It's the season of gratitude...but it's also the season of giving! And after all that Black Friday and Cyber Monday madness, it's time to put your wallet to work for a cause greater than populating your closet (or getting your gift list in check).
Giving Tuesday is the perfect opportunity to give a little back with every dollar you spend. Some companies take a percentage of their sales for the day and donate them to a good cause, others give a portion of your purchase to a non-profit that does a lot of good, and there's even a few retailers who will donate to the charity of your choice when you drop some cash in their coffers! Think of it as a charitable donation where everyone wins a little something extra at the end.
We've curated a list of some of the better Giving Tuesday spots to shop, along with some suggestions of what to get. And don't feel guilty about participating in a fifth straight day of shopping! Remember: it's for a good cause.
Pick up a planner from BestSelf to help you prep for the New Year, and they'll donate a meal through Feeding America, a non-profit that feeds over 46 million people via shelters, food pantries, soup kitchens and more. Our fave? The Self Planner, a six-month life planner that's undated, so you can start anytime—and it's printed on recycled paper.
Boolean Girl Tech
Support girls in STEM with the purchase of a Boolean Box! 10% of the proceeds from this build-it-yourself computer engineering kit from Boolean Girl Tech supports Boolean Girl, a non-profit dedicated to teaching girls how to code.
Get cozy for the season with Ivory Ella—and do some good in the process. This Giving Tuesday (and for the next 48 hours), if you make a donation of $10 to Save The Elephants on ivoryella.com, you'll receive 25% off sitewide PLUS a limited edition SAVE THE ELEPHANTS tote ($22 value). Plus, they'll match all donations made up to $10,000! It's a great way to help this amazing organization secure a future for elephants. We're going to get the Dark Grey Sherpa Cardigan.
Minted is a treasure trove of unique gifting ideas, thanks to its partnerships with independent artists. On Giving Tuesday, they're partnering with Christy Turlington Burns' organization Every Mother Counts, which is focused on making pregnancy and childbirth safe for every mother in the US and around the world. Shop the Every Mother Counts collection, and your purchase will benefit the organization. Imagine this stunning print, Mother Embrace by Kate Ahn, hanging on your wall.
Cover your peepers in style with Privé Revaux this Giving Tuesday, and you'll be benefiting RestoringVision, a non-profit global health organization that distributes glasses to people in need. for For every pair of Privé Revaux sunglasses, anti-blue light glasses, reading glasses or holiday gift card sold, a pair will be donated to one of the 2.5 billion people worldwide that suffer from uncorrected vision impairment. We're pretty sure you can't go wrong with something like The Hepburn.
This Giving Tuesday, Michael Stars is partnering with Step Up, a non-profit that offers mentorship programs for high school girls to become confident, college-bound and career focused. Buy one of their classic tees—like the classic Shine Deep Scoop Neck Tee—and they'll give 25% of the proceeds to Step Up, up to $10,000. (Plus, you can still get 25% off sitewide with the code TGIM25.)
K-DEER always supports worthy causes throughout the year with their collection of Signature Stripes leggings, but for Giving Tuesday, they're helping you save 20% on the Dana, Erika and Candice stripes with the code GIVING19, and donating 5% of the proceeds to three different charities. Proceeds from Erika sales go to St. Hubert's Animal Welfare, proceeds from Candice go to Support Kindness Matters 365, and proceeds from Dana—our favorite—go to The Hetrick-Martin Institute.
ban.do is spending their Giving Tuesday giving 10% of all their sales to Girls Inc., a non-profit that helps girls grow up healthy, educated and independent. We're all about this cute graphic tee, which proclaims "I'm Doing Whatever I Want Now." And you can still get it for 30% off with the code THIRTYOFF.
Did you know? Alo Yoga has their own organization—called Alo Gives—that aims to bring yoga to kids! For Giving Tuesday, a portion of all sales will go toward supporting that mission through 2020. And with deals up to 70% off for one last day, you can get some great stuff—like this Gaze Layered Bra.
Girlfriend Collective is already awesome—they make all their to-die-for leggings and sports bras out of recycled plastic. And now they're going the extra mile for Giving Tuesday, donating 20% of net proceeds to Direct Relief, a humanitarian aid organization that provides assistance to people affected by poverty or emergencies like the fires across California. And if you're a member of their reward program, The Collective, they'll give you double points. We love the Compressive High-Rise Legging in Olympia, a blend between turquoise and azure… but you can get this legging in almost every color of the rainbow.
