walgreens, and participating in Red Nose Day lets us do just that for those who need it most: kids living in poverty in the U.S. and abroad,” said Alex Gourlay, president of Walgreens. “Topping last year’s success is a challenge we’re ready for. We have more Red Noses, new Red Flair and several other fun ways for everyone in the Walgreens family – from our valued customers and vendor partners to our passionate team members – to get involved in this powerful campaign.”

The Return of the Red Noses        
Between now and the official Red Nose Day in May, Walgreens hopes to sell significantly more Red Noses than the 5 million it sold last year. To help meet its goal, Red Noses and Red Flair hit Walgreens shelves two weeks earlier this year, giving Americans even more time to “Get Seriously Silly” in support of a great cause. Starting today and continuing through June 4, Walgreens and Duane Reade locations nationwide will sell Red Noses for $1 each and Red Flair items for between $1-$5.99. Proceeds from Red Nose and Red Flair purchases benefit the Red Nose Day Fund* which supports charities with domestic and international reach aimed at fighting childhood poverty, including Boys & Girls Clubs of America; charity:water; Children’s Health Fund; Covenant House; Feeding America; Gavi, The Vaccine Alliance; National Council of La Raza; National Urban League; Oxfam America; Save the Children; and The Global Fund.

Beyond purchasing Red Noses and Red Flair for themselves, Americans can further support the cause by purchasing Red Noses and Red Flair products for their schools or workplaces, or organize fundraisers in their community. Cash donations can also be made at any Walgreens location.

Walgreens commemorated the return of the laughs and Red Nose Day fun with the help of actor and comedian Ravi Patel (Grandfathered, Masters of None), who helped deliver the first batch of Red Noses and Red Flair to Walgreens shelves in Chicago, the retailer’s hometown. Accompanied by Walgreens team members, Patel arrived at Walgreens flagship store in a Red Nose Day-adorned armored truck. With security in place, a briefcase full of Red Noses and Red Flair handcuffed to his arm and a store full of unsuspecting shoppers, Patel successfully delivered the Red Nose Day fun to Walgreens. The event was captured on film and is posted on the Walgreens YouTube channel.

#RedNose Road Trip & Challenges
Together with Walgreens, Patel will continue the fun online by inviting Americans to “Get Seriously Silly” on social media with weekly #RedNose challenges. Starting today and continuing every Monday leading up to Red Nose Day, Patel will accept the weekly #RedNose challenge from Walgreens with a silly video and task Americans to join in. The challenges include “Share your four-legged friend’s #RedNose look,” “Share your #RedNose Mom & Me Flair selfie,” and “Share your #RedNose landmark photo,” among others. People can share their silliest pictures and videos answering the challenge on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram using the hashtag #RedNose.

Weekly #RedNose challenge videos will be featured as part of a new Walgreens “50 States, 50 Stories” video series to live on Walgreens.com/RedNoseDay. In the series, Walgreens takes Red Nose Day on the road in search of powerful stories showing people both supporting and benefitting from Red Nose Day. The uplifting, fun-filled stories will showcase real people’s charitable Red Nose Day efforts in action across the country.

Walgreens “nose” consumers aren’t the only ones who know how to have fun for a great cause. Later this week, Walgreens executives will issue a Corporate Challenge to colleagues at other companies encouraging them to share funny videos and show America their silly sides. In the coming weeks Walgreens Facebook page will show just how silly corporate America can get to help fight kids’ poverty around the world.

Beyond the Nose
In the UK, Red Nose Day has raised more than $1 billion since it launched over 25 years ago and is an inspiring cultural phenomenon that unites people from all walks of life in the interest of saving and changing lives. The inaugural Red Nose Day event in the U.S. took place last May and raised more than $23 million to help kids in need in America and abroad.

This year, Red Nose Day’s nine-week campaign will culminate in a live, two-hour broadcast on NBC airing on May 26 (9-11 p.m. ET). The Red Nose Day Special will feature popular comedians, top musicians and Hollywood stars in an engaging mix of comedy, live musical performances and short, compelling films shedding light on the cause.

In honor of Earth Day and the brand’s commitment to the environment, Kiehl’s Since 1851, the venerable New York-based purveyor of fine quality skin and hair care is proud to announce two new products and programs that directly impact the environment.

First, the company will donate $50,000 to Recycle Across America™, the not-for-profit organization dedicated to delivering society-wide solutions that eliminate public confusion around recycling, stimulate the environmental economy and expedite progress. These funds will be used to create 65,000 standardized recycling labels for 650 K-12 schools in the United States.

The funds will be raised from Kiehl’s Limited Edition Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado, featuring art by socially conscious influencers Nikki Reed, Gabrielle Reece & Laird Hamilton. 100% of net profits, up to $50,000, from this Earth Day campaign will benefit Recycle Across America™. To date, Kiehl’s has already raised $300,000 for the non-profit, supplying recycling labels to 4,500 schools, including School Districts in San Diego, Houston, Scottsdale and Culver City.

“We’ve been working with Recycle Across America since 2012. Their mission to introduce solutions that make recycling more simple, comprehensive and effective in the United States is perfectly aligned with our values,” says Chris Salgardo, President, Kiehl’s USA. Through our Recycle & Be Rewarded program, Kiehl’s has collected 3,000,000 empty Kiehl’s bottles from our shoppers and recycled them on their behalf. We hope to reach the 3,500,000 mark this year!”

In tandem with the launch, Kiehl’s is encouraging its customers to recycle by giving every customer a complimentary Kiehl’s tote with every purchase of $100 or more, in any Kiehl’s store and at Kiehls.com, through April 27th. The company is also celebrates its own renewed Recycle and Be Rewarded! program, in which customers at Kiehl’s stores are rewarded with free product for bringing in their empty Kiehl’s bottles, tubes and jars for recycling. Since 2009, Kiehl’s has recycled more than 3,000,000 bottles. In order to further decrease the company’s environmental footprint, it is no longer issuing printed Recycle and be Rewarded! cards. Instead, customers’ recycle count will be tracked digitally.

In other product news, Kiehl’s has introduced a new skincare formula using quinoa husk extract, derived from discarded quinoa husks, meaning that what was once considered waste is now a unique skincare innovation. For the first time in a facial skincare product, quinoa husk extract has been formulated into the company’s new anti-aging overnight treatment, Kiehl’s Dermatologist Solutions™ Nightly Refining Micro-Peel Concentrate. The formula offers accelerated cell turnover to reveal refined texture, improved skin tone and softer, more radiant skin.

Quinoa Husk Extract is sustainably sourced from the protective outer shell of the Quinoa seed without chemical alteration and with minimal environmental impact. In this formula, its powerful exfoliating properties work to help accelerate surface skin’s nighttime cell turnover process to release dull surface skin.

In partnership with Bolivian suppliers and a foundation that sustainably source the quinoa husk from local farmers, and promote the conservation and responsible use of natural Bolivian resources, Kiehl’s use of this ingredient targets to provide  in 3 years socio-economic development for 250 Bolivian farms and their families as well as contribute to protect the environment.

About Recycle Across America:
Recycle Across America® (RAA) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization which has developed the first ever society-wide standardized labeling system for recycling bins to help eliminate the public confusion surrounding recycling. The standardized labels are being used by some of the most notable companies in the world and are resulting in more than 50% increases in recyclables being collected — with significantly less trash being thrown in the recycling bins. As a result, the economics of processing recyclables becomes more viable and stable, thereby allowing more companies to commit to using recycled materials in their manufacturing. For this reason, RAA and the standardized labels have been identified as a world-changing solution by Ashoka Innovators for the Public, and have been referred to as “…one of the top environmental fixes taking root today,” by the New York Times.
