Stores That Give Back For Ramadan
Ramadan is a month of fasting and prayer as well as a time to show compassion for the less fortunate and make charitable contributions. Donating directly to charities is one way to give back, another is shop for Eid gifts from stores that give to charity when you make a purchase.
Not sure which stores give back? MyUS has you covered! We've rounded up a great list of companies that give back when you purchase from them, and when you shop them with MyUS, you'll pay no US sales tax!
TOMS was one of the first major companies to jump on board with the "One for One" model of making a donation with every purchase and has donated over 60 million pairs of shoes to children in need. In 2011, they branched out into eyewear and now provide prescription glasses, medical treatment, and sometimes sight-saving surgery in 13 countries. They have shoes for men, women, and kids, as well as sunglasses, t-shirts, and baseball caps. And if you're looking for a great pair of dressy sandals for the summer, you can't go wrong with their new Women's Ibiza Sandals in Black or Honey Suede. They feature a 3 ½-inch platform heel, OrthoLite insoles for extra comfort, and an adjustable ankle strap with a custom buckle for a secure fit.
With mostly scrap-wood for the strap and body and advanced Miyota technology for inner-workings, WeWood has brought ecological sustainability to the modern watch. Their watches are non-toxic, extremely lightweight, and to give back, WeWood plants a tree with every purchase. For a stunning gift, anyone on your Eid gift list would love, check out their limited edition Aurora watch with a slim 36 mm diameter stainless steel case and signature Flex-Wood bracelet. (It's available in multiple colors, but we're a bit partial to the black.)
Hand In Hand
Based in Philadelphia, PA, Hand In Hand sells bar soaps, body washes, lotions, sugar scrubs, and fragrances in amazing scents you’ll fall in love with, including Cactus Blossom, Lavender, Sea Salt, and Citrus Grove. All of their products are made with Fair Trade Ingredients and contain no palm oil. Best of all, for every bar of soap you purchase, Hand In Hand will donate one bar of soap + one month of clean water to a child in need. To date, the company has donated over one million bars of soap and built or repaired four wells that provide thousands of people with clean water. Our favorite is the Bar Soap 4-pack featuring their three signature scents for 22 US dollars.
If you love elephants (and really, who doesn't?), you need to know about Ivory Ella, a mission-driven apparel and lifestyle brand for women that supports elephant conservation. They have committed to donating a minimum of 10% of their profits directly to organizations such as Save the Elephants to support their work in sustaining elephant populations, preserving their habitats and fostering a heightened appreciation and visibility for elephants and their often-fragile existence, and have donated over $1.7 million over the past four years. Whether you're into sweatshirts and baseballs caps, are looking for the perfect bracelet, or need a new popsocket, Ivory Ella has a wonderful selection of super cute products. And football fans will adore their new Ella Fit Powder Blue Soccer Tee that lets them show off their love of soccer and elephants!
Can socks help fight poverty? Well, usually no, but socks from Conscious Step do! For every pair of socks purchased, Conscious Step will make a donation directly to a non-profit that's determined by the type and style of sock you purchase. For instance, they have Socks That Help Dogs that have a subtle gray and black pattern, Socks That Protect Oceans that feature a tidal pattern, and Socks that Fight Hunger in red and navy that provide 3 meals to malnourished children through the work of Action Against Hunger for every pair sold.
