I might not know you personally, but something tells me you love to shop!
Then again, who doesn’t? To some, buying things can even be therapeutic. Although it might feel good to go home with a bag full of goodies, nothing is better than helping those who really need it! And now you can kill those two birds with one stone! (That was just a metaphor, please don’t actually kill any birds.)
Okay so we all know the current state of the union has been all weird and taboo-like lately, which has made things a bit bleak and, well, TOUGH. All we have right now is each other, but for now that is plenty! Women have had it with all this inequality BS, and I know we won’t stop until we see real change.
I’m just happy to point out this one true thing: SO MANY women have come together to help push our society in a forward direction. Even notable companies and brands are catching on!
Certain beauty brands have decided to donate a portion of their profits to select charities. Whether you want to support Planned Parenthood (and you very well should), the ACLU, CAIR or another important cause, there’s a beauty product out there that agrees with you.
You can finally feel good about your sporadic shopping sprees, because a portion of that hard-earned money is indeed helping our world become a better place. Trust me, we need all the help we can get right now.
Here are some awesome beauty brands that are gladly donating to charitable causes.
A portion of A Complete’s proceeds benefits the Angelica Fuentes Foundation, which encourages women empowerment and gender equality in the workforce.
Coconut Body Butter
Whenever you buy this body butter, Earth Tu Face will donate 5% of all online sales to Planned Parenthood for the next FOUR YEARS. No, that was not a typo. Yes, I said FOUR YEARS.
Ladies, we all need concealer in our lives. So why not go with the most honest choice possible? … Sorry, I had to. Don’t let my terrible pun steer you away from this buy! Every purchase of Honest Beauty’s Concealer Duo benefits Girls Who Code and Code.org. These two organizations provide more opportunities for women that want to get into the very much male-dominated computer science industry.
ALL proceeds from Cut + Sew’s Valentine’s Day capsule “Heart On” t-shirts will be donated to Halle Berry’s charity project “What A Little Love Can Do.”
The Action Tees: Reformation is a company built by women and immigrants dedicated to protecting the environment. So we've made a collection of 5 t-shirts to stand up for our beliefs. For each tee purchased, we will donate $30 to the ACLU, Planned Parenthood or EDF. Pick your t-shirt, pick your action. #jointhereformation
This brand created a special line of “Action Tees” that will benefit Planned Parenthood, the ACLU, and EDF. With every t-shirt purchase, $30 will go to one of the three charities of your choosing.
As a play on the new symbol of solidarity, Hardt Jewelry created this clever safety pin necklace. Ten percent of its sales will be used to help the American Refugee Committee.
This brand is donating 10% of its total sales to charities supported by Girls Not Brides, which works to prevent child marriages around the world. A good face scrub and helping young girls sounds like a win win situation.
MAKE Beauty is donating 10% of its Skin Illuminator’s (a creamy, click-brush highlighter) profits to the We See Beauty Foundation, an all-female-led business that funds female entrepreneurs.
This cosmetics company was founded by a former MUA who lost her best friend to cancer. Her mission ever since was to empower women. For every product you purchase, Thrive Causemetics donates a beauty product to a woman undergoing cancer treatment.
