Let’s be real.
At some point we are all going to spend money to buy things that make us look good. Why not spend this money with socially responsible brands that also make us feel good? I am all about doing both. As such, I took a moment to pull together brands who embody this sentiment by giving to charity .
Check out a few faves perfect for all the Philanthropic Young Thangs (PYTs) who practice looking good from the inside out.
We all know MAC as a leader in cosmetics but did you know that MAC contributes 100% of the profit from Viva Glam products toward helping those affected by HIV/AIDs?
That gives us two reasons to make the Viva Glam Collection apart of our makeup arsenal:
- We know we are getting a quality brand guaranteed to deliver rich color that helps us stand out.
- we are making a difference in the lives of men, women, and children affected by AIDs simply by treating ourselves to something that makes us feel pretty.
It is always a good day to look flawless for a cause.
There are tons of ways to let our fashion reflect our compassion for humanity through charity. If you’re intentional, you’ll find there are lots of ways we can reflect good style which benefits a cause.
For instance, I LOVE the Motherlover Shirt by Alliance of Moms. The purchase of this Tee benefits teen moms in the foster care system by creating programs which allows these young mothers to provide their children with a healthier childhood.
Another must- have is the Phenomenal Woman Tee. During the recent passing of #BlackWomensEqualPay day on July 31st, women from all different walks of life took to social media in rock this t-shirt in ways reflective of their own style.
This T-shirt is apart of an action campaign which seeks to support women’s rights by donating proceeds from the shirt to non-profit partners such as Essie Justice Group, Girls who Code and NARAL.
When pay day rolls around, I am definitely going to be on a mission to purchase my T-shirt in support of the cause.
Yes To carries cool skin products that support a cool cause.
You can say yes to facial wipes, scrubs, shower gels and masks all in one spot. But more than that, you can also say yes to giving back to women and children on an international level.
Everything about that sounds like a win to me!
Not only does Lush help us indulge in baths that are the bomb, it allows us to give back through our purchase of charity pots. This pots contain moisturizing lotion which leave skin feeling silky smooth.
100% of proceeds collected from the Charity Pot go to various grassroots organizations which make the communities around them a better place. Even beyond the Charity Pot, Lush offers cruelty free products that won’t leave you feeling guilty about buying up the store.
Smelling good never felt so right!
With yummy scents that go toward an honorable cause, the only question here is, “why not?”
Each purchase of Givescent supports female survivors of war through an organization known as Women for Women International. This organization provides direct aid, rights education, job skills training and small business development.
For those of us who are all about women empowerment, this brand is for you!
I’m not sure about you but, I rarely leave home without mascara or eyelashes.
Thrive Causemetics creates that plus more for your beauty needs.
Even better than that, Thrive deliver products and services to women going through cancer treatment. Every time you purchase a product from Thrive, it donates one to a woman fighting through cancer.
We all know that when we look good, we feel good. Purchasing Thrive products is just one way we can help cancer patients feel better about themselves as they continue the good fight.
Each one, Help One
Helping others can be done in many ways. I think this is a great place to start. Let me know what brands do you support which give back. I’d also love to hear ways you are being socially responsible in your community through charitable acts. Comment below.
