Want to encourage positive change in the world? Make a difference by shopping smarter this holiday season.

Help bring an end to gun violence, stand with Ukrainian citizens, support women’s rights or encourage fair trade and sustainability by making purchases from companies that give back to organizations in desperate need of funds. When you build charitable giving into your holiday shopping, your dollars go a lot further.

You may be surprised to learn that many of the companies you know and love are already doing critical work for charities and nonprofits, or you may find some new favorite companies to buy from.

Wondering where to find this information? You can generally scroll to the bottom of any company’s website to find a link labeled “About Us” or “Our Story” or “Giving Back.” For example, Melissa & Doug’s website lists their give back programs under “Sustainability.”

There are many, many wonderful companies and products that donate a portion of their profits to essential charities. Here are some of our favorites…
