Lauren Bush and Feed are having a busy fall. The Feed/Read Bags should be available at Barnes & Noble soon. Developed in partnership with the United Nations World Food Program and Room to Read, for each $25 organic cotton tote sold, a child receives three school lunches and three story books.
Feed is also doing a backpack with Kenneth Cole and Millennium Village. For each $125 backpack sold, another bag, filled with bandages, syringes, condoms and more, is given to a traveling health care worker. Available at Kennethcole.com.
Finally, later this fall, Bobbi Brown is launching the Feed 10 Pouch, a makeup bag filled with three of her best-selling lip glosses for $50, according to WWD. It will also benefit the charity. Check back for more details.
This reminded us of one of our favorite, totally addictive online non-profit games, FreeRice. It started as a vocabulary quiz and for each question you get right, 10 grains of rice are donated to the UN World Food Program. We're excited to see they've added new categories. Now you can answer questions about world capitals, grammar, famous paintings and more. You can even quiz yourself on chemistry symbols, but we wouldn't be able to feed a mouse with our chem knowledge!
