    If you haven't yet found time to hit up one of our cool local volunteer opps — we feel you — it's been a busy summer! Well, the cheery news is that you still have a chance to give back, from right behind your desk chair. And at R29, you know we love a good marriage — Giuseppe Zanotti for Thakoon, Maison Martin Margiela for H&M (you get the idea!), but perhaps our favorite love story of all is one between high fashion and charity. The fabulous likes of Kate Spade, Vanessa Bruno, and Solange Azagury-Partridge have all teamed up with foundations to raise awareness and inspire us all to pay it forward.

Scroll through our slideshow for our top picks, and feel the warm fuzzies emanate from the screen!
