Supporting women founded brands is important because it’s a great feeling to see women be successful. However, what’s even better than supporting women-founded brands is supporting the brands that give back. Giving back is especially important today, whether it’s donating to a charity or volunteering to help a community. If you love women-founded brands and want to support those that give back, or just want to know more in general, these 5 brands listed below are a perfect place to start.
- Raven + Lily.
Raven + Lily is a lifestyle brand all about offering trend-forward fair-trade fashion, accessories and home goods. Their main mission is to empower women on a global scale. Raven + Lily was founded by two women, Kirsten Dickerson and Sophia Lin.
They give back by employing artisan women around the world, providing them with a fair wage, access to a safe job, sustainable income, healthcare, and any other tools that they may need to survive and thrive. Also, whenever you purchase from this brand, a portion of the proceeds helps to fund microlands to female entrepreneurs in their partnership communities.
Wildfang is a clothing brand founded in 2013 by three women. Their mission is not only to create a home for badass women but also to empower every kind of woman to be the best possible version of herself. They are all about smashing gender roles and the patriarchy in the process.
This brand is a perfect brand to give back to, because in 2017, they raised over $75,000 for charities including Planned Parenthood, the ACLU, Joyful Heart, and the Tegan and Sara Foundation. If you purchase from Wildfang, you know your money will go to a good cause.
