Shop These Sites to Benefit Human Rights Organizations
Without question, this has been a week that's left many feeling scared, sad, and hopeless to say the least. Leading up to the election, some businesses, media members, and celebrities crossed their usual personal boundaries to endorse a candidate they hoped would keep laws created to protect women, immigrants, and the LGBT community (among others) intact. In the wake of election results that could prove to threaten these communities, some such businesses have pushed aside their mourning in favor of action, offering to donate a portion of their profits to causes backed by Hillary Rodham Clinton in the hopes of keeping these organizations and their efforts alive. Below find a few shops where the money you spend will help benefit non-profits like Planned Parenthood and the Human Rights Campaign.
The online vintage retailer, which specializes in perfectly worn Levi's, overalls, and other casual essentials that Jane Birkin would approve of, is currently giving 10% of sales through the weekend (ending Sunday, November 13th) to Planned Parenthood. Shop owner Toni Walker also tells us through the holidays, she'll be donating to even more charities, which will be announced via Fair Season's Instagram feed.
The Echo Park retailer, which also offers e-commerce, prides itself on promoting independent female designers (including Samantha Pleet and Rachel Antonoff) and now when you purchase goods like this "Equal Pay Now" sweatshirt, shop owner Whitney Bickers will be donating 10% of every sale to Planned Parenthood and the American Civil Liberties Union.
When Mixed Business heads to San Francisco this weekend for West Coast Craft Fair, 10% of purchases from the retailer — including curated vintage and contemporary womenswear and accessories — will benefit the Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles.
Through the week, when you shop this site's jewelry, beauty products, tees, totes, and other cosmic goods, a percentage will be donated to Planned Parenthood, the Southern Poverty Law Center, and Refugees International. Shop owner Sherise Lee also notes that The Radder will continue donating to different causes after this week, so stay tuned to see which other organizations your spending could benefit.
