While the entire world is facing a very huge economic setback, with some companies currently laying off most of their employees, we still somehow see some companies or brands who have dedicated a lot to giving back to society during the COVID-19 crisis.
When we talk about brands, you’re not merely mentioning multibillion-dollar companies or corporations that are owned by the government. We are actually also looking at some individuals who have somehow made a name from whatever they do in whatever field they are in. In this article, we are going to be looking at some of them.
Brands who have given back during the COVID-19
In most of the industries, some people have realized that they are not merely making money for themselves but that they are a part and parcel of the development of society. And I know that they don’t necessarily have to own million-dollar companies for them to give back to society. The fact that they have made a name and have people who actually follow them is enough reason for them to give back. Here are some of them.
Boll and Branch are among the brands in the home and kitchen industry that has shocked the world as regards what they’re giving. They have dedicated 10% of their proceeds to helping to curb the spread of a coronavirus.
They are going to use these proceeds to provide beddings to emergency operations.
Actually, nobody expected that this company would do something, especially considering the fact that they are not such a big name in the shoemaking company as some others like Adidas, Puma, and Nike.
They distributed free shoes (Tuke Matcha Wool Runners) to healthcare workers who are obviously the superheroes of the year.
Another company in the shoemaking industry that has contributed greatly to the curbing of the coronavirus is Adidas. They have donated $3.2 million to the solidarity response fund for the coronavirus and still produce 18,000 face shields every week for healthcare professionals in the United States.
Lancer is a skin care provider and has donated 10% of their proceeds to helping the No Kids Hungry campaign. They have also slashed most of their products by 20% and these products are handed to you as long as you use the code GIVE-BACK.
This company deals in products that are used for cleansing. And they have donated scent-free soaps and several other cleansing agents to hospitals and airports.
Apple is one of the biggest companies in America and it may not be surprising to find them on the list. Apple donated 10 million masks to healthcare workers in America and another 10 million masks to the citizens.
It must be noted that no company is under any obligation whatsoever to assist and so it is still highly respected no matter how small the resource is.
