We've been obsessing over The Cambridge Satchel Company's fluro bags for months now, and when we noticed they were the It-bags of New York Fashion Week this spring, we knew the trend had officially gone viral. And although we've been obsessed with the British-made neon satchels since we first laid eyes on them, we just found out another reason to love them: Julie Deane, the founder of Cambridge Satchel Company, actually started the brand so she could afford to send her daughter to private school after she had been a victim of bullying.

Special thanks to our friends over @MaclarenNA for giving us the heads up about their new "I Believe" buggy. Not only is the bright new stroller super cute, but it was designed for a cause. All proceeds from Maclaren's "I Believe" buggy go to research to help find a cure for Muscular Dystrophy. Nice, right? Maclaren teamed up with Charley's Fund, an awesome charity that works to give money to researchers working toward a cure for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. According to research, an estimated 15,000-20,000 children in America are afflicted with this awful disease that has a 100% fatality rate. So if you're in the market for a new stroller, we highly recommend this one. Not only because it benefits a great cause, but also because Maclaren strollers are amazing. They're lightweight, easy to push and collapse and they're safe for babies as young as 3 months. I've had my Maclaren for over 2 years and I wouldn't even trade it for a Bugaboo.

Prenatal vitamins that are good for your health and your soul? That's what you'll get with Build Nutrition. Following the same one-for-one business model as TOMS footwear and Rockin' Baby Slings baby carriers, for every bottle of Build Nutrition Prenatal Vitamins that you purchase, a bottle will be donated to a pregnant woman in need.

What an easy way to give back, and just imagine what would happen if all companies did the same thing. (more…)
