Your Clothes, Your Color, Your Cause

beacon and brewster

Today I’m featuring the wonderful beacon & brewster. Oh be still my lighthouse-adoring, charity-loving prepster heart. This is quality clothing company with a big-hearted mission.

We all know that certain colors represent different causes— pink for Breast Cancer Awareness, green for Leukemia & Lymphoma, purple for Alzheimer’s (and Epilepsy!), yellow for support of our troops, and so on. beacon & brewster donates 25% of the sales price directly to the charity of the corresponding color. This is one of the more perfect examples I’ve seen of shopping for a cause.

Choose your charity: Alzheimer’s Association, Boston Children’s Hospital, Cure Alzheimer’s Fund, Fallen Patriot Fund, Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, Make-A-Wish Foundation, National Breast Cancer Coalition, The Breast Cancer Research Foundation, Wounded Warrior Project, Delta Gamma Foundation, or list another!

Like my New England Outerwear boat shoes, these polos are manufactured in New England with all American-made materials. And did you notice the sweet lighthouse logo? From b&b:
“As a recognized symbol of reassurance and hope to sailors as they navigated difficult waters, the lighthouse underscores our hope of providing support to the charities we donate to through the sales of our shirts.”

So next time you’re on the market for a new polo or tee [for men, women, and children], I hope you’ll consider beacon & brewster— I have my eye on the lilac shirt for my next purchase! Which reminds me— summer is coming to an end, oddly meaning that the holiday season is already upon us. How thoughtful of a gift would be one that benefits more than just the recipient? Now you’re able to donate money in your friends’ and families’ names, while still giving them something physical to keep. Cold Christmas? No problem— I’ve been having fun layering my polo with sweaters, so I can definitely attest to this being a year-round purchase!
