Toms shoe donation and Giving Fund
Toms is the original "one-for-one" company, having given away more than 100 million pairs of shoes to people in need. Since the company started, when you buy a pair of Toms, they'd donate a pair of shoes to someone in need.
Today, Toms is taking it a step further. They are committed to dedicating one third of their net annual profit to a Giving Fund that they managed in-house. This money not only funds shoe donations, it also supports causes and organizations all over the world.
(Psst! Toms is also a certified B Corp, just like Leesa.)
Bombas donates a pair of socks for every pair sold
Like Leesa, Bombas was founded on the idea that business can be used for good. As a fellow B Corp, (sensing a pattern yet?), Bombas donates one pair of socks for every item they sell. So, when you gift a pair of Bombas socks, you're also giving a pair to someone in need.
But socks are such a boring gift. Bombas aren't just your average socks. Their socks are comfortable and come in different colors and materials, so you can find the right socks for every person on your list. (And they're the perfect size for a stocking stuffer!)
The Giving Key employs people transitioning out of homelessness
The Giving Key sells beautiful handmade jewelry and accessories. Their products not only make great gifts, but the company employs individuals who are transitioning out of homelessness. The company offers full-time jobs, employees benefits, paid time-off (which they can use for housing, education and case management appointments) and provides an encouraging environment full of support and care.
Plus, most Giving Keys products are stamped or marked with a word of your choosing, like "love" or "strength." The receiver can wear the item until they feel someone else could use the word more and then pass it on. So really, these gifts can give three times or more!
Every State Bag purchase helps support families in need
State Bags make awesome gifts, with everything from backpacks to purses. Not only will your friend or family member love their bag, but State Bag donates a portion of the proceeds from every purchase to help families and children in need. They also donate fully-packed backpacks at rallies through charities and schools across the country.
Guess what? State bags is also a certified B Corp.
Love Your Melon donates hats to pediatric cancer patients
Love Your Melon sells everything from beanies to ball caps to other apparel like sweatshirts and t-shirts. They were founded with the mission of providing a warm, comfy hat for every child battling cancer in the US. To date, they've given over 6.2 million dollars to fight pediatric cancer and donated more than 180,000 hats to pediatric cancer patients.
Their products make great gifts and they donate half of all of their net profits.
Lush donates 100% of the proceeds from lotion
Everyone on your list will love Lush's Charity Pot lotion. Not to mention, it's sourced from their Sustainable Lush Fund projects (which support regenerative agriculture all over the world). And Lush donates all of the proceeds from Charity Pot to organizations working for human rights, animal protection and environmental justice.
These are only a few example out of hundreds of companies that are using business as a force for good. So, this year, consider a gift that gives twice when you're doing your holiday shopping.
