Buy One, Give One

December 01, 2015

We’ve all been taught that it’s better to give than to receive. What’s even better than giving? Gifts that give back!

This Giving Tuesday (and for the rest of the holiday season!), choose from a number of products that multiply the good your purchases make, whether it’s building clean water wells, matching donations of health supplies to people in need, or feeding malnourished children. What kind of a difference do you want to make in the world today?

Blue Planet Eyewear
Worldwide, an estimated 285 million people (including 19 million children) are visually impaired, and 80% of all visual impairment can be prevented or cured. For every pair of sunglasses purchased, Blue Planet donates a pair of eyeglasses to someone in need. To date, Blue Planet has given over 75,000 pairs of glasses, improving lives and opening eyes to new possibilities around the globe.

Hand in Hand
Each year over five million people die of diseases caused by poor water quality and lack of proper hygiene. Those deaths can be prevented by handwashing and access to clean water. For every bar of soap purchased, Hand in Hand donates a bar and provides a month of clean water to children in need. Watch a video about the impact of Hand in Hand’s first water well built in Haiti.

High-quality socks made with a mission: “Give + Get + Employ.” For every pair you buy, a pair of socks is given to someone in need. Our good friends at Mitscoots are also working to end homelessness by offering opportunities that get people off the streets and into steady employment.
