Happy International Happiness Day! While yes, today (and every day) is about making yourself happy, International Happiness Day is also about something bigger. It’s about connecting with other human beings and making happiness a fundamental goal for everyone around the world.
That’s why we’ve rounded up eight incredibly charitable brands that sell goodies that won’t just make you happy (because you own something fabulous), but also help others around the world be happy. Whether it’s because proceeds go towards ending poverty or towards improving mental health, these products aim to help many people, and we think they deserve some recognition.
philosophy donates 1% of all of its sales to support mental health and wellness through the hope & grace initiative. All the products contribute to this, but we’re highlighting the brand’s new Live Joyously perfume, which is not only perfect for spring, but also has a name that speaks to our hearts.
Not only does this soap smell amazing, but 100% of proceeds go to working on eye health projects in developing countries.
This shirt super cute and this product donates $7 to Sevenly’s featured charity of the week!
This is definitely one of our favorite body lotions, plus 100% of the price goes to organizations working for environmental conversation, animal welfare and human rights.
This bangle has an incredible message. On top of keeping you positive, but 20% of proceeds go to the Joe Andruzzi Foundation, which helps cancer patients and their families.
This bag is stylish and functional — two of our favorite things. Not to mention it helps feed the world!
The brand works with craftsmen in Ethiopia, Kenya and Malawi. Need more reasons to buy? This clutch is super chic!
