Giving Back Through Fashion: "How You Can Help Haiti through Purchasing Timberland Products"

by Anita F. Hill

For those of you who may not know, but Wyclef Jean recently partnered with Timberland to support reforestation efforts in Haiti. In October 2009, Timberland launched the Timberland Earthkeepers Yele Haiti boots and most recently added Tshirts designed by Haitian children to the collection. Initially, for every purchase of of the Yele Haiti collection, Timberland was to make a donation to Haiti to help plant a tree in Haiti and promote environmental education. However, with the tragic earthquake on January 12, Timberland will now make the donations toward the country's earthquake relief. Timberland has also set up a link on it's website where you can make a donation to help Haiti's earthquake survivors, raising 1 million dollars within 24 hours.
