6 BUSINESSES DOING A GIVEBACK INSTEAD OF A DISCOUNT
We know Black Friday weekend as the biggest weekend for savings, sales, markdowns and blowouts. Last year was the first year we didn’t do a price drop. Instead, we took the formerly known ‘Black Friday’ and turned it into our own GIVING WEEKEND!
Although we love discounts, we love building community more. We supported the Canadian Girl Guides by including a complimentary box of cookies in every order made throughout Giving Weekend. Last year we donated over 150 boxes of Girl Guide cookies and this year, we want to double it! For every order made [big or small no matter the item] we are including a complimentary box of Girl Guide cookies!
We’re not the only business doing a giveback instead of a discount. Check out six other businesses that are also giving back this Giving Weekend. Learn more about other businesses choosing to support charities and non-profit organizations below!
As Canada’s first-ever DIY Studio, of course, Pinnovate has a crafty giveback up its sleeve! For every purchase over $100 made on Pinnovate’s online store, they will donate a DIY kit to the Children’s Hospital.
CIRA, short for the Canadian Internet Registration Authority, has created a limited edition t-shirt with proceeds from every purchase going to Chic Geek, a digital community that helps women advance their careers in technology. For every .CANADIAN t-shirt sold, CIRA is donating $10 to Chic Geek, a digital business community, to equip women in tech with the tools and resources they need to speed up their tech careers.
On of our resident content creators, Kassey, is donating 10% from every photoshoot book on Friday and Monday to the Calgary Silver Linings Foundation who promote wellness and eating disorder recovery!
MILK JAR CANDLE CO.
The infamous candle company, Milk Jar, is only taking part in Giving Tuesday this year. 25% off all sales made on Tuesday, November 30th will donate to Milk Jar’s featured list of charities.
As a give back to our front-line heroes, Rvitta Energy Tea ran a giveaway on their Instagram account for all first responders. Giving away free cases of energy teas, Rvitta is giving away cases to any first responders and/or front-line workers that popped into their offices! If you or someone you know is a front-line worker and could benefit from a little pick-me-up, pop by the Rvitta office!
The award-winning chocolate company, Dwarf Stars, will donate a portion of their profits made throughout BFCM sales to the Alice Sanctuary. The Alice Sanctuary is a Calgary-based non-profit that provides care and healing for surrendered, rescued and abandoned farm animals.
Over the last four years, KOTN donated 100% of our Black Friday weekend’s proceeds towards building schools in rural Egypt, where the cotton for their collections is grown. This year, every order made on KOTN’s website will fund the build-out and operations of 5 more schools, up to $250,000 CAD.
