With many of us safe at home, we must remember those on the front lines going to work every day and those whose financial state is in extreme jeopardy. For those of us at a standstill, wanting to help but not sure how to from our homes, I have compiled a list of online stores that are contributing to COVID-19 relief with each purchase. With so much time on our hands and our desire to shop 24/7, I encourage you to invest in companies who are investing in society.
Allbirds shoes are known to be incredibly comfortable and environmentally friendly. The brand has already donated $500,000 worth of shoes to healthcare professionals. Additionally, if you purchase any pair of Allbirds shoes they will immediately donate a pair of wool runners to a healthcare professional who is on their feet all day.
Dyson engineers have designed and began manufacturing ventilators with Dyson’s digital motor at its heart. The company plans to make at least 15,000 ventilators for COVID-19 patients. You can support Dyson’s awesome work by purchasing anything from a hairdryer to a vacuum cleaner.
Nike has committed more than $17 million to COVID-19 efforts around the world. In researching for this post it was clear to see that Nike has given a lot in relation to other companies of their magnitude. They are also manufactory PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) such as full face shields and lenses to protect against the coronavirus. Get some workout gear or new shoes to be excited about when we can go out again.
$20 from an $150+ order of amazing basics will be donated directly to Feeding America’s COVID-19 response fund. Support hunger relief by shopping Modern Citizen.
