PuraVida’s woven, braided, and beaded bracelets make it easy to accentuate your style with a combination of color and style options to choose from to fit your personality. But the best part about these bracelets is that some of the bracelet styles belong to the Charity Collection, where the bracelet represents a particular cause that the sale gives back to--like the Mental Health Awareness bracelet. Purchase one of their products and show your solidarity to a cause while giving back!
Toms was an early adopter of the One for One model of giving back, donating a pair of shoes for every pair purchased. Their giving model has since evolved--they now donate $1 for every $3 they earn from product purchases. Some of these funds are still used to donate shoes, while the rest is distributed to humanitarian organizations through their Global Giving Fund.

Two Blind Brothers makes ultra soft designer clothing from natural fibers for the sole purpose of funding blindness research. At a young age, owners, Bradford and Bryan Manning were both diagnosed with an eye disease that causes blindness over time. This condition has inspired a special vigilance for details, a passion that carries over into the construction of their clothing line. They donate 100% of profits at the end of the year to charitable foundations, programs, and researchers focused on their mission.
