Following the madness of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, a new holiday has taken off in recent years following the biggest shopping days with a focus on giving back to the community, rather than on hunting for deals. 

On Giving Tuesday (the day following Cyber Monday), many brands are opting to raise awareness for different causes by donating a portion of sales or highlighting special charitable collaborations. Many charities are also doubling any donations made today, so that every charitable donation does even more good.

Ahead, scroll through for 10 brands that are making a difference today, and helping shoppers give back with every purchase.
