If you’ve been reading my blog for a couple years now, you know my parents are in their fourth year as resident directors for A Better Chance in my hometown of Darien, Connecticut. ABC is a national organization that provides high school scholarships to academically talented students of color from underserved communities and it’s been such a gift to get to know the eight ABC scholars my parents have lived with for each of the past four years. If you’re curious to learn more, definitely check out this interview I did with my parents all about how they became involved. It’s a great story and a special cause that’s near and dear to our hearts!
You can imagine my delight when Erin, the owner of Shop Navy Bleu, reached out to introduce her e-commerce site and to brainstorm a way we could give back to the eight young women who have become an extension of my immediate family. We all know navy blue is my primary love language (#navyornothing!) so I was instantly smitten with her assortment of navy blue clothing, accessories, and home decor, but I was particularly touched by her offer to support ABC.
It gives me goosebumps to share that Erin and Shop Navy Bleu made a $5,000 donation and will be donating 20% of this week’s sales to the ABC program in Darien. There’s nothing better than a small business with heart but to say we were absolutely floored by their generosity is an understatement! These funds will support the ABC scholars in so many ways and I hope you will join me in shopping for a good cause! Below I’ve rounded up my favorite Shop Navy Bleu picks from brands I love like Draper James, Gal Meets Glam, Sail to Sable and over on Instagram we’ll be giving away a $200 gift card to one lucky winner. There’s also a link to donate on their website — we’d be so grateful for any way you’re able to offer support!
