As November comes to a close we want to share a spotlight on Giving Tuesday and encourage the PuffCuff fam to support a cause close to their heart today. Donating your time through volunteering! Or financially supporting an organization that aligns with your values. For this giving Tuesday we will be donating $1 of every order from this month to the Sayers Center for African American Adoption which is currently $1,900 as of the publishing of this blog article.
Over the last 8 years, PuffCuff has partnered and donated to a variety of organizations that work to protect the civil rights of African Americans, provide shelter for the homeless, school supplies for children, and more. PLUS we are proud to have partnered with Tea Drops and Frères Branchiaux for our Small Biz Collab Subscription Box, who also support some amazing causes! Tea Drops works with The Thirst Project to solve the global fresh drinking water crisis and Frères Branchiaux donates 10% of their profits to homeless shelters nationwide.

The Cradle has helped place more than 15,000 children into permanent, loving homes, and provide lifelong support for all who are touched by adoption -- birthparents, adopted persons, and adoptive parents. The Cradle is the only adoption agency in the country with an on-site nursery. It's a safe, neutral place for infants to stay while their parents take the time they need to decide if adoption will be the plan for this child. The nursery also enables The Cradle to place infants whose special medical needs may mean that it takes a bit longer to find them a home that is prepared to help them thrive. We are committed to finding a loving home for every child entrusted to our care.
Fulton County and the Atlanta school system come together to host the Back To School Bash to distribute backpacks and school supplies to Atlanta Public School students. This past year the Back To School Bash handed out around 6,000 backpacks filled with school supplies, face masks, and boxes of food to parents and students facing hardship during the pandemic.
The Our House is on a mission to end the cycle of homelessness for families. They provide shelter for families experiencing homelessness to live and education for children experiencing homelessness to thrive. Their interrelated programs address the root causes of homelessness and ensure every family that leaves Our House has the tools needed to achieve lasting self-sufficiency.
Founded by Colin Kaepernick, the Know Your Rights Camp’s mission is to advance the liberation and well-being of Black and Brown communities through education, self-empowerment, mass-mobilization, and the creation of new systems that elevate the next generation of change leaders.
Founded in 1996, the African American Policy Forum connects academics, activists, and policy-makers to promote efforts to dismantle structural inequalities. They work to promote the framework and strategies that address a vision of racial justice that embraces the intersections of race, gender, class, and the array of barriers that disempower those who are marginalized in society.
With the ultimate goal to end the unjust use of authority to injure, arrest, convict, and sentence, the Grassroots Law Project works to hold powerful actors within our government accountable while advocating for deep structural change. This organization works to bring cases to the attention of national agencies and media that would otherwise be overlooked.
