Our take:

My husband and I have been fans of The Hard Rock for many years now. We have dined in the restaurants since we first met 18 years ago. Every city we visit, we make sure to  stop by a Hard Rock. We have even stayed in a few Hard Rock hotels, from tees to pins we have so many Hard Rock items. They are just so fun to collect. Now Hard Rock has some great items that are fun to collect but they are much more. We were very fortunate to be able to check out some great gift ideas from the new line of give back items from the Imagine, There’s no Hunger campaign.  With each purchase of any of these four items a percentage of the net revenue from 15% - 100% will go to WhyHunger.
 Men’s T-Shirt, this is a nice tee that would be appropriate for a man or a woman. The tee is emblazoned with the Imagine There’s No Hunger logo. This cotton tee is comfortable and would make a great gift. 15% of net proceeds will go to WhyHunger with the purchase of this tee.

The scarf is lovely, this could be dressed up with a nice black dress, or dressed down with a comfortable pair of jeans and it would look great either way. I love the colorful scarf, the colors blend well and will go with so many things. 15% of net proceeds from this scarf will go towards WhyHunger.

Pins we have a large collection of Hard Rock pins, that we have collected over the years. Sure those pins are cool, but this pin is special, a peace sign that makes you think that one day there may be peace through the world. Best part of this pin is that 100% of the net proceeds will go towards Why Hunger, you read that right 100%.

With these cool colorful bracelets this will also get 100% of the net income donated to WhyHunger. I love these bright colored bracelets, this would be great for the tween on your hiloday gift list. My daughter is 9 years old and she thought this was the coolest bracelet ever!

So if you are looking for a great gift that you can purchase for that special someone, and feel good about buying it. Not only will you feel good, because these are well made cool stylish items, you will be giving to those in need. Isn’t that what the season is all about. Sometimes with all the hectic, planning, shopping and preparing for the holidays we can forget that it is best to give rather than get. But with these great Hard Rock items you can give and give, and that is a wonderful thing.
