Heart tee for a great cause

Need a heart-shaped gift? Want to show your love to the recipient AND help others in the process? How do you like this t-shirt?

{found via Cool Mom Picks}

For each Joyful Heart t-shirt purchased, Michael Stars will give a tee to a survivor of violence and abuse, and donate $5 to the Joyful Heart Foundation. Founded by Mariska Hargitay, the mission of the Joyful Heart Foundation is to heal, educate, and empower survivors of sexual assault, domestic violence and child abuse and shed light into the darkness that surrounds these issues. I find it incredible that she did such an wonderful thing...she received letter after letter from survivors looking for help (due to her her role on Law & Order: SVU) and she created a place for them to get that help. What an amazing role model (and I'm not just saying that cause I copied her haircut either)!

Not a t-shirt kind of gal? There are so many great things in the Heartshop (sold directly through Joyful Heart Foundation) including the Fearlessness necklace & bracelet (designed by Me&Ro). Love it!

And Philosophy has a Joyful Heart shower gel & body lotion (it's peony-scented too). Who doesn't love Philosophy? I'm linking to their "shop for a cause" page as I think all of their charity efforts are well worth supporting!

I hope you consider making a difference with your purchases. I know a lot of people have come out against charity products such as these in recent years saying that your money is better spent on a donation. While that is ultimately true, I find these types of products make incredible gifts! You are giving something special, meaningful and useful, while giving (at least in part) to a charity and increasing awareness for a cause.
