Lully Pulitzer – Prints With Purpose

It’s “Tortuga Time”

A Lilly Pulitzer “Print with Purpose” in support of the sea turtle hospital at Loggerhead Marine Center

 

“Palm Beach, Florida is close to our heart as it’s where this brand came to life in the late 1950s—Palm Beach is also one of the most important sea turtle nesting grounds in the world. Loggerhead Marinelife Center works hard to protect the sea turtle, the ocean and the beaches they inhabit—we are proud supporters of their conservation efforts and are happy to continue our relationship through this ‘Print with Purpose’ and other initiatives, like Beach Bash Palm Beach, this year.” Michelle Kelly, CEO of Lilly Pulitzer.

 

“Sea turtles tell us the health of our ocean; the ocean tells us the health of our planet,” said Jack E. Lighton, Loggerhead Marinelife Center CEO.  “The ‘Tortuga Time’ Print With Purpose will become another legendary print.  Looking good while doing good is a hallmark of Lilly Pulitzer and this print will support our mission of sea turtle and ocean conservation, we are humbled to be paired with such a philanthropic brand and look forward to celebrating together at Beach Bash.

Coyuchi – Nature Comes Home on Earth Day

Make Every Day Earth Day Make Every Day Earth Day

iGive.com wants to help you help your Cause – whatever that cause may be.  On Earth Day this year, we are celebrating one of our merchant partners, Coyuchi, who is dedicated to providing you with quality products, while maintaining a high standard of excellence in environmental and social initiatives.

From an environmental standpoint, Coyuchi looks at the full life of a product—from the farm where the fiber is produced to what happens to the product when it reaches the end of its life. By partnering with fabric mills and workshops that share this reverence for environmental and social sustainability,  Coyuchi’s high quality standards can be maintained and impact on the planet, minimized. Through continued effort and ingenuity, they work to ensure environmental performance at production facilities.

“We believe that knowing where your linens come from and how they are made brings peace of mind.”

Coyuchi uses only natural fibers, sourcing the materials carefully and processing them minimally—so organic cotton truly feels like cotton, linen feels like linen, and wool feels like wool.  To guarantee that products align with these goals to be as ethical, sustainable and environmentally conscious as possible, they rely on guidelines and certifications from organizations around the world, including Global Organic Textile Standards (GOTS) certification and a growing collection of Fair Trade Certified goods.

Bambeco – Every Purchase Plants a Tree

Every purchase plants a tree.

Changing the world sounds big. None of us can change the world alone, but when we all work together, a lot of small choices can make a huge impact – every step makes a difference.  This is Bambeco’s philosophy and also iGive.com’s (by changing shopping for good!).

According to Oxford University research, planting and growing trees is the best way to remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and reverse global warming.

Bambeco is proud to partner with American Forests, the oldest national nonprofit conservation organization in the country, for a joint commitment to restore and protect forests and minimize climate change.

American Forests Logo

With every Bambeco purchase, American Forests will plant a tree. That means every earth friendly purchase adds another tree to our landscape and another step towards counteracting climate change.

Since they launched the “Every Purchase Plants a Tree” initiative last November, they’ve planted over 20,000 trees—enough trees to supply oxygen for 40,000 people, save and clean 2.4 billion gallons of water and absorb 480 tons of carbon dioxide per year!

 

We are unwavering in our commitment to create and source products that are crafted in ways that cause less harm to the environment and reduce our carbon footprint.  For more information, check out Bambeco’s Sustainable Living Blog.

Together, we’ll grow forests. Together, we’ll change shopping for good.

Together we can do so much.

PetSmart – Buy a Bag, Give a Meal

for the love of pets®

To celebrate their 30th anniversary, PetSmart came up with a little idea that can make a big difference for pets in need. Up to 7 million pets enter shelters each year, but not all pets in need live in shelters—some live with pet parents who rely on food banks.

So, when you buy any bag of dog or cat food—all brands, all sizes, no exclusions—they give a meal to a pet in need. These meals will be distributed by PetSmart Charities, not only to pet shelters and rescue groups, but also to food banks across the U.S. and Canada. (They expect to donate more than 60 million meals in 2017.)

Buy A Bag, Give A Meal

 

When you purchase a bag of dry dog or cat food at a PetSmart® store, PetSmart.com or PetSmart.ca between 3/1/17 – 12/31/17, PetSmart will donate a meal (5oz dog food, 1.5oz cat food) to PetSmart Charities® or PetSmart Charities™ of Canada to help feed a dog or cat in need.iGive.com 20 Year Anniversary

iGive.com has been in the business of making it easy to help good causes for 20 years.  We’re proud to be partnered with some amazing stores that have the same sense of responsibility to their customers and the world at large.

JetCares Give a Pack Program

The JetCares Give a Pack Program allows Jet customers to support enrolled nonprofit organizations by making donations to them in the form of JetCash. These donations are used by the nonprofits to purchase JetCares items, like Cuties Economy Plus Packs of diapers.Through the JetCares Community Diaper Program, nonprofit organizations already receive special discounted pricing on these diapers.  This program enables customers to get involved in the giving process.

Why diapers?

Nearly 1 in 3 American families can’t afford diapers. Low income families can spend up to 14% of their annual income on diapers. Low income families struggle to afford enough clean diapers to get by because they do not have as much access to big box stores, credit, or means to buy in bulk at lower prices. This can lead to serious health consequences for both parents and children.

Shopping at Jet via iGive.com means an automatic donation for your iGive Cause and JetCares gives you the chance to chip in even more if you can spare it!

Condor Fulfills Heartfelt Wishes

Make-A-Wish Germany fulfills the long-desired wishes of children and young adults between the ages of three and 18 years, who suffer from life-threatening illnesses. With this, they and their families experience happy and unforgettable moments, which give them hope, strength and joy of life to carry them as they fight against their illness. For iGive merchant partner, Condor Airlines, it is a particular honor to be able to make a small contribution.

In 2016, to celebrate its 60th anniversary, Germany’s most popular leisure airline flew at least one child to a dream destination for a short period of time out of their everyday life, which is too oft determined by illness.

A few trips included:

The 11-year-old Tomàs, who is suffering from cancer, and was happy to visit a sloth farm in Costa Rica. In June, 5-year-old Alicia, who is suffering from cystic fibrosis, finally visited her grandmother in the Dominican Republic.  The next dream that Condor fulfilled in cooperation with Make-A-Wish in August, belonged to Yasin from Munich. The 14-year-old, who is ill with leukemia, simply wanted to spend a carefree holiday with his family in Majorca. “With all my heart I wish for a hotel with a swimming pool”, said Yasin, full of anticipation for the journey.

VSP global logo

Vision Service Plan (VSP), the California Optometric Association, Adventist Health, the Kings County Action Organization (KCAO) and the Tulare County Office of Education  have teamed up to bring the mobile eye care clinic Mobile Eyes to Central Valley California cities like Lindsay, Hanford and McFarland. California State Senator Andy Vidak has made  been a critical advocate in this effort. Vidak has made it his mission to help ensure those in the rural parts of California Senate District 14 have access to eye care.

Beyond 2016, VSP continues to work with the cities to determine how to create sustainable access to eye care services even when the mobile eye clinics are gone. This will support VSP’s larger goal of providing access to eye care to 1 million individuals by 2020.
