We’re always down to shop a woman-owned brand, especially one that gives back to a female-focused charitable organization. But on International Women’s Day 2022 (IWD), which falls on March 8, we’re giving these brands a little extra limelight.
This year, a handful of brands—woman-owned and otherwise—are showing their support for a gender equal world that’s equitable and inclusive for everyone. Some are offering sales all month long in honor of Women’s History Month, plus giving back to IWD-focused initiatives with select purchases. Others are doubling-down on the donations on March 8 only, making it all the more imperative to shop ASAP.
Luxe beauty products, chic jewelry, feminist phone cases—there’s a gift for everyone that gives back this International Women’s Day.
10 brands giving back for International Women’s Day 2022
1. Richer Poorer x Gorjana
Two of our fave woman-led brands (whose founders are ironically sisters) are teaming up to raise $50,000 for International Women’s Day 2022. Through the end of the month, Richer Poorer and Gorjana have put their heads together to create a necklace-tank top collab that will donate 100 percent of the net sales to Dress for Success Worldwide West. You can buy each piece separately, or snag the Ribbed Set Duo ($95) on Gorjana, here.
Not so fun fact: According to a study by Portsmouth University, the main reason 73 percent of pre-teen and teenage girls drop out of sports is due to breast concerns, aka, not having the right bra. Sweaty Betty is trying to change that. For every bra purchased between March 3-9, the Sweaty Betty Foundation—the brand’s independent charity—will donate a bra to a young girl in need. This means you and someone in need gets a fancy schmancy new bra, like the Stamina Longline Sports Bra ($44)—a win-win for everyone. Shop the sale here.
For the fourth year in a row, Casetify has launched its “Her Impact Matters” collection of phone cases and tech accessories designed entirely by women artists. Throughout the end of the month, 10 percent of each sale goes directly back to Equality Now, an organization determined to make meaningful legal change for women and girls around the world. Shop the collection here.
Skip the expensive manicure and give yourself a nail treatment that gives back. Through the end of the month, Le Mini Macaron will be donating 20 percent of the net sales of its new Love Your Nails Treatment Trio ($25) to Girls On The Run International, a program for 8 to 13-year-old girls that promotes empowerment through running. Talk about “nailing it.” Buy your trio here.
Snuggly slippers that feel amazing and give back to a good cause? Take my credit card. Through March 14, UGG will donate $25 per pair of Purple Sky Fluff Yeah Slide Sandals($100) to Planned Parenthood Southeast (with a maximum donation of $25,000). They’re fluffy, they’re colorful, and they do more than just look cute. *Adds to cart.*
Not to stress you out, but wedding season is right around the corner… If you’ve got a special event coming up, bop on over to Birdy Grey, where mauve, lilac, and silver gowns are 25 percent off for IWD. With every qualifying dress sold during this time, the brand will donate a dress to Operation Prom and The Princess Project—two charities that help underprivileged teens get their own special night. Use the code “BIRDY4EQUALITY” at checkout.
From March 7-13, inclusive beauty retailer Thirteen Lune will be donating 10 percent of all sales to the Girls Inc. Los Angeles Chapter, where the brand’s co-founder, Nyakio Grieco, has been mentoring girls for years. Now’s your chance to try some of our faves while giving back, like Hyper Skin Hyper Even Brightening Dark Spot Serum ($36) or the Kadalys Banana Lip Balm ($19). Stock your cart here.
