PACT HEART UNDIESOkay, we admit that these heart undies aren't made by local artisans, but they stand for such a great cause and are so V-Day worthy that we just had to include them. Each pair benefits the Citizen Effect, an initiative driven by the idea that anyone can make a real and significant impact in the world through community projects in Uganda, India, and America. + Starting at $20 from Pact
