The Weekly Covet: The Best Brands That Give Back With Every Purchase – Town & Country

Every item on this page was chosen by a Town & Country editor. We may earn commission on some of the items you choose to buy.
When it comes to philanthropic causes, these companies are using their profits to make the world a better place.
Once a week, we ask our editors to share the items they’ve been loving or lusting after—whether it’s a new skincare product we’re dying to try or a travel essential we can’t live without. Consider “The Weekly Covet” your editor-approved wish list for beauty, travel, fashion, and everything in between.
“Want to do good while having fun? The Ali Forney Center, the great New York non-profit serving LGBTQ+ youth, is throwing a dance-a-thon this Sunday, November 20th, in New York City to raise funds for its food services program. You can donate then go dance to ‘Borderline.’ A thousand dollars raised is the equivalent of 400 meals.” —Erik Maza, Executive Style Director
“I love this adorable frog charm from Muse x Muse, and I love it even more because it supports Glasswing International, a nonprofit that addresses childhood poverty through education and health programs.” —Dania Ortiz, Fashion & Accessories Director
“If you listened to man-on-the-street interviews in the run-up to the midterm elections, you likely realized how profoundly uninformed (and often disenchanted) the average voter is. Well, the site aims to change that by introducing subscribers every Monday morning to candidates for the senate whom they may choose to support with a small-dollar donation (if the candidates don’t pass the smell test, the donation can be re-allocated to a number of non-profits like Planned Parenthood and P.A.I.N.). Founded by the writers Michael Bullock and Dale Peck with the support of Downtown for Democracy, underlines the importance of grass-roots crowdfunding in an electoral system increasingly polluted by special interests and corporate influence, and it needs all the support it can get.”—Erik Maza, Executive Style Director
“The Parks Project is dedicated to helping protect national parks around the US, and shopping their very cool, vintage-inspired merch directly helps fund their work around the States.” —Emily Burack, News Writer
“Many small towns, including the one where I live, have fire and ambulance services staffed by volunteers. Getting involved by donating your time or money, is a great way to help your neighbors. If you prefer to give to a national organization, there are many to choose from, including Tunnel to Towers Foundation, which helps the families of firefighters and veterans who died in the line of duty.” —Norman Vanamee, Articles Director
“The NYC Animal Care Center is on a mission to end animal homelessness in NYC and every donation helps them work towards that goal. As someone who loves animals but doesn’t have a pet, this is a great way to help take care of animals in my neighborhood.” —Ana Osorno, Social Media Editor
“Museum gift shops are a great way to ensure your purchase gives back to support the arts. The Jewish Museum has an incredible shop that directly goes to their mission—you can never have too many candlesticks, right?” —Emily Burack, News Writer
“Michael Kors continues it’s Watch Hunger Stop campaign for another year. By purchasing this tote, made in collaboration with the artist NEWYORKSOMETIMES, you’ll help provide about 216 school meals to children around the world. What’s not to love about that?” —MaryKate Boylan, Senior Fashion Editor
“Does it get any cuter than this Christmas stocking? All Bauble Stockings are hand-stitched in Haiti for fair trade, and this one in particular, was designed by none other than Kathy Hilton. Even better? 10% of the proceeds go to GLAAD, an organization that is committed to promoting LGBTQ acceptance.” —Sophie Dweck, Associate Shopping Editor
“The lavender body scrub from Thistle Farms not only smells amazing, but it also supports the organization’s mission of helping survivors recover and heal from prostitution, trafficking, and addiction.” —Caroline Hallemann, Digital Director
“100% of the proceeds of this Tory Burch Foundation Seed Box go toward the Tory Burch Foundation, which empowers female entrepreneurs and business owners. Inside, you’ll find a Tory Burch scarf, coasters, sunscreen, and more- all created by women.” —Marley Gifford, Freelance Fashion Assistant
“Not only does Bulgari make the most beautiful accessories around (the Serpenti bag has been my go-to evening purse for years!), but the luxury brand also supports good causes. In honor of World Children’s Day on November 20, Bulgari will be donating 10% of sales from the site to Save the Children’s Arte di Bulgari program, which supports arts programs in schools. ” —Sophie Dweck, Associate Shopping Editor
“God’s Love We Deliver—a NYC based non-profit that provides free nutritious and medically tailored meals for people living with severe illness in the metropolitan area— is a cause near and dear to my heart. This year, they’ve partnered Burlap & Barrel to develop three salt-free herb and spice blends that add zest, savory flavors, and sweetness to anything the at-home chef could imagine, with 20% of the sales donated to the organization. It’s a yummy—and easy—way to make a difference.”—Roxanne Adamiyatt, Deputy Digital Lifestyle Director
