At T&C, philanthropy is a cornerstone of our identity. Each year, our Summer issue is centered around philanthropy in all its forms. This year, we profiled Pharrell Williams on his non-profit organization Yellow, Marlo Thomas and St. Jude’s Hospital, Hugh Evans CEO of Global Citizen, and Taraji P. Henson’s Boris Lawrence Henson Foundation in honor of her veteran father. And keep your eye out for our virtual Philanthropy Summit, which will be right around the corner with a few star guests, some of which were mentioned above.
But giving back doesn’t have to mean starting a foundation, founding a hospital, or throwing a huge festival. And it’s definitely not reserved only for impactful celebrities. One of the best ways to support your favorite causes, charities, and communities is through your dollar. Not only does it cause a positive feedback cycle, by increasing funding for community programs, marginalized people, etc., it is also an effective way of fighting back against corporations, people, or policies you deem to be unethical.
Besides money, the gift of time makes all the difference. Showing up to volunteer, to support your communities, and to show solidarity with the people you care about can sometimes stretch further than even a dollar. And as the world recovers from the pandemic, there will be more opportunities to get involved than ever before.
To complement the launch of our Summer Philanthropy Issue, we’ve compiled our favorites brands, and products that give back below.
