Time to get a jump on the winter wardrobe, we're teaming up with 77Kids to spread holiday cheer and fashion. This week we sat in on an exclusive holiday presentation. The black and white (with splashes of red and pink) collection is crazy cool and sure to be a hit with your little hipsters. But this season isn't just about looking good, it's also about DOING good.
We've got a crafty and easy way for your family to give back--by making snowflakes for kids in need.
First lets talk fashion. There's plenty of it in American Eagle's children's collection. No frill or stiffness, holidays are playful and rockin' at 77kids. Look for touches of sequins for girls (we "heart" the tuxedo sequin leggings, just $19.50) and skulls and crossbones for boys (check out the skull patch sweater$39.50). Moms can expect amazing values and clothes that your kids are going to love wearing.
Now on to the feel-good portion. 77kids has dreamed up an incredible digital snowflake program. For each snowflake made, 77kids will donate $1 to local children's hospitals. And if hit the magic 100,000 snowflakes number, 77kids will donate an additional $25,000 to our local children's hospitals! It took my daughter and I just a few minutes to make this beauty:
