Even if you weren't a fan of the former president, himself, the internet seemed to continuously fangirl over Barack Obama and VP Joe Biden's bromance and the day-making memes that came along with it. And while we love all the positivity the duo brought to the White House, it turns out that Biden's daughter Ashley continues to follow in the philanthropic attitudes of her dad.
Ashley Biden has officially launched an American-made clothing brand called Livelihood that donates proceeds to American communities in need, and how inpsiring is that?
Take a sneak peak at the Gilt x @Livelihood2017 Collection launching tomorrow, Feb. 8th. With each hoodie purchase, two communities (starting with Wilmington, DE – Aubrey Plaza & Ashley Biden’s hometown – and Anacostia, D.C.) will receive funding for programs like education initiatives, vocational training, and job placement services. All in a day’s work at @Livelihood2017. #GetInvolvedInYourHood #LinkInBio to shop for a good cause
As a social worker in Delaware, Ashley Biden had a front-row seat to the lack of resources in communities, so she partnered with the e-commerce site Gilt to create an interactive website that will feature not only the apparel but will discuss policy reforms and the importance of getting involved in these kinds of efforts on a local level.
"Livelidhood is about celebrating the resiliency in under-served communities (the artists, the entrepreneurs, and the innovators,) supporting them as they work to advance social and economic justice," she stated on Livelihood's website.
At the Livelihood launch in NYC last week, Joe Biden made his first public appearance as former VP and gave a heartfelt statement regarding his daughter's efforts.
"My daughter Ashley's commitment to public service, her commitment to trying to change the world for the better, is more intense than even mine has been," he said.
Tonight we celebrated the launch of Gilt x @Livelihood2017 with Founder Ashley Biden, @VP44, and Gilt + Saks OFF 5TH President Jonathan Greller 🎉👏. Fashion, conscious: Our exclusive hoodie collection benefits this innovative organization dedicated to revitalizing neighborhoods in need. #GetInvolvedInYourHood
Actress and friend of Ashley Biden Aubrey Plaza is joining alongside the cause, too.
"Ashley and I both talked about our love for Wilmington and for Delaware," Plaza stated on their website. "I told her how some of the community programs in Wilmington influenced me as a child and helped me get to where I am today."
The 100 percent American-made apparel includes men's, women's, and kid's hoodies ranging from $79 to $99.
