Happy International Pay It Forward Day! Yes, an international holiday totally worth celebrating. We decided to celebrate by sharing 5 of our favorite pay it forward companies. These world changers are paving the way for so many more entrepreneurs to create businesses that give back. Drumroll please…

The Giving Keys: You have probably heard of The Giving Keys due to their super cool key products and mission to employ people transitioning out of homelessness. Cool, right? Well, they continue to inspire us with new campaigns and products all of the time. And today is no different! We are taking part, and encourage you to take part, in their Pay it Forward Day campaign. The goal is to write an encouraging note to someone who needs it and pass along an envelope of notes so they can do the same! Follow along on the hashtag #BeTheKey on social media to see where all of this encouragement ends up!
Bloom & Give: The scarves, totes, and kitchen accessories at Bloom & Give are not only beautiful everyday pieces, but also hand-crafted by artisans in India. The kicker? 50% of the profits go back to educational programs in India for girls.
PURPOSE Jewelry: Every piece of this beautiful and delicate jewelry is created by a young woman formerly enslaved to sex trafficking. We love that PURPOSE works to provide freedom, employment, and purpose to women affected by this horrible crime.
FEED: We are all aware of the need for food worldwide and the widespread hunger. Well, FEED is doing something about it. This bag alone provides 50 meals for schoolchildren around the world. And it’s cute too!
The Honest Co.: Jessica Alba’s company gets a rap for clean and organic baby products. You may not know, however, that The Honest Co. donates to Baby2Baby with every purchase, where funds are used to distribute baby essentials and clothes to families in need. And that’s reason enough to stock up.
