In the past month, I've put in dozens of online orders for clothes, makeup, books, snacks, and countless other things I probably don't need. I do my part to try and stay informed, only supporting the brands that I feel are doing their part in corporate and social responsibility.
So many of us have had the luxury of being able to spend time at home right now while hundreds of thousands of healthcare workers, grocery providers, and more, are continuing to brave the outside world to continue making sure we can be as comfortable as possible while we wait things out at home.
If you, like me, are online shopping anyway, there are fashion brands that have responded almost immediately to coronavirus (COVID-19) relief efforts I'll do my effort to support when I am feeling like blowing my entire paycheck on clothes — which is, to be fair, most of the time.
These tie-dye biking shorts are among one of the 25,000 shoes and pieces of apparel donated by Puma to nearly a dozen hospitals and healthcare workers in the United States.
Together with its parent company, Deckers, which also owns the noted brand Teva, launched the Better Together initiative to give over $1 million to COVID-19 pandemic relief efforts in the form of both monetary and product donations to NYC healthcare workers, hospitals, and underserved communities regardless of an ability to pay for healthcare or immigration status.
The renowned jewelry designer is giving 50 percent of the profits of the GORGEOUS Everlyne bracelet, pictured and linked above, to feeding children who typically rely on school lunch for their meals.
The first shoe specifically designed for healthcare workers, Nike has already donated 30,000 pairs of the new Air Zoom Plus shoes to healthcare workers on the front lines of fighting COVID-19.
Yes, they're our favorite brand we love to make fun of. But their standard flip-flops aren't so bad, and we're even bigger supporters for them now that they're donating a totally free pair of clog Crocs to any healthcare worker who signs up for them online through their website.
Your favorite flip flop brand has done it again. They and their umbrella company, Alpargatas, have converted their factories to start producing protective equipment for health care professionals, including masks, sanitizers, and COVID-19 test kits, in its home nation. They're distributing 100,000 kits with food and hygiene products to underserved communities.
We've been huge supporters of their classic wristlets (they make the perfect gift), but we love them even more now that the luxury brand has partnered with Goldman Sachs to give over two million dollars to support small business owners.
Whether you decide to tie-dye it or not, the go-to sweatshirt we have in about every single color is owned by parent company, Coalition of American Brands, and all of their companies have banded together to use their factories to produce medical-grade masks.
Yes, Kate Spade is the brand that finds a way to make everything from your stapler to your AirPods case cute, but through their very own Kate Spade Foundation, the American label has pledged $100,000 to Crisis Text Line, providing crisis counseling and emotional support for doctors and nurses with partnerships with the American Red Cross and the United Nations.
Our favorite hippy chic line of clothes, owned by parent company URBN, is donating 25,000 units of protective gear to frontline healthcare workers and essential businesses.
