Today is the beginning of National Women’s Business Week (October 18-22). As a woman with an entrepreneurial spirit, I love to hear about the stories of women who succeed in business. Tory Burch is one such woman and she is helping others see their dreams come true too!
Lifestyle designer, Tory Burch announces the launch of a special collection to benefit the Tory Burch Foundation*. It includes great gifts, from a Pop Art silk scarf and leather wrap bracelets to key chains and a sunflower pendant, inspired by a necklace Tory’s father Buddy had made for his mother. The sunflower is also the foundation’s symbol and is featured on all foundation products. All proceeds from sales benefit the Tory Burch Foundation.
“This is a collection of gifts that give back,” says Tory Burch. “I am honored to donate the proceeds from these sales to help women entrepreneurs achieve their goals.”
Included in this special collection is Tory’s second limited edition compilation CD. All proceeds from the CD benefit Accion USA, the microfinance partner for the Tory Burch Foundation, which works to provide economic opportunities to women and their families in the U.S. “This is a perfect way to combine two of my passions—music and giving back to the community,” says Burch. Burch has personally chosen the songs featured on the CD, and the list reflects her eclectic taste in music. The CD includes Citizen Cope with Carlos Santana, Kanye West, K’naan, Michael Franti, Neville Brothers, Santigold, The Smiths and Wyclef Jean.
The CD is available exclusively at Tory Burch boutiques and on www.toryburch.com for $16.99.
