Brands to Support to Make This Giving Tuesday Impactful
Shopping with intention.
The act of giving back, not only to ourselves but to our communities, is a core pillar at rē•spin. Thus, we honor Giving Tuesday, a global movement celebrating radical generosity worldwide.
Take a moment this Giving Tuesday and beyond to delve deeper into the spirit of giving back this holiday season by recognizing those brands that are giving back. Here we share brands in the rē•spin shop that give a portion of their sales to different foundations and organizations, regularly making charitable donations so that you can make a difference as you shop.
Co-founder Brandon Bert’s family has been creating certified organic, non-GMO greens for over three generations to harvest peak nutrition. Through Amazing Grass, co-founders Todd and Brandon have set out to positively impact their company, community, and the world. Last year, they created the internal Board of Change Makers, focusing on nutrition, sustainability, education, diversity, and inclusion, raising money for organizations like Vitamin Angels, Trees For the Future, and Learn to Give.
In 2018, three-time cancer survivor Jill Johnson and her son set out to create meaningful gifts that would serve as tokens of strength for their recipients.

Clevr Blends is a women-led wellness brand based in coastal California. It got its start as a pop-up, adaptogenic coffee bar in 2016. However, after traveling to the United States to educate others on the benefits of herbs and plants, the founders created the accessible wellness brand we know today. With each purchase, the brand gives 1% to the nonprofit of your choosing.
As part of the Human Beauty Movement, this brand — rooted in self-love — pledges to support inclusion, wellness, and sustainability, within the beauty industry and beyond.

Additionally, humanist Beauty has committed to donating 3% of gross revenue to vetted 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations.
Joy Smith’s goal as a mother, grandmother, and humanitarian has always been to bring comfort and compassion to everyone she can reach. Before becoming the CEO and co-founder of Joy Organics, she struggled with sleep and other health issues, leading her to seek natural support for her body — eventually leading her to CBD. Last year, the brand launched an initiative called Joy In Action. This initiative selects nonprofits focused on improving the lives of their local communities, and each month, the team donates a portion of its revenues.
The female-founded company is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to alleviating poverty by promoting the economic self-sufficiency of women across the globe.

Rooted in traditional Chinese medicine, co-founders Gianna de la Torre and Britta Plug have committed to supporting the AAPI community via quarterly donations. So when buying the brand’s face and body products, you have the benefit of knowing that the brand knows how to give back — not just to the self through wellness but also to the community that holds us.
Parachute was launched in 2014 to provide consumers with impeccable bedding for their homes; since then, they have expanded to other areas of the home so that customers can curate environments that complement their daily lives.

In addition, Parachute donates a net to the organization for every Venice Set sold.
