But if you need one more reason, it’s that Portland mom and Dishy Duds designer Jennifer McMullen is wildly committed to using her profits to help those in need.
Jennifer has started her own Darfur awareness campaign via her website to petition for stronger US and UN political intervention to put a stop to the tragic crisis in the Sudan. Furthermore, she puts her money where her mouth is, donating 10% of her monthly sales to the Mercy Corps’ Crisis in Darfur fund.
There’s nothing wrong with forking over a buck for a squished, melted cupcake at your local school’s bake sale to contribute to charity. But we say, spend a little more and end up with a cool-looking kid to boot. -Liz
