Figs Ties | Helping Kids Go to School – $70 – $135
$70 for any old necktie is a lot, but after finding this out… Figs ties seem like an incredible deal. From their site:
In many parts of Africa a child may not attend school without a proper uniform. This is due to the strict rules about pride in appearance within most cultures. Unfortunately many areas are stricken with poverty and so countless children do not have uniforms, resulting in lack of education quickly becoming a widespread epidemic.
Think of it this way. You’re not buying a tie. You’re buying a young person in Africa a school uniform they’d buy for themselves in a second, only if they had the resources. These kids want to go to school. They want to learn. And you can help them do that.
You just happen to get a sweet necktie in return. Here’s some suggestions:
- Gray Henri Wool & Silk Blend – $135.00
- Navy Paz Tartan Fine Wool – $125.00
- Blue Walcott Pindot Silk (seen above) – $135.00
- Blue Collegiate Stripe Silk – $70.00
Any one of those would make a perfect gift for the socially conscious man. And maybe that man is you.
