This brand is so much more than its patriotic apparel. For every select garment sold, Peace Collective donates two meals to a Canadian child in need through Breakfast Club of Canada. Recently, they’ve taken on another cause and created the #Unignorable t-shirt in partnership with Pantone and United Way to put a spotlight on local issues such as social isolation, poverty and unemployment. Keep an eye out for more #Unignorable items and apparel in 2019.
Afemme x Moon Time Sisters
Did you know that one third of Canadian women under 25 have struggled to afford menstrual products? That’s why it’s so important to support charities like Moon Time Sisters, which was born out of a need to help young women, specifically in northern communities, who are facing such difficulties. You can purchase women’s shelter kits through the brand’s website or one of Afemme’s handmade beaded bracelets, which also has a vision of normalizing menstruation stigma.
Cheekbone Beauty x First Nations Child and Family Caring Society
When Cheekbone Beauty founder Jenn Harper was creating her cosmetics company she was simultaneously researching how to close the funding gap that exists between traditional and First Nations schools, which is often up to 50 per cent less. The Indigenous beauty brand donates 10 per cent of its profits to First Nations Child & Family Caring Society and has even bigger goals on the mind–to donate 100 per cent of proceeds from online purchases of its lip kit by 2023.
