Talk about shopping for a good cause: For the holidays, West Elm launched a give back shop that features products from local makers and supports racial equality. It includes all sorts of items from vibrant pillows to abstract vases. If you’re on the hunt for a few presents and want to give back in the process, you’ll definitely want to browse this selection.

Now through December 1, half of all proceeds from West Elm’s give back shop will go to partner organizations that support racial equality: the 15 Percent Pledge, the NAACP, the Jackie Robinson Foundation, and The National Urban League. On December 1 (aka Giving Tuesday), 100 percent of the sales made will be donated to those organizations. If you can wait that long, assuming nothing sells out, you might as well shoot for then as your buying day!

The shop features products from a range of local makers and Black-owned businesses. You’ll find vibrant, handwoven fabrics on pillows from Bolé Road Textiles. Ceramic Meltdown offers colorful vases with an abstract design and glaze application. There’s even a playing card game by Actually Curious that aims to bring people together. Not to mention, there are many blankets, baskets, door mats, art prints, tote bags, and candle holders to choose from. Honestly, it’d be hard to not find something to buy from this collaboration and give to someone on your holiday shopping list. You can check out the full product selection here. Happy shopping!
