When it comes to the ideal stocking stuffer, it usually has to fit three criteria. 1. It should be fun. 2. It should be useful. 3. It should be affordable. At Ardene, not only do these holiday slippers tick all three boxes, but proceeds towards the slippers go towards a really good cause. Through a combination of slipper sales (ranging from $7 to $30) plus a $1 donation option at the checkout, Ardene has pledged to raise $350,000 for Starlight Children’s foundation’s Canada-wide initiatives.
In particular, they’ve teamed up with Ward + Robes, the part of the foundation that creates unique gowns for hospitalized teens, bringing them a bit of joy and empowerment, despite their illness. “This gown lets me be who I am outside of the hospital and outside of being ill.” “It feels like I’m myself, it doesn’t feel like I’m in a hospital anymore.” If that ain’t a worthy cause, we don’t know what is.
Now, onto the slippers!
