Opportunities to pay it forward are all around us, particularly during the holidays ('tis the season of giving, after all). But amid attending events with fancy dress codes, creating Insta-worthy itineraries for sunny-weather getaways, and spending every spare minute gift shopping for everyone from our best pals to our favorite baristas, it's easy to get caught up in ourselves this time of year and overlook those who are less fortunate. Happily, there are brands out there like Treasure & Bond (ICYMI: every purchase from the exclusive-to-Nordstrom line supports programs that empower young people) that help you balance out all that buying by doing some good — which we can 100% get behind.
Inspired by T&B's commitment to giving back, we tapped a group of do-gooders at R29 HQ to share what they're doing this season to make others feel extra special. Between volunteering their time, donating their coats (or hard-earned cash), and handing out hot food, their self-effacing acts will give you the warm and fuzzies — and inspire you to do whatever you can to make a difference. Click through to learn about their admirable deeds, plus shop their most-loved pieces from Treasure & Bond's latest collection (think statement knits, classic ankle booties, and everything in between), too. Tend to experience buyer's remorse? Not gonna happen this time around.
