December 9, 2022

As many of your customers are making their holiday lists & checking them twice, according to a recent global study, consumers are 4 to 6 times more likely to purchase, protect and champion purpose-driven companies. Thankfully, making an impact is easier than you think with our award-winning Give & Grow App on Shopify!

Our free app allows your business to start giving back in less than 5 minutes & is fully customizable to your needs. Simply choose your cause or fund, pick how you’d like to donate, and select your donation type. Pledge also provides an embed for e-commerce retailers to insert a mobile-optimized widget on any web page, with no disruption to your user experience!

To ensure you’re able to be as transparent as possible with your customers, we have made it super easy for you to access reporting and analysis features to track the progress of donations in real-time to the organizations directly through your Impact Hub. This allows your brand to gain valuable insights into their donations, boosts transparency & makes sharing the impact with your customers simple!

But don’t take our word for it, here are a few of the 5,000+ brands that utilize Give & Grow to power their impact in a variety of ways while increasing their overall LTV by over 40%.

1. Once Upon a Farm

The healthy children's snack company, founded by actress Jennifer Garner, has pledged to contribute 1 million meals through Save the Children by 2024 for children in communities experiencing food insecurity as part of their Million Meals Program.

In addition to offering customer donations at checkout & donating a portion of proceeds from a selection of their products, they have also donated a percentage of their profits. Since starting the program, nearly 170,000 meals have already been donated!

A great way to complement these efforts is through their display of a real-time Impact Calculator to show progress results & boost momentum - all seamlessly powered by Pledge.

2. Rhode Skin

The skincare brand created by model Hailey Bieber developed the "Futures Fund" to support 1,000 women and their families by 2023, partnering with 3 organizations that provide women, especially those of color, with resources to direct their own futures focusing on three pillars: women’s health, the future of work & guaranteed income for moms. For every sale made, Rhode provides a percentage of proceeds to go towards this fund!

3. Vessel

Starting on Zero Emissions Day this past September, Vessel launched a limited-time campaign with the Arbor Day Foundation to plant 5,000 trees by the end of 2022 to help contribute to the nonprofit's national reforestation efforts.

To accomplish their goal, Vessel makes a donation to plant one tree with any purchase over $49. They also offer the ability for customers to make an additional donation at checkout. To show the impact being made in real-time, they also display a customized impact calculator. So far, they’ve already planted 4,662 trees!


The street shoe-wear brand is on a mission to disrupt the fashion industry and its use of animal products, supporting issues & working with grassroots charities to reverse the tide of the declining wildlife population and protect the future of all biodiversity.

Through Pledge, LØCI is able to donate a percentage of all proceeds to sustainable causes! So far their impact has removed 1 million plastic bottles from our oceans.

5. Brixton

This brand does more than its famous classic brimmed hats & classic apparel! With our Give & Grow App, Brixton allows customers to round up at checkout or add a donation to support the Rollin From The Heart The Ian Poods Barry Foundation. This organization provides mentorships for at-risk and disadvantaged youth by encouraging a more, healthy, active, and positive lifestyle.

6. Malicious Co Candles

This candle company “isn't just about the sass and good smells.” After its founder lost a close friend to suicide, she was driven to do something for those who might be suffering & set on a mission to “illuminate their candle at a time.”

Their Warrior Collection donates a percentage of the proceeds to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) via Pledge. So far they’ve contributed $31,949! Learn more about their efforts to support those struggling with mental health & how they are giving back here.
