Making one’s own clothes requires corralling a herd of sheep, feeding them rainbows to dye them different colors, and hiring a professional hairdresser to braid them into sweaters. Outfit yourself with fancy threads more practically with today’s deal: for $25, you get $55 worth of clothing, accessories, and more at Philanthropy Fashion + Compassion in Franklin. This Groupon is not valid for online purchases or for sale items.
A locally owned and operated fashion boutique, Philanthropy pledges at least 10% of its sales every year to charitable causes such as the Sudan Evangelical Alliance Partners, which helps financially and educationally in the war-torn region, and the Hands and Feet Project, which assists a children’s village in Haiti. Shoppers can showcase their bighearted dispositions without handing out frozen turkeys at local swimming pools by donning a variety of fashionable threads, such as the Aid Sudan men’s T-shirt ($25), Hope for Haiti women’s T-shirt ($25), or Power of One bag ($45) that’s handy for concealing mogwais and toting around livestock feed. Whatever clothing or cause you go with, try accessorizing it with jewelry such as the Village of Hope bangle ($14) and necklace ($24) rather than your usual beard of bees.
Philanthropy Fashion + Compassion’s striking décor of ceiling-mounted windows and vibrant chandeliers adds a surreal elegance to an afternoon of helping behind-the-times friends update their foppish pantaloons and powdered wigs with more fashionable finery. Rock benevolent threads during your next walk or jetpack through town with today’s stylish Groupon to Philanthropy Fashion + Compassion.
