If my posts slow down over the next week, it’s because my time is sure to be stretched as I will be on Fashion Week duty, covering a bunch of the shows, events, and parties. Nonetheless, tonight is the Third Annual Fashion’s Night Out, the consumer-crazed kick off for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York City, where retailers will welcomingly open their doors with the promise of free champagne, manicures, celebrity sightings and half-off galore.

And as much as Fashion’s Night Out was designed to revive the fashion industry after the recession, the night is also committed to supporting HIV and AIDS treatment with the NYC AIDS Fund. That means that 40% of the proceeds from Fashion’s Night Out t-shirts, caps, and totes will support the AIDS Fund. You can find a list of e-tailers and stores selling the collection here.

And if you’re looking to put your shopping dollars directly towards a cause, visit some of the retailers below, who are also contributing a portion of their sales to charity. While some people simply can’t stand the idea of using charity to drive purchases…FNO is a good way for some to save on last minute wardrobe staples and give back. Happy shopping!
