We're all about making it easier to do good deeds, so we're happy to share news of a couple of lines with LA ties that are producing quality products that support quality causes. First up: the glamorous bangle from Korcula that's part of a campaign to help mitigate poverty in Rwanda and Kenya. Proceeds from the sale of the bangles are used to employ the workers manufacturing the pieces. Next up: LA-based indie sneaks company Keep is teaming up with Animal Collective on a line of shoes to benefit the Socorro Island Conservation Fund. No pics available for the collab yet, but it has been confirmed (and naturally, it's setting the music blogs on fire). Details on this one, soon.
