I read this originally over at the Preppy Princess blog (http://thepreppyprincess.wordpress.com/) and thought it was worth sharing.The wonderful Brooks Brothers is donating suits valued at $1 million to the Dignity U Wear program, a partnership with the Wounded Warriors project.
The idea is to make professional wardrobes available to wounded veterans so they can find jobs in the civilian workforce, a daunting task. In addition to the clothing donation Brooks is also helping raise cash, they hosted their first fundraiser at the New York mothership in June. I think this is a tremendous thing and as a retailer they have gone up 100% in my estimation. It's one thing to speak about respect for others and another to practice it.
