At TomboyX we believe that brands should be a force for good in the world. This year TomboyX donated over $50,000 to charities throughout the country, supporting organizations big and small that we believe in. We take a special interest in homeless youth charities and LGBTQ+ organizations. We know that giving back to the community is not only important and rewarding, but our responsibility.
In addition to the causes we donate to year-round, we are also participating in GivingTuesday, a global generosity movement that unleashes the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world. This year we will be donating $1 from every order to Immigrant Families Together. Immigrant Families Together is a non-profit that is dedicated to reuniting and supporting immigrant families separated at the US/Mexico border. The entire organization is staffed by volunteers and 100% of funds raised goes directly to the families. Our co-founder Naomi is a first-generation Cuban-American, meaning today’s immigration issues are particularly top-of-mind for her.
Today we’re focused on GivingTuesday, and supporting Immigrant Families Together. We also invite you to help support these other organizations which are close to our hearts.
