Selfless Snaps: Lauren Conrad’s Doggies Are The Cutest

Lauren Conrad 2013 XO(eco) By BlueAvocado Launch Event
Seems this week is all about doggies for Lauren Conrad! Earlier this week she posted about adopting a new puppy, and yesterday she shared an adorbs image of her dog Fitz posing in a basket from The Little Market.

LC wrote on Instagram, “Little Fitz loves our new handmade market basket from Ghana just as much as we do! @thelittlemarket #thelittlemarket”.

Last fall Lauren launched The Little Market. Its merchandise is made by women in developing countries, and the whole idea of it is to help these women become autonomous and earn their way out of poverty. LC has said she’s very passionate about this project, and it’s a great way to empower women.

So Lauren kinda gave us an extra pro-social story. We have the women’s empowerment angle through The Little Market, and also the animal welfare angle from her beyond cute dog. And remember how I mentioned Lauren just adopted a new puppy? Take a look at this:

“Newest member of the Conrad clan stole me heart,” Lauren wrote about the puppy.

If you want to help women in developing countries earn their own money through their hard work and creativity, check out The Little Market. (Psst, Mother’s Day is coming up. Just sayin’.) And if you want to help cute dogs like Lauren’s, you can always help animal rights orgs or your local shelter. If you’re in a situation where you can get a dog, adoption is the way to do it. And who can resist those eyes?
