Stay Warm For A Good Cause

Fight the winter chill this year and fight against hunger. That’s right; this coming season you can do both. Fashion designer Thakoon Panichgul has created a fashionable and charitable way to take on the trends. Thakoon comes from a diverse background; he was born in Thailand, raised in Omaha, and resides in New York. He is well known for that bold, plaid pattern seen on his runways, and now he is taking that trend to a benevolent level. Thakoon Panichgul has been described on numerous occasions as being “innovative” and taking a look at what he has in store for us in the upcoming months, he could be described as nothing less. The designer has publicized a scarf embodying his famous checks, but the kicker is one hundred percent of the earnings will go to the fight against hunger in Africa. That is correct; all proceeds will benefit the international children’s relief organization in the Horn of Africa.

As the news is always highlighting designers and various funds joining forces to raise money for all the causes that now exist, not one of them ever donates everything they make to their charity of choice. Most of the time, they do not even release the percentage getting donated from the customers purchase. As the eyebrows rise, Thakoon takes the step up over the rest. Thakoon’s focus is the Horn of Africa, where many of the African countries are located that are being devastated by hunger and famine. The Horn of Africa includes countries such as Ethiopia, Kenya, Djibouti, and Somalia. The funds Thakoon and his scarves raise will benefit these countries and the people of them. The scarves are going for $250, and for a designer look with the added bonus of feeding the hungry, the price sounds good. Not to mention, these scarves are the first piece Thakoon has released to the market that are unisex. As the designer is well known for his feminine and romantic designs, this piece takes the cake on innovation. Help the cause! And no excuses, this item is for men and women alike.
