Has anyone noticed that the amount of book titles with the word “girl” in it has shot up exponentially? I thought it was only me, but then an article was published about it!

Not only are Joe Biden and his wife Jill pretty awesome, but they’ve raised an amazing daughter. Ashley Biden is launching a clothing brand, Livelihood, that will be made in the USA and the proceeds of which will be donated to under-served American communities.
The first two communities will be Anacostia, DC (where Ashley’s first social worker job was) and Wilmington, Delaware (where she was born). The community boards will then get to decide how the proceeds will be spent and which initiatives need them the most.
Ashley is taking it a step even further than that though. Livelihood will also have an interactive website where users will learn about ways used to reduce poverty around the country.
If you want to check out the apparel, it’s currently available on Gilt!
