Obsession Alert: Wild Soul Sunglasses, Fusing Fashion & Philanthropy

I love shopping for a good cause, this we know but never have I seen the opportunity where not only do you get to choose your rocking sunglasses but you also get to choose the cause that you want your proceeds to go towards... enter Wild Soul sunglasses. The funky and hip line of sunglasses, all named after untamed animals, help customers "be wild" while helping them "fulfil their soul", giving a portion of each sale to a charity of the customer's choice. I really like this idea; a little because I love sunnies, a little because I love animals, but mostly because I think it's really pretty awesome that the folks at Wild Soul and Young Republic (where the sunnies are sold) offer great choices of truly worthy organizations to support.

"Wild Soul was created on the premise that there are causes greater than our own that can and must be supported. We are dedicated to giving supporters of Wild Soul a platform to help the causes that are close to their heart." -Creators Marc Battipaglia and Andres S Beker

Shoppers have the option to choose from many great charitable organizations including:  Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation, Cancer Care, Children's Tumor Foundation, Habitat for Humanity International, ADEONA, Bread for the World Institute, Greenpeace Fund Inc., Rainforest Alliance and the Animal Welfare Institute. I am sure one of the orgs speaks to you... I know I would actually have a hard time deciding. Another thing I would have a hard time deciding on would be which sunglasses to get! All sunglasses are cool and have an interesting shape and are inspired by small details of the untamed animals mentioned before; the owl, elephant, rhino and lions... but here are some of my faves.

Tortoise Owls
Earth Rhinos
Yellow Elephant
