Products that Give Back this Month

When there is a cause you want to support or feel strongly about, there are many ways you can voice your opinion and help make an impact. Domestic Violence Awareness is important to me because it’s a topic we don’t often talk about due to the shame around it. There are many men and women you might think are in a good place but you really don’t know what happens behind closed doors. It’s important to be kind and not judge victims, survivors and everyone you meet, you never know what pains they are internalizing.

A few ways to show your support to any cause you want to help:

  1. Donate money directly to a cause
  2. Volunteer your time to help others
  3. Attend a gala or event raising money for that cause
  4. Sharing on social media the events, products, and information that help support that cause
  5. Shopping for products and with companies that give back

For the month of October, there are many amazing brands making a difference by featuring key products or services that give back to non-profits that help victims and survivors of Domestic Violence. I chose these items below because I truly think they are business leaders doing their part to create a space that impacts many people lives.  

If you have a friend’s birthday coming up or celebrate the holidays, you can start buying your gifts now and save them for later or gift them to yourself. The message behind each product makes it much more special.
