It's back: This month kicks off Children's Hospital Los Angeles' annual Make March Matter campaign — and once again, over 100 L.A. businesses are joining in on the charitable effort to raise $1 million or more to support children's health, including pediatric cancer care and other life-saving treatments and research.
Now through March 31, philanthropic Angelenos can shop, sweat, and eat while helping CHLA. Fashion brands and retailers are donating 20% of sales, including Rachel Zoe's Curateur subscription (you'll also get $25 off your first box and gift with purchase); Gift Lab LA; fine jewelry designers Andrea Fohrman and Jacquie Aiche; and Veronica Beard (swing by the Melrose Place and Palisades Village locations); to name a few.
Other ways to shop? Cool basics label N:philanthropy is donating all proceeds from its Adios Tee ($88), Pink Peony Kids is donating 50% of sales from its special edition butterfly print face masks and clothing ($10 to $42), and Boxfox is giving 15% of sales from its New Family box. Local toy shops are also pitching in, including costume designer-founded Adventure Town Toys and Bellford Toys & Hobbies.
On the food and drink menu, stylish coffee shops and restaurants including Alfred Coffee, Delilah, DK's Donuts & Bakery, Go Get Em Tiger, Grand Central Market, Petite Taqueria, Porto's Bakery & Cafe, The Nice Guy, and Uncle Paulie's Deli are just a handful of tastebud-pleasing participants.
AK! Fitness is donating all proceeds from its March 6 morning workout with celebrity trainer and new The Talk host Amanda Kloots (book the 50-minute class for $25 online here), boxing-powered studio Gloveworx is donating a portion of sales from upcoming virtual training sessions (book here), and Training Mate is donating 15% of proceeds from personal training bookings ($150+ per hour) and 50% of sales of its L.A.-made Mate tees ($30).
