There’s no better way to start your morning than with an intention to help others. To help you get started, we’ve narrowed down three ways you can support three causes mere minutes after shutting off your alarm.
1) Cleanse with Hand In Hand Soaps
Start your morning with a clean body and a clean conscious. The soap company who gives 100% of its proceeds back to the children of Haiti has donated 1 million bars of soap and built 4 wells to provide access to clean drinking water for thousands of individuals since launching in 2011.
For every product purchased, one bar of soap and one month of clean water is donated to a child in need through nonprofit partner My Neighborhood’s Children.
Not to mention all products are made with the environment in mind, as all sourcing, harvesting, and packaging is sustainable and all-natural. Lather, rinse, repeat, until everyone has clean water!
2) Rock A Dress (or Tie) from Dressember Foundation
Ending human trafficking is a massive issue our world continues to face; one which Dressember Foundation has decided to tackle both ethically and fashionably.
In 2013, the organization emerged with the mission to raise awareness and funding for anti-trafficking initiatives by restoring dignity to all women and “reclaiming the dress.”
Through its annual Dress Collection, which supports victims of human trafficking, and other advocacy and fundraising initiatives like the Dressember Challenge, the organization is able to give back to multiple partner organizations working towards the eradication of slavery and sex trafficking globally.
You can order your dress (or tie) at the marketplace here, and register to participate in the Dressember Challenge on October 1st!
3) Accessorize with The Giving Keys
Not only is The Giving Keys a cute & customizable accessory to wear and share with friends, but every purchase helps create job opportunities for those transitioning out of homelessness. Its Pay It Forward purchases specifically have generated 136,815 hours of work to date.
By focusing on a sustainable way of breaking the cycles of generational poverty and homelessness and focusing on creating better futures, the Giving Keys allows you to customize your accessory with word of intention as reminder that “who we are tomorrow is not defined by who we were yesterday.” And yes fellas, key necklaces are in for boys too!
