Designers Turn Out To Support Japan

In the wake of the tragic events in Japan, some of our favorite companies are finding creative ways to give back. Here’s a rundown of some great ways to donate to a very worthy cause:

“Whatever your personal style, doing good makes your feel good,” Kenneth Cole recently told W. With 100% of net profits going back to the American Red Cross, the designer’s t-shirt (above) certainly inspires the do-gooder in all of us.

Fifty percent of net proceeds from the sale of The Light of Tokyo (above), a sweeping book of black and white photography of the city from Jean-Michel Berts, will go to local victims of the natural disaster through the American Red Cross.
