Around Town CA: Shop InFORa Cause’s Holiday Picks
Happy Thanksgiving from the House of G&C family! I hope everyone has been able to enjoy great food, a day off from work and quality time with your loved ones. As we head into the retail holiday with Black Friday specials starting tomorrow (or even tonight for the ambitious shoppers), I encourage you to shop consciously, and remember to think about those who are less fortunate than we are. And speaking of family, I’m excited to share my look good, do good, give back soapbox with friend, and fellow social giving advocate, Nick Ventura from inFORa Cause.
inFORa CAUSE is a socially conscious retail store that only sells products made by brands that are fighting to bring an end to the worlds social injustices. The inFORa Cause team is composed of storytellers behind these brands and their products.
Starting tonight, Thursday, Nov. 27th, shop inFOR a Cause in two SoCal locations, one in Valencia and the other in Northridge, or shop online here. For the Black Friday event, each customer gets to take 15% OFF their entire inFORa Cause purchase. For the first 5 shoppers at either location to spend over $100, receive an InFORa Cause goodie bag (valued at over $40, USD) pictured below:
InFORa Cause brands that I love include Article 22 accessories, Krochet Kids accessories and apparel, Giving Keys accessories, WeWOOD watches and Denik notebooks. If you’re familiar with some of my favorite picks, I’ll let Nick share his favorite giving brands and inspire you to shop.
