When I began Favor, I was in the middle of a cultural anthropology degree with the intention of working in non-profits. I have always loved volunteering and helping organizations that are doing good work. I have tried to run Favor as ethically and responsibly as possible and I am so happy that we can help support these organizations.
Women for women international
We donated 5% of all online sales to this charity in 2016. In cases of war, it is often women who are the most marginalized. Women for Women works to help survivors of war and conflict by offering educational opportunities focused on social and economic empowerment.
Raphael house of Portland
During the 2016 Black Friday Weekend, we donated 15% of all sales to Raphael House. This charity runs a women's shelter in Portland, Oregon, giving beds and support to women and children fleeing domestic violence. They also offer advocacy and education programs with the intention of ending domestic violence for good.
UNICEF NEPAL EARTHQUAKE RELIEF
I was lucky to travel through Nepal in 2014 and I feel a special connection to this place. The earthquakes that hit in 2015 devastated the Kathmandu Valley and surrounding areas and UNICEF focuses on providing aid to children and families who lost everything.
natural resources defense council
The NRDC works within the legal system to create environmental protections around the world. We have a vested interest in keeping the planet in the best shape as possible, which is why we use ethical sourcing and low-impact manufacturing. We have had flash sales to raise money for this organization after environmental disasters.
Scrap is a Portland-based arts charity that inspires creative reuse of materials. We donate tools and excess jewelry materials to them so that they can offer educational programs and affordable art materials to the community.
