Kim was at her daughter's orthodontist appointment when she ran into one of our clients with an amazing burlap tote bag. Our client explained that part of the proceeds went to "Feed the children of the world", and the bag was designed by Lauren Bush! We did a little more research this morning, and are excited to tell you that soon The Willows will be carrying these bags as well!

Here is a little background taken from the "FEED" website, which explains the groups mission for the bags.
"FEED Projects was started in 2006 when acclaimed model and activist Lauren Bush designed a bag to benefit the United Nations World Food Program's (WFP) School Feeding operations. Lauren, a WFP Honorary Spokesperson who has visited eight WFP food aid operations around the world, was inspired by the plight of the people she met on her travels. She took a special interest in WFP's School Feeding program, which feeds and educates hungry children.
Inspired by the aesthetic of the bags of food distributed by WFP, she created the FEED 1 bag, a reversible burlap and cotton bag stamped with "FEED the children of the world" and the number "1" to signify that each bag feeds one child in school for one year."

To read more on this bag and the "FEED" team (they even have their own blog!) go to http://www.feedprojects.org/.

Call us if you would like to reserve one of these bags now! Supplies are limited! We ordered only two of the "FEED 2" bags as well if you'd like to reserve one early!
