Date:5/17/2010

Lord & Taylor, together with UNICEF and FEED Projects, is selling an exclusive “FEED 1 Guatemala” pouch and “FEED 3 Guatemala” tote. Purchase a FEED bag from Lord & Taylor and FEED will provide nutrients for one or three children for a year respectively through UNICEF’s nutrition programs in Guatemala. Look great and feel great by getting your bag today either online or at a Lord & Taylor store!

(PRWEB) May 17, 2010 -- Lord & Taylor has partnered with FEED Projects to exclusively sell a “FEED 1 Guatemala” pouch and “FEED 3 Guatemala” tote. Under the leadership of Lauren Bush, CEO, Creative Director and co-Founder of FEED Projects LLC, funds raised through the purchase of the bags will help the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) provide daily nutrient powder for one child or three children (respectively) in Guatemala for one year.

“Lord & Taylor is thrilled to support the FEED Project and UNICEF’s mission to promote health and well-being for children in Guatemala,” says Liz Rodbell, Lord & Taylor’s Executive Vice President of Merchandising. “We are certain that this program will help raise public awareness of the cause in a fashionable, exciting way.”

According to UNICEF, “Guatemala has one of the worst nutritional conditions in the region. Nearly 23% of children over three months and under five years of age suffered from general malnutrition, while almost one-half suffered from chronic malnutrition in 2006.” For every “FEED 1 Guatemala” pouch and “FEED 3 Guatemala” bag sold by Lord & Taylor, FEED will donate $3.50 or $10.50 respectively to the U.S. Fund for UNICEF to help support UNICEF’s nutrition programs in Guatemala. Both the pouch and the tote bag are available for purchase at any Lord & Taylor store in the U.S. and online at Lord & Taylor FEED

The FEED Guatemala bags are handmade by Nest, a nonprofit organization that empowers female artists and artisans around the world. The Guatemalan Nest artisans used their traditional Ikat fabrics to make the fun and handy “FEED 1 Guatemala” zippered pouch and the sturdy and sizable “FEED 3 Guatemala” tote bag. The variety of colors and woven patterns reflects the vibrant Guatemalan culture and gives each customer an array of colors and patterns to choose from. Purchase of the bags celebrates the traditional crafts of Guatemala and supports women artisans, while also generating funding to help UNICEF provide micronutrient supplements to children so they grow up stronger, healthier and better equipped to move beyond extreme poverty.

These bags are a great way to help children in need not only by the donations but also by increasing awareness… And you’ll look great while doing it! The “FEED 1 Guatemala” pouch and “FEED 3 Guatemala” tote cost $19 and $39, respectively. Both can be purchased at Lord & Taylor stores in the US and online.
