23 Ways to Shop & Donate During This Time

We rounded up a few of our favorite brands that are giving back.

By: Jodi Taylor

As we all navigate COVID-19 and the many updates that are thrown at us daily, we find ourselves looking for ways to give back and to lend a hand to the many people and companies in need. We’ve also tuned into what some of our favorite brands are doing during this time. On the luxury house front, you have LVMH producing disinfectant gel out of their French perfume and cosmetics facilities, which they will then donate to French health authorities, and the likes of Prada and Donatella Versace, along with her daughter, Allegra, are donating to hospitals in Milan to help support the fight against the virus—just to name a few.

There are also handfuls of other, smaller companies doing their part by donating a percentage of their profits to various aid organizations. Below are a few of our favorite ways you can purchase and donate from the comfort of your own couch.
