The prospect of helping fight a global pandemic from home can be overwhelming. For those of us not in the medical and science communities, or in politics, where do we begin? How can we give and support if we’re quarantined far from the front lines? Donations are a great place to start, and many fashion labels are currently offering opportunities to give back monetarily, in addition to the donations they’re already making themselves.
Independent designers and small businesses around the world and in the U.S. in particular have been creating pathways for customers to lend a hand, whether that means donating a percentage of their online sale proceeds to the Red Cross, Doctors Without Borders, or a local food bank. Many are focusing their efforts on sending gifts and supplies to nurses and doctors in overcrowded hospitals, while others are even offering to send Venmo money to whatever cause or individual a customer chooses.
Though this is a daunting and frightening time for everyone, there’s really no shortage of ways to give back while staying socially distanced. Here are 61 brands that are using their line platforms, and their designs, to give to those in need during the coronavirus outbreak.
