If you’re feeling a little guilty from the shopping escapades of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, but you can’t resist the many sales that are still ongoing, ease your conscious by shopping in support of Giving Tuesday, a movement that seeks to encourage and promote generosity among people, communities and brands.
Honoring the movement, many retailers have created even more incentive to shop, whether it’s donating proceeds to the ACLU or providing clean water to those in need. Below are 16 brands participating in Giving Tuesday, with some even offering special discounts just for today.
Huckberry’s Cyber Monday sale has been extended, so if you missed out the first time around, make sure you snag a couple pieces today. In honor of Giving Tuesday, for every purchase made a tree will be planted, so you can basically consider yourself an arborist.
Shopping Everlane’s 100% Human collection already does some good — for each product sold, the brand donate’s 10% of the sale for the ACLU. But for Giving Tuesday, Everlane has decided to double the donation and give 20% to the ACLU. Now you can sport the line’s range of sweatshirts, tees, face masks and even bandanas — and be reminded of the good you did.
For those still scrambling to find gifts, whether it be for the men or women in your life, look no further than Richer Poorer’s Gift Packs. Choose from the Lounge Pack, Boxer Pack or this one featuring the brand’s insanely comfortable recycled fleece sweats and hoodie, and not only will you save money, but for every pack purchased Richard Poorer will donate one.
Currently Outerknown’s best-selling styles are 30% off (including the ever-popular Blanket Shirt) while 100% of proceeds (nearly $50k) from these select styles will be donated to the LA Students Most in Need Fund (through the California Community Foundation) which aims to help students who are unable to benefit from in-person schooling.
Pick up a new pair of handsome leather boots or grooming goods at The Verticale, a multi-retailer carrying carefully curated brands, and for every purchase made $10 will be donated to Feeding America, now through tomorrow.
Continuously inspired by the legacy and style of Princess Diana, Rowing Blazers created the red balloon capsule collection after coming across a photo of the Princess wearing a British Lung Foundation sweatshirt (of which she was the patron). Now 100% of net proceeds from the collection will be donated to the British Lung Foundation, so you can carry on both the Princess of Wales’ legacy and style.
If you have yet to get your hands on one of the cult-favorite Always Pan from Our Place, go ahead and make the investment now and 10 meals will be donated to those in need in partnership with Feeding America, all as a result of your purchase.
You (yes, you) could attend a virtual cooking class with the Tom Colicchio for the mere price of $30. The famed chef has partnered with Made In to raise funds for the Independent Restaurant Coalition, featuring the brand’s Carbon Steel Roasting Pan.

It can never hurt to have a few gift cards on deck in the event you need a last-minute gift, and now Anthropologie is offering even more incentive to pick a couple up by donating $10 from every card purchased to the International Child Art Foundation.
