THE JOYFUL HEART COLLECTION
The Joyful Heart Foundation was founded in 2004 by Mariska Hargitay with the mission heal, educate and empower survivors of sexual assault, domestic violence and child abuse, and to shed light into the darkness that surrounds these issues. This holiday season, we released our original JHF x Michael Stars tee collection to raise awareness for survivors. 25% of each tee sold will be donated to Joyful Heart Foundation with a minimum of $25,000.Joyful Heart Raw Edge V-Neck in Black

THE ARTISAN COLLECTION
In our commitment to empower women and create a positive change in the world, we’ve teamed up with Paula Coles, Haiti to launch the Artisan Collection. The exclusive collection offers an assortment of linen anorak jackets featuring unique, hand-beaded designs. Not only does it generate employment for Haitian families, but $100 from each purchase also goes towards a student’s annual tuition and supplies through PRODEV schools, an NGO that strives to offer the best, most innovative education in Haiti.
