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.
