Sometimes it's hard to feel like you can make a difference, especially as a young person. How will my $10 donation to organizations like the ACLU even make a difference? That's why we decided to write giving back into our business plan. So you can do the fun part and we can do the donating. A collective 9% of your purchase will be donated to these organizations.

For nearly 100 years, the ACLU has been our nation’s guardian of liberty, working in courts, legislatures, and communities to defend and preserve the individual rights and liberties that the Constitution and the laws of the United States guarantee everyone in this country. Whether it’s achieving full equality for LGBT people, establishing new privacy protections for our digital age of widespread government surveillance, ending mass incarceration, or preserving the right to vote or the right to have an abortion, the ACLU takes up the toughest civil liberties cases and issues to defend all people from government abuse and overreach.
