Help as you shop: brands donating proceeds to support coronavirus relief efforts

In the wake of the current coronavirus pandemic, numerous brands have found inventive, generous ways of giving back.

Huge fashion houses such as Burberry and Dior have started production of protective gowns and masks, meanwhile, beauty brands including L'Occitane, Boots and 111SKIN have sent much-needed toiletries, hand cream and sanitiser to NHS staff.

Numerous other fashion and beauty brands have also given customers a way to help the coronavirus cause from home by donating part of their profits from each sale to a charity currently supporting front-line staff and those negatively impacted by the crisis - such as food banks.

From Kim Kardashian’s shapewear brand, Skims, donating 20% of the net profits from its Cotton Collection to Baby2Baby’s, to pre-loved website Vestiaire Collective partnering with celebrities including Kate Moss to auction items from their wardrobes for local charities.

Here’s a round-up of brands that are using their platforms and profits, to give to those in need during the coronavirus outbreak.
