OUR SOCIAL ENGAGEMENT

For over 30 years, we have addressed what people STAND IN and what they STAND FOR.

In the 80s, we advocated on behalf of AIDS Research (when others wouldn’t) and Kenneth currently serves as chairman of amfAR.

In the 90s, we initiated the first “Shoe Drive” in support of homeless populations (when others hadn’t) and have since collected and donated over 2 million pairs of shoes. 

After the Haiti earthquake, we raised funds to build The Kenneth Cole Haiti Health Center (when others couldn’t) which is accessible to a community of over 1.5 million people.

Today, in partnership with THE KENNETH COLE FOUNDATION we:

open minds through education and awareness.

collaborate with organizations committed to supporting communities in need.

promote the culture of volunteering by mobilizing individuals to take action.

invest in social entrepreneurship and community builders

remain committed to helping anyone, anywhere LOOK GOOD, FOR GOOD.
