December 12, 2019

There are so many ways to do good in this world…who would’ve thought shopping can be one of them? In light of the holiday season, we wanted to showcase a few very special companies that give back to communities in need around the world, meaning your purchase can go a long way. Here at cabi, this sentiment hits close to home.

We started The Heart of cabi Foundation to encourage and empower women in need. Our mission is to serve and invest in women across the globe, whether that’s by distributing clothing in communities affected by natural disasters or by empowering women entrepreneurs in the developing world to work their way out of poverty. To help support The Heart of cabi Foundation, you can purchase the Hothouse Blouse and a portion of the net proceeds will go toward funding our efforts worldwide.
