Round Out Your Weekend Shopping With Gifts That Give Back for Giving Tuesday
The Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals are dwindling down (savings accounts, rejoice!), but before you polish off another year of holiday shopping, there’s one more sales event that’s way worth your attention: Giving Tuesday.
In the fury of consumerism that is Black Friday weekend, Giving Tuesday focuses on giving back to the community in whatever ways you can. But it’s not just for consumers—brands are welcome to get in on the giving, too, donating profits, products, and more back to organizations and non-profits who need it most. From local community resources to larger global initiatives, Giving Tuesday is a chance for corporations to give back before the holidays, reminding us that presents aren’t the main reason for the season.
If you’re looking for a way to support a cause this year—or need to finish the Black Friday shopping you didn’t get around to, give a gift that gives back. Below are 12 beauty, fashion, and home brands giving back for Giving Tuesday to support this year.
