This week is National Women’s Business Week (October 18-22). As a business woman myself, I love hearing about success stories from other women. They are motivating and inspiring all at once. One such woman is the amazing Tory Burch and she is helping others make their dreams come true through her foundation.
This is a special collection to benefit the Tory Burch Foundation. It includes fantastic gifts, from a Pop Art silk scarf and leather wrap bracelets (my faves!!) to key chains and a sunflower pendant, inspired by a necklace Tory’s father Buddy had made for his mother. The sunflower is also the foundation’s symbol and is featured on all foundation products. All proceeds from sales benefit the foundation.
“This is a collection of gifts that give back,” says Tory Burch. “I am honored to donate the proceeds from these sales to help women entrepreneurs achieve their goals.” says Burch.
Also included in this special collection is Tory’s second limited edition compilation CD (this CD rocks!). All proceeds from the CD benefit Accion USA, the microfinance partner for the Tory Burch Foundation, which works to provide economic opportunities to women and their families in the U.S. “This is a perfect way to combine two of my passions—music and giving back to the community,” says Burch. The eclectic songs featured on the CD were personally chosen by Burch and include artists like Laura Izibor, Melanie Fiona, , Kanye West, Neville Brothers, Santigold, The Smiths and Wyclef Jean.
*About Tory Burch Foundation: Tory launched the Tory Burch Foundation in 2009 to economically empower women. In partnership with ACCION USA, the Foundation supports women through mentoring and microfinance; women are able to start and grow their own businesses, in turn helping their communities, revitalizing local economies and providing for their families.
I am excited to see a successful woman give back like this!!
The retail range is from $16.99 for the Foundation CD to $195 for the silk scarf. The collection is available in Tory Burch boutiques and on toryburch.com . A second collection of tote bags, towels and an umbrella will be available in November.
