DKNY 20th Birthday Chari.tee for Operation Smile

To mark the 20th birthday of DKNY, Donna Karan wanted to give something back and has teamed up with Operation Smile to produce a stylish new T-shirt.

11-1.jpgChari-Tee is a charitable program between DKNY and those who love and wear it. So when you buy a DKNY Chari-Tee, a portion of the proceeds benefit Operation Smile.

The idea for having a bunch of celebrities design some T-shirts for charity began in New York where DKNY donated profits from their Chari-Tee sales to five causes. The designated charities were all New York based, with the idea being that the NY label was repaying the inspiration that New York gives to DKNY. Now to celebrate their 20th birthday DKNY have launched the international version, with proceeds going to Operation Smile.

As Donna Karan said 'the best philanthropy has style. Chari-Tee is one of my favourites, because you get to wear your heart on your sleeve".

Well no one can deny that these t-shirts have style, and if you're donating to charity at the same time then there's no excuse not to buy one!

The funky black and white tees, pictured above were available from the DKNY boutique on Old Bond St and in Harrods.
