When you give your friend a celebrity-approved red lipstick or a sold-out basket bag you spotted way back when on Reformation, they probably won't guess they're on the receiving end of gifts that give back. But since you'll be spending money during the holiday gifting season — sometimes, a lot of money — there are stores to shop that are donating 100 percent of proceeds to nonprofits and charity organizations. Yes, not a portion of proceeds, not 10 percent: the whole shebang.
What do Reformation, Anthropologie, and goop have in common? Other than dreamy clothing, each have stocked Indego Africa's basket bags and goods.

Though the bags are structural beauties on their own, woven from natural fibers by African artisans, 100 percent of each sale's proceeds are donated back to the education of the artisans Indego Africa works with.
