While 2020 was a year of immense difficulty, upheaval, and change, one thing remained the same: we at ModCloth believe that a little kindness goes a long way. That’s why this year we partnered with and donated to organizations that also strive to make the world a kinder place, from Black Lives Matter to I Am a Voter. Keep scrolling to read about these eight wonderful organizations and how you can show your support in the new year. Cheers to brighter days ahead!

This past summer, we learned a lot as a brand. Like actions speak louder than words. We need to listen to voices other than our own. And that our customers are even more compassionate and big-hearted than we could ever imagine. But most importantly, as we took time to reflect inwards, we learned a most valuable lesson: it was time for action. 

In addition to our donation to Black Lives Matter, an organization that helps fight against racial inequality and injustice, we committed to using our platform to uplift and amplify black voices across our brand - from the models we use to the small businesses we partner with.

As COVID-19 stay-at-home orders increased, those affected by domestic violence and relationship abuse were put even more at risk. Since this is an issue that disproportionately affects women, we recognized as a female-first organization that we had to take action, donating 10% of all site proceeds to the National Domestic Violence Hotline in their COVID-19 relief efforts. This essential organization supports survivors, provides hope in times of crisis, and promotes healthy relationships for all.

In honor of Pride Month this past June, we launched our Peace, Love, and Rainbows Shop to celebrate all of the colors of the rainbow. To lend our support to the LGBTQ community, 10% of the purchase price from select rainbow styles were donated to The Trevor Project. Founded in 1998, The Trevor Project is the leading national organization providing crisis intervention, and life-saving, life-affirming suicide prevention services to LGBTQ young people under 25.

The 2020 presidential election was one of the most important of our lifetime. And at ModCloth, we wanted to do everything in our power to get out the vote; after all, friends don't let friends not vote! That’s why we partnered with I am a voter, a nonpartisan movement that believes democracy works best when we all participate. 50% of proceeds from our exclusive "I am a voter" tee was donated to this essential organization to help promote voting and civic engagement.

As our customers know, ModCloth is all about women supporting women. And our collaboration with Dazey LA was no different! Made ethically in LA using organic cotton, our colorful collaboration of tees looked good and did good. 10% of proceeds from our collaboration was donated to Girl Up, a movement to advance girls’ skills, rights, and opportunities to lead. Because when girls rise, we all rise!

Books are gifts that keep on giving, especially to a child in need. That's why we partnered with First Book this holiday season! The nonprofit social enterprise focuses on equal access to quality education for kids in need, provides educators with brand-new, high-quality books, educational resources, and other essentials to help kids learn.  To lend our support to this wonderful organization, 50% of net proceeds from select literary styles were donated to First Book. And in honor of Giving Tuesday, we upped the giving to 100% of proceeds for one day only!

Who run the world? Queen bees, literally! To protect and promote our planet's pollinators we partnered with Planet Bee Foundation, an environmental education nonprofit on a mission to change the world - one bee and one mind at a time! They educate, empower and unite people from all walks of life through the wonder of bees and their plight by teaching environmental stewardship. To help heal the hive, 100% of proceeds from two bee-tiful ModCloth tees were donated to help feed millions of bees! Can you bee-lieve it?

When it comes to paw-tnerships, it doesn't get much better than A Purposeful Rescue! The 501C3 non-profit is dedicated to saving paww-dorable dogs from high-kill Los Angeles area shelters. The grrr-eat organization specializes in the protection of Magical Unicorns, aka amazing dogs who may have been overlooked at crowded shelters. To help support these paw-some pals, we created a custom bandana and T-shirt with 100% of proceeds going towards A Purposeful Rescue!
