Welcome to OnSale at FOXBusiness, where we look at cool deals and insane bargains.
This new website wants you to look good – and give back while doing it. A new educational platform tells you all you need to know about using new web tools, and Samsung’s latest tablet is on its way. And music lovers rejoice: streaming music service finally comes to BlackBerry, and YouRenew wants your old iPhone.
Shop for a Cause
Fashion-conscious individuals who like to give back will love this new flash sale site. It’s called Community Collection and it features existing and limited-edition products from the likes of Alexander Wang, Alexis Bittar and Whetherly.
At least 20% of proceeds from apparel purchased benefits organizations that support animals (The World Wildlife Fund), the environment (Heal the Bay), education (Pencils of Promise), health (The American Cancer Society), human services (Operation Homefront) and disaster relief (Operation USA). Each featured designer chooses their favorite cause and dedicates a portion of the sale to their selected charity.
Interested shoppers can register for access to Community Collection sales and sign up for news of new designers by clicking here.
