Clearly, Chicago is trying to send a message. Lately the weather has been stuck on rainy and cold. It is blazer weather, cardigan weather, and yes – boot weather. I’m on the hunt for the perfect pair of fall boots, and I’m betting you are too. My watchwords are comfort and style — and Naturalizer shoes fit the bill to perfection!

And now thanks to the new charitable campaign called Friends of Naturalizer, you can win a pair of Naturalizer shoes right here on Afrobella, you can save 30% off shoes you decide to buy from from September 29 to October 2, AND help women in need!

Print this and take it to the store with you!

Naturalizer is teaming up with Dress for Success, an organization that helps disadvantaged women attain jobs and realize their full potential by providing suits and the support they need to kick-start their career.

From September 29 to October 2, Naturalizer will donate $1 from every shoe or handbag sale – up to $20,000 – to one of three Dress for Success programs – and you can help decide how the money will be used by voting for the program that inspires you the most!!

All you need to do is visit the official Naturalizer voting page to vote for your program of choice. Then leave a comment here telling me which program you chose. And know if you buy any item between September 29 to October 2, you’re helping to support a truly wonderful and necessary charity initiative!

The winner of the giveaway will receive a gift code to use on to select the pair of shoes that they would like to receive. This code will cover the cost of the shoes, tax and shipping so that there is no cost to the winner and no credit card information is required. Naya, a specialty brand of Naturalizer, is excluded. Giveaway winners must be U.S.-based.

This giveaway will close by Monday October 3. Good luck, bellas!

I voted for the suiting program. Just from personal experience, I know how hard a good suit is to find and how hard looking the part can be. I think that would be so helpful to women

I voted for the Suiting Program because no matter how qualified you are for a position, you may not be considered if you don't "dress the part".

I voted for the suiting program because I think lack of proper clothing can impede woman from that very first step (job interview). Great cause.

I voted for the Professional Women's Group. It's easier to acquire a suit- especially with the help of Dress for Success- than to be empowered with skills that will help a woman land that great job.

I voted for the Professional Women's Group. I used to volunteer with DFS, and having facilitated a PWG, I know first hand how important the fellowship is to the woman that use the services even after employment is found. The opportunity to connect with woman who experience their realities, and talk about issues without judgement is invaluable.

I voted for the Suiting for Success! You never get a 2nd chance to make a 1st impression and your 1st impression is always how you look! Got to have to power suit if you want to snag that j.o.b.!

I voted for the Suiting Program because it helps women like a relative of mine, get back on their feet. The program helped my relative get a job after three years of unemployment. sorry if this has posted before.

I voted for the Suiting Program. When I worked at a homeless shelter for women with newborns and other small children, the number one deterrent for job search was not having the proper attire that would help them make a lasting and positive first impression.

I voted for the Suiting Project, because the inability to dress appropriately for an interview is an all-too-often overlooked barrier to employment for many underprivileged populations. This is such a great cause!

I voted for the Suiting Program. While the PWG and Success Summit are important for mentoring and continuing professional development, it makes a difference to have a wardrobe for work when you are entering/re-entering the workforce.

Though I think all of the programs have a great purpose, I voted for the Suiting Program because of its eye-catching proposal. It was very relatable and should be a success! I hope it is because the deadly cycle of unemployment is a big issue nowadays!

Thank you for bringing attention to this very worthy cause. I voted for the suiting program. This program gives women a shot they ordinarily wouldn't have simply because of their appearance & I love that they equip them for continued success by providing a week's worth of clothing. Awesome!
