*Thank you to give-back brands Elevate and Baby K’tan for sponsoring this post*

It’s the time of year when we find ourselves navigating through department stores and sifting through those online deals to find the perfect gift. It’s a time of giving and a time to spread joy.

But what if, in the midst of our mission to celebrate the people we love, we could simultaneously make a difference for other people?

These brands are giving gift-seekers the opportunity to do just that. By taking a portion of proceeds from their sales and donating them to a good cause, each company is giving its customers a chance to be a part of extending the giving spirit even further.

Elevate

brands-that-give-back

The Nebraska-based Elevate exists to improve lives and transform communities around the world through opportunity creation rather than charity.

Elevate offers artisan made leather goods that use the highest quality grade of leather on the market. Using eco-friendly production practices, Elevate’s products are naturally dyed to avoid harsh chemicals and toxins. The result? Leather bags, accessories, belts, wallets, and journals that are both sustainable and stylish.  

As a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit, Elevate guarantees 50% of each purchase helps create meaningful and dignified work for the vulnerable in developing countries. By providing vocational training, strategic mentorship, and the capital resources they need to kick-start their careers, the national people are able to take ownership of their own businesses for the first time ever.

Baby K’tan

Baby K’tan was founded by two families who were close friends, both raising children with special needs. They wanted to wear their babies as much as possible, but after experimenting with different baby slings, carriers, and wraps, they couldn’t find anything they loved. So, they began creating different designs combining style, ease of use, and comfort—and the Baby K’tan Baby Carrier was born.

In an effort to give back, Baby K’tan donates a percentage of proceeds from all sales to the American Heart Association and the National Down Syndrome Society. In addition, they have given back to a number of other organizations and charities that benefit babies and children, including the Good + Foundation to which they have donated more than 1,000 diaper bags and more than 2,000 baby carriers.

Learn more about Baby K’tan’s give back mission here and shop their innovative Baby K’tan Baby Carriers (we adore their striped suite of carriers in Navy, Charcoal and Olive!) for parents on your list this year, and know you’re helping give back to other families with your purchase. Use the code FALLSAVINGS on Giving Tuesday (November 27, 2018) for 20% off your purchase.
