Giving Back Feels Good
Along with drinking our fair share of eggnog, happily hunting for gifts, and hanging with loved ones (something that wasn’t possible last year), the holidays are a time for reflection, giving thanks, and, yes, giving back.
Naturally, Giving Tuesday is the perfect opportunity for us to recognize the many amazing charities we work with throughout the year. From empowering women, girls, and families to keeping products out of landfills, we partner with diverse local and global groups. The objective is always the same: to make a difference.
To this end, ThirdLove has donated more than $50M in bras, underwear, and sleepwear. And since we began tracking donations in 2017, we’ve given away 700,000 products to those in need.
While we often work with smaller organizations during unexpected situations (i.e., natural disasters or, gulp, a pandemic), our main partners, who we work with consistently, are chosen based on their impact, scale, and reach. Here, we highlight three of them:
I Support the Girls
This organization collects and distributes new and gently worn bras and menstrual hygiene products to girls and women through homeless and domestic violence shelters, refugee settlement homes, foster care, and LGBTQ agencies. In the past three years, it has helped more than 180,000 women around the world.
ThirdLove sends items that have been returned in good condition in multiple bra colors to ISTG.
The mission of Soles4Souls is to provide people in need with the necessary professional clothing they need to qualify for jobs and school. It also offers a micro-enterprise opportunity where recipients can resell the clothing donations to start their own businesses.
ThirdLove donates gently used returns to Soles4Souls.
A global leader in product philanthropy and purposeful giving, Good 360 partners with socially responsible companies to source highly needed goods. It distributes them through a network of diverse nonprofits supporting people impacted by natural disasters, and other challenging life events. The mission? Transform lives by providing hope, dignity, and a sense of renewed possibility.
