Not only will you be able to shop favorite fashion and beauty brands for your loved ones, but you'll also be giving back.
Not familiar with Giving Tuesday? Each year it falls on the first Tuesday after Thanksgiving and is a global movement that promotes charitable giving during the holiday season. There are a variety of ways to take part in the celebration, including making a donation and giving your time or voice to an organization. This season, a number of brands are taking part in Giving Tuesday by donating a 100 percent of the proceeds of items to a charity of choice.
For all your fitness-enthusiast friends, pick up a few gifts from Manduka. You can shop everything from bras and leggings to yoga mats, knowing that 100 percent of the sales made on Nov. 27 will be donated to Susan G. Komen. And, if there's someone on your shopping list who owns everything Outdoor Voices, snag the Don't Look Back Shortsleeve T-Shirt for $35. One hundred percent of the proceeds from the limited-edition tee will go to the non-profit organization, Back On My Feet.
Other retailers are working with multiple organizations. J.Crew for example, has partnered up with Girls Inc., HRC, and charity: water, to create special capsule collections. To support Giving Tuesday, from Nov. 27 to Nov. 29, 100 percent of the sales from the co-branded collaborations will go to the charitable partners. Items range from $15 to $69.50, and include clothing and accessories for all your family members. Pick up the Kids' crewcuts X Human Rights Campaign "Love is the Way" T-shirt for your niece, a tee from the charity: water collection for a man your life, and the J.Crew X Girls Inc. tote bag for your mom.
For the beauty lovers, Fenty Beauty has just dropped the Killawatt Bling Vault Freestyle Highlighter CLF Edition + Brush for $350. The super limited-edition (there are only 10 available) product includes the best-selling metallic-silver highlighter and brush. If you're one of the lucky few who scores the exclusive Swarovski crystal-coated items, 100 percent of your purchase will go to the Clara Lionel Foundation, Rihanna's non-profit organization. The foundation is dedicated to helping education, health, and emergency response programs around the world. And, to make this gift even more special, Rihanna custom-selected the Swarovski gunmetal crystals that were then applied by hand.
