Jonathan Adler says: We Heart Peru!

Living in LA, we have often heard (or read) stories about how our celebrities are rude to their fans. And we get it: they are celebrities, they are followed by paparazzi, and being rude to their fans is something that we find to be dumb (don't bite the hand that feeds you, Avril!) So it's heartwarming to find that our own 'celebrities' in the design world aren't as bad as, say, the movie starlets or musician types. Case and point: Jonathan Adler will be donating 10% of all the proceeds from his stores to the Peruvian earthquake relief.

Adler put up a statement on his site recognizing his reliance on the "magic and skill of Peruvian craftsmen," and while acknowleding that some damage hit his own workshops, the greater damage affected other areas of Peru. And while Jonathan Adler's wares might be out of your price range, you can always donate to charities that are providing relief to Peru, such as Care.org and The American Red Cross.
