You all know about FEED Projects , right? It’s the philanthropic company started by Lauren Bush and my girl Ellen Gustafson, with sales from each of their awesome bags feeding children in countries like Kenya, Guatemala and Haiti.
In a excellent move sure to raise FEED’s profile even further, they’ve teamed with Patrick Robinson and the Gap to design 2 bags benefitting FEED USA , working to improve school food and nutrition education right here in America. $5 from the sale of every bag will be donated to the National School Lunch Program in conjunction with DonorsChoose.org .
Last night, the Gap store on Robertson hosted the launch party, and I swung by to hug and congratulate Ellen, sip a delicious, antioxidant-packed VeeV Red, White and Blue cocktail and chat with VeeV co-founder (and college chum) Carter Reum before buying a FEED USA tote and running out to a dinner party. (Speaking of VeeV, they’re the world’s 1st carbon neutral spirits company, and they donate $1 from every bottle back to the Brazilian rainforest through the Sustainable Amazon Project.)
I am dorky shyness to-the-max at events like these, so I didn’t have the courage to say hello to Lauren or any of the celebs in attendance like Kristen Bell, Kathy and Nicky Hilton, Constance Zimmer or Elizabeth Berkeley, but I totally wanted to accost Kristen Bell and tell her that we should be best friends.
