Men's Wearhouse has joined forces with ABC's "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" by donating tuxedos to help a couple who experienced tragedy realize their dream wedding.  Not only will this be the largest build that Ty Pennington and the Extreme Team have completed, building seven homes in seven days, but it will also be the final episode in a series that has run for nine seasons, culminating in its 200th episode.

From tuxedos to suits, Men's Wearhouse is known for its generous giving − most notably, The National Suit Drive. Through this annual drive, gently used business attire is collected and then distributed to disadvantaged men who are struggling to reenter the workforce. "Men's Wearhouse was founded in the belief that every man deserves a good suit, and through our philanthropic outreach, we are making it happen, one man at a time," Stogner said.

As part of their ongoing support of philanthropic programs, A|X Armani Exchange has partnered with dance4life and their current ambassador Supermodel / Actress Doutzen Kroes to design an exclusive dance4life t-shirt to benefit the dance4life Organization. 

Doutzen Kroes collaborated with Mr. Armani on this special A|X Armani Exchange 100% cotton unisex tee that features a black and white allover photo print of Doutzen Kroes with the words "Dance-Dance-Dance" printed in bold red across the body. Armani Exchange will launch this limited edition dance4life tee on December 1, 2011 (World AIDS Day) in all A|X stores and online at armaniexchange.com.

The dance4life t-shirt will retail for $35, with 100% of the profits ($25) from the sale of tee supporting dance4life education initiatives and their efforts to create programs that inspire, educate, and mobilize young people to lead the global dance4life movement to stop the spread of HIV and AIDS.

Today, leading outdoor lifestyle brand Timberland announced "Canvas that Cares," a new program created to raise funds for non-profit organizations through the auction of custom-designed, limited edition Earthkeepers® footwear – Timberland's most eco-minded collection.  Rock and roll icon and artist Ringo Starr is helping to drum up support for the initiative by lending his original peace sign artwork to the inaugural boot collection.  Proceeds from the auction, which kicks off December 1 on eBay (hub: www.timberland.com/canvasthatcares), will benefit WaterAid, a non-profit dedicated to improving access to safe water, sanitation and hygiene in the world's poorest communities.
