When we started looking for a way to help during this crisis, we asked Ajay for advice. He connected us with Bhoomika Trust, which provides much-needed ventilators and oxygen generators to hospitals.

We’ll be donating $5,000 in support of their mission — and if you make a donation of $15 or more, take a screenshot of your receipt and send it to email@example.com for a one-time-use 25% off code on your next order. To learn more and donate, head here.
If there’s one thing we’ve learned during this pandemic, it’s that we all need each other — our health and wellbeing are inextricably intertwined. Let’s make a difference, and be #BetterTogether.
