Corporations Social Responsibility is such an important thing to think about when purchasing from your favorite brands? What do they stand for, what do they support? You can actually support the things you care most about by shopping! What a quick and easy way to help a community in need. June is Pride Month, and it is so important to support the Pride Community, not just the month of June, but always. You may not know, but some of your favorite brands may be making significant donations to organizations supporting the LGBTQ+ community. Follow along below to see some hot new products from some of My Favorite Brands to Buy From That Support Pride.
Banana Republic / Gap
Over the last five years, Gap Inc. (a former employer of mine where I worked in roles at Gap & Old Navy), has donated over $500,000 to help the LGBTQI+ Community. They have partnered with the United Nations Foundation in support of the UN Free and Equal Campaign for the community. Gap and Banana Republic celebrate Pride month by adding a Pride Collection and continuing to donate to the foundations with the profits of the collection.

I am a huge fan of Banana Republic and I absolutely love the minimalist collection they have created to support Pride Month. It is still very much their style, but with that beautiful pop of color!
Gary Farrell Vineyards and Winery
As I am a Wine Enthusiast, I had to mention one of my favorite wineries that is doing their part to support Pride. One of the most notable efforts has been their joint involvement with the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), one of America’s leading LGBTQ+ civil rights organizations. Plan your visit to Gary Farrell Winery now and taste their delicious wines. Be sure to tell them the JetSetting Fashionista sent you for a visit!!
