It’s Black Friday but there is plenty of charitable activity going on as well as heavy discounting and frenetic shopping. Here is a selection of some of the good being done today by a range of companies.
Trying new and exciting things to push back against the whole….Black Friday narrative! Pay 10% more, and excess goes to charity – read all about what I'm doing here —> "give back friday" at worthwhyle https://t.co/3anZC8B9Xg #givebackfriday pic.twitter.com/7H6nPQuC2J

Worthwhyle, which sells ethically produced cruelty-free goods is taking a different tack to Black Friday this year. It is asking people to pay 10% more, and the excess will go to charity. The charity (or charities) has yet to be chosen, and is being left to its Instagram followers.

Black Friday planning has left us torn between sharing the love with our chosen charity @bowelcanceruk and sharing the love with our lovely followers and customers. So here’s the plan: we’re doing both. 💫 For the whole of Thursday we’re giving our customers 25 percent off EVERYTHING – just enter the discount code TWENTYFIVE at checkout. This will only last for one day and ends at midnight on Thursday. We’ve never done this before – as a small business we can’t afford to discount in the same way that the high street does but we’re truly grateful to all of you for your support over the past year and wanted to do this as a big THANK YOU! 💫 On Black Friday we will be giving 💯 percent of our profit on all sales to @bowelcanceruk – it’s a charity that we support throughout the year but we want to do something special for them over Christmas. ❤️
Love Sweat and Tees gave customers 25% off everything on Thursday, and on Black Friday itself is giving 100% of its profits to Bowel Cancer UK, which it also supports throughout the year by giving it 5% of its profits.
