NEW YORK CITY -- Pride isn't just about sporting rainbows for one month out of the year. It's about committing to listening, learning, growing, and supporting our LGBTQ+ community.
We can take steps by shopping smarter.
Year after year these companies don't just roll out products with pride packaging but help fund major organizations supporting youth, families, and all members of the LGBTQ+ community!
KISS donates to The Trevor Project, the world's largest suicide prevention and crisis intervention organization for LGBTQ young people.
Eyelashes are available in 3 flamboyant styles featuring exclusive rainbow designs, each with a dramatic, glittery, voluminous look!
Beware... the glitter sheds everywhere! And the rainbow mani in minutes comes ready to wear, no glue needed! They're my go-to accessory for weddings.
2. Kiehl's is proud to continuously partner with The Trevor Project, committing to donate $150K to the organization in 2022.
Right now, you can score their best-selling Ultra Moisturizing Facial Cream with limited edition packaging!
3. Nordstrom debuted Be Proud by BP in 2020 as the retailer's first gender-inclusive collection.
10% of sales - up to $250K in 2022 - supports Trans Lifeline's peer support and crisis hotline, run by and for transgender people. Personally, I'm a fan of this shimmering visor!
