We shy away from big holiday sales because slashing prices and following in the footsteps of large retailers is voting for an economic model that is harmful to small independent businesses, and often the environment and the people mass producing consumer goods. However, we will jump at the chance to support charitable giving and a more ethical model of capitalism.
This holiday season, we are particularly sensitive to what's happening around us politically and socially, and we want to raise awareness and move more spending power into the hands of those helping to respect and restore people and place. Donate to the non-profit of your choice and we will give you 20% off your order.
From November 23rd to December 31st, forward us your donation confirmation email or a screenshot of the final payment screen from the donation process and we will send you a coupon valid until the end of 2016 as a thanks for spending less and doing more good. Send these to firstname.lastname@example.org
If there is an organization or cause important to you, please support it. We also have some suggestions below:
Help protect indigenous rights and the human right to clean water.
Ensure Standing Rock and the surrounding indigenous areas have the medical supplies and experience they need
Take a stand for women's bodily autonomy and reproductive rights and support access to birth control and women's health needs
Provide at-risk LGBTQ youth with a support network and access to 24/7 crisis and suicide prevention hotline
Defend and preserve the Constitution’s promise of liberty for everyone in our country.
We can all help prevent suicide. The Lifeline provides 24/7, free and confidential support for people in distress, prevention and crisis resources for you or your loved ones, and best practices for professionals.

SONG envisions a sustainable South that embodies the best of its freedom traditions and works towards the transformation of our economic, social, spiritual, and political relationships. We envision a multi-issue southern justice movement that unites us across class, age, race, ability, gender, immigration status, and sexuality; a movement in which LGBTQ people – poor and working class, immigrant, people of color, rural – take our rightful place as leaders shaping our region’s legacy and future. We are committed to restoring a way of being that recognizes our collective humanity and dependence on the Earth.
An all volunteer social justice organization dedicated to ensuring equal access to women's reproductive information and services
