After the devastating explosion in Beirut, which killed over a hundred people, left thousands injured and nearly half of the city's population displaced, people from all over the world are looking for ways to help. While countries have offered assistance and various organizations have raised funds for the capitol of Lebanon, brands are also doing their part. London-based brand Story mfg. has collaborated with Greater Goods, a brand focused on sustainability and upcycling, to produce a set of bags to raise money for the affected region.
The collaboration uses leftover materials from Story's previous seasons, a range of naturally-dyed fabrics, to create stunning nine-piece collection of one-off pieces. All on offer via eBay, every cent raised from the auctions will go to Impact Lebanon, a non-profit organization focused on activism and humanitarian efforts throughout Lebanon. The auction ends Wednesday, but you don't need to buy a bag to help; you can help provide disaster relief by donating to Impact Lebanon here. There are many other organizations focused on providing relief, including the Lebanese Red Cross, the Lebanese Food Bank, Amel Association, an organization providing health and psychological services, as well as many others.
