Limited to an edition of 100, this “Abolish ICE” print by Ben Sanders doesn’t just look good, but all profits are being donated to RAICES—an organization that free and low-cost legal assistance to those facing detention at the US border.

Even just a rainbow trim speaks volumes. Such is the case on 2(X)IST’s Pride Jogger Colorblock Swim Short—all-white poly-microtwill with a colorful, celebratory accent. As for function, there’s a quick-dry mesh interior and deep side pockets, too. It’s the style that truly impresses, with retro dolphin splits at the side hem and a no-show rise. The brand is also making a donation to The Trevor Project.
The fact that no two handles are exactly alike—thanks to a truly unique, celebratory and mystifying iridescent finish—is only a sliver of the allure emanating from the razor in Harry’s new Shave With Pride set. The handles are a clever take on the rainbow association, of course, but it’s really the fact that 100% of all profits get donated to LGBTQ charities including GLAAD, APLA Health, Self Evident Truths Project, True Colors Fund and more. And again, usefulness remains at the forefront, with three German-engineered blade cartridges and a foaming shave shave (though, cream is an alternative) also in the kit.
This all-genders, four-color printed T-shirt boasts a delightful take on the ’80s English pop band Tears for Fears.

Best of all, Revel and Riot is an LGBTQ non-profit organization that also donates proceeds to other significant organizations all year—not just during Pride Month.
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.

The best part is that 25% of proceeds from these 100% cotton, made-in-the-USA, unisex tops will go to the ACLU.
The act of resistance is still relevant and essential, and a friendly reminder comes in necklace form thanks to Eriness. The block-letter nameplate-style piece comes in sterling silver, 14k gold or 14k gold with diamond letters. Most importantly, 20% of all proceeds will be donated to Planned Parenthood.
Made from 100% cashmere, and hand-stitched in NYC, Lingua Franca’s solid black sweater makes its message clear in contrasting white lettering: Believe Survivors.

More than hand-poured soy enriched with tropical fruit scents, the Silver Lake Candle from Raven + Lily is produced by women who have transitioned out of homelessness in the Los Angeles area. A lush mango and grapefruit profile arises from the eight-ounce nature-inspired object. Just as soothing, however, is the idea of empowering women who need more employment opportunities.

A traditional five-panel cap, this one is a little extra retro thanks to its curly lettering and rope detail.

Amarula’s cream liqueur is made from fermented marula fruit—which only grows in sub-Saharan Africa—so the poaching crisis decimating the African elephant population hits close to home. In a new campaign to raise awareness, from now to the end of 2017, the company will donate $1 for every bottle sold in the US to conservation non-profit WildlifeDIRECT.
