James Dondero believes in giving back to Dallas

James Dondero has years of experience meeting the financial needs of people in and around the Dallas area, but even though he could be considered a high-powered executive, he has not forgotten the people who helped him get where he is today. The Highlands Financial executive engages in a great deal of philanthropic work in the Dallas area.

Dondero believes in continuing education and in supporting military veterans who sacrificed their time and a few years of life in service to their country. The Snowball Express is not a train as its name might suggest. It supports veterans and their family when they return home.

The Highland Financial executive does more than just support military veterans. Over the years he has lived in Dallas, Dondero has contributed thousands of dollars to the Perot Museum and the Uplift Education organization. The Perot Musuem helps school-age children better understand science and helps steer young people toward careers in science, technology, engineering and math fields. Uplift helps the public education system produce individuals who are ready to go to college or enter the trades when the time comes.

His philanthropy also extends to helping vulnerable children in need. Capital for Kids is an organization of financial professionals who use their expertise to bring money to other organizations that provide relief to vulnerable children and their families. Not everything Dondero does is wholly educational, he believes kids and adults should have fun as well. He rounds out his charity work by contributing to the Dallas zoo.

Honey Birdette Opens Exclusive Online Store for US Customers, Physical Stores to Follow

One of the famous and the most successful lingerie brand, Honey Birdette, has launched an exclusive online store dedicated to its US shoppers. The brand that has more than 55 stores in Australia has been seeing a demand for its products internationally. With the increase in their online sales to more than 300%, the company has launched an exclusive website for its US shoppers.

The new Honey Birdette website is set to offer a broad range of lingerie options to the buyers. With a user-friendly internet site, the shoppers can also enjoy faster delivery time, low delivery charges and easy returns on the purchase products. The company also secured investment from one of the private companies, BBRC.  The online website will also have an exclusive collection of its wide range of lingerie for US shoppers. The company has ensured that its customers have access to their collection the same time as their Australian counterparts.

Honey Birdette had recently launched the online platform for its UK customer base. It also opened about ten stores in the UK, including the ones at Leeds’ Victoria Gate, Westfield White City, and London’s Convent Garden. It also plans to open more stores in the UK by the end of 2017. Likewise, the company aims to provide the best customer service through its online portal and aims to open similar stores in the US as they did in the UK. With physical stores in the UK, the company seeks to provide their customers with a chance to try out their lingerie and pick the ones that they like best.      

While Honey Birdette has planned to launch their physical stores in the US as well, they have still not narrowed down the cities they would be opening their stores. The company is expected to make an announcement in the coming months.
