For some stars, fashion is all about philanthropy.


Founded by “Modern Family’s” Jesse Tyler Ferguson and his husband Justin Mikita in 2012, the company’s fashionable bow ties benefit various LGBT groups and those that support LGBT rights, including the American Civil Liberties Union. Josh Hutcherson, Lizzy Caplan and “Weird Al” Yankovic are among those who recently designed limited-edition bow ties for the brand. TIETHEKNOT.ORG

Melissa Joan Hart and husband Mark Wilkerson created an all-American boys clothing line inspired by their three active boys. Proceeds from select T-shirts benefit various children’s charities including Youth Villages, a private nonprofit for troubled children. KINGOFHARTS.COM


“House of Cards” star Robin Wright and designer Karen Fowler’s socially conscious sleepwear features delicate, vintage-inspired pieces — which led to a Calypso St. Barth capsule collection earlier this year. A portion of the brand’s proceeds benefit Action Kivu and Synergie des Femmes, two organizations that support female victims of violence in the Congo. PLFDREAMS.COM


As an extension of Ellen DeGeneres’ GAP x ED collaboration, the comedian created this pint-sized gender-neutral collection of shirts, pants, shoes and hats; $250,000 of its sales will be donated to Girls Inc., a nonprofit focused on self-esteem building. EDBYELLEN.COM
