With all proceeds from the sale of this T-shirt going to organizations supported by Design for Progress (Planned Parenthood, Everytown for Gun Safety, the ACLU, the Southern Poverty Law Center, Human Rights Campaign, EarthJustice, and the National Immigration Law Center), you can feel good about sporting this garb. Made from soft gauge cotton modal jersey, it’s got a worn-in and vintage look and feel, and the message is simple: Resist, Persist, Insist.
Half the reason to buy this “Self Love” choker by Prrrl is because they are donating all 100% of proceeds to Brooklyn’s HEAT Program (Health and Education Alternatives for Teens) for the month of March. The service offers developmentally and culturally appropriate care for young people of all genders and sexualities who are at risk of HIV/AIDS. The other half, of course, is the sterling silver (with rhodium charms) necklace itself, which should serve as a reminder to be kind and respectful to yourself.
Perhaps the strongest message to come after the 2016 election, January’s Inauguration Day and all the moves made by the US Government since, has been resist—and persist. Otherwild has taken note, and now their bright red “Sister Resister” T-shirt is available for pre-order. The best part is that 25% of proceeds from these 100% cotton, made-in-the-USA, unisex tops will go to the ACLU.
Available in either solid sterling silver or 14K gold fill, this simple but sweet boobie necklace from Melopepo isn’t just an accessory—20% of profits go to the ACLU and Planned Parenthood, so your purchase helps support people all over the country. This simple shape is also used in Melopepo’s earrings and rings and, thanks to them being handmade, each one is slightly different—just like the real thing.
While it’s useful and very cute, there’s a lot more to this rainbow-colored, heart-printed tote. Funds from the sale of this bag go to the ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union) whose work has always been important, but perhaps is now more so than ever. Show your favorite people you care about them—and about the rights of others—with this canvas tote. (Of course, we also recommend setting up a monthly donation to the ACLU if you’re in a position to do so.)
1973 was the year in which the Supreme Court case Roe vs Wade culminated in abortion being deemed a fundamental right under the United States Constitution. In a majority vote, laws were changed and, in turn, so were lives across the country. Of course we encourage readers to donate money to their preferred charities and organizations, but if you want to wear your heart on your sleeve—or chest—30% of profits from the sale of this unisex T-shirt go to the National Institute for Reproductive Health.
Those of us who were following along with the rogue social media managers from several national parks this week might be looking for ways to support them. One easy option is buying this deck of playing cards, as 100% of the proceeds go to the National Park Foundation. Each card is illustrated by one of 40 artists from all over the world and has a wholesome, retro vibe.
More than a regular bag to tote your goods around (though it will do that), this bag from Power & Light Press donates all proceeds to Planned Parenthood. Listing all the services that PP offers—perhaps for those who believe it exists purely to provide abortions—the bag is simply printed with various essentials like pap smears, counseling and more.
Requiring no battery, this SmileSolar mini watch is powered by the sun and operates for more than three months after a full charge. Available in countless colorways, this watch is more than a functional accessory—Q&Q donates a portion of profits to Table For Two, which is an organization that delivers school meals to children in need in Africa and Asia.
Not only a beautifully scented candle housed in a sophisticated holder, Starling’s products directly benefit developing communities. Founded just last year, the company has already raised $100k and donated it to organizations including UNICEF in order to provide solar energy for people in Chad. The candles are hand-poured in Brooklyn, but their reach is much further.
Penh Lenh—an organization that empowers marginalized and at-risk women in Cambodia through education and vocational training—handcrafts oftentimes dainty but statement-making beaded jewelry. For something a little different than the rest of their collection, these tassel earrings (made from gold-plated hardware and black agate) are a little festive and 100% of the profits are invested back into the organization.
Made form buttery leather this cinch backpack is more than one bag—it’s reversible. Depending on your look for the day, it can be worn on either the black or mauve side. Better yet, it’s part of State’s #GiveBackPack program, which means for every bag sold, the ream at State hand-delivers another backpack full of pencils, notebooks, socks—you name it—to an American child in need.
J. Hannah’s minimal, sophisticated Demi signet ring is available in 14k gold or sterling silver—and it’s a covetable piece of jewelry, being solid and not hollowed in the back. The 5mm x 5mm face can be engraved with any letter chosen, or left blank. Also, 10% of profits is donated to Design for Progress—an organization that supports and protects groups and issues in need of post-election help.
Straight (or perhaps, directly) to the point, this unisex top is a collaboration between Otherwild and Herstory and is inspired by a tank worn by a participant in Gay Pride Day, NYC back in 1982. The rest of the collection includes a sweet Gay Power denim cap and Dyke enamel pins. Additionally, 10% of all proceeds are donated to the Lesbian Herstory Archives.
From one of our favorite NYC brands, 100% fair-trade accessories maker Slow Factory, the “We Are Home” collection uses NASA satellite images to create beautifully patterned silk scarves. From cloud vortices near the South Pacific’s Heard Island to the Outer Aleutian Islands to dusty deserts, the scarves are fascinating and pretty. Plus, money from the scarf and tie sales support an education initiative, which benefits Syrian refugees thanks to American Near East Refugee Aid (aka ANERA) and UNICEF. Slow Factory’s founder, Celine Semaan Vernon, is a refugee herself, so the initiative is especially close to her heart—therefore donating $10 from each sale was a no-brainer.
A joint venture between Kiehl’s and Brooklyn-based art collective FAILE (aka Patrick McNeil and Patrick Miller), this collection of luxe skincare products sees 100% of net profits going toward non-profit Feeding America. The set includes Daily Reviving Concentrate, limited edition Ultra Facial Cream, limited edition Creme de Corps, and a limited edition FAILE sticker; the total value of each set sold translates to 415 meals for those in need through the charity. Yes, it’s a beautifully designed kit of lavish items, but the charitable element remains undeniably important.
