By donating 1% of sales to The Trevor Project year round, we're able to raise awareness about this fantastic and life-saving organization. In honor of Giving Tuesday, we'd like to re-raise (that's a word, right?) awareness about the other organizations we've donated to this year. Even if the global conversation has shifted or quieted, these organizations need continued support, which is why we're doubling every donation we made to them in 2021. If any of these organizations resonate with you, we'd love for you to join us in supporting them.
