Giving Tuesday

Giving Tuesday

Every day is giving Tuesday here at Lingua Franca. We are proud and honored to announce that with your help, we have donated almost $350k this year to charities. You can view the full list here. Giving back feels good. It makes us feel less helpless in a world that seems crazier by the minute.  If you're looking for gift ideas that give back this holiday season, check out some of our favorite ideas below. What's your cause?

Blessed be the Refugees

When we’re feeling helpless and hopeless, we stitch.  I’ve been feeling so depressed about what’s happening at our border. This seemed like a good stress reliever. Email us to custom. Show the world that you’re empathetic to the plight of these people in need. Each order we will send $100 to @fams2gether 

Empowerpuff Sweaters

We’re celebrating The Powerpuff Girls and 20 years of girl power to bring you these fab EMPOWERPUFF sweaters so you can channel your inner Powerpuff Girl while you're out saving the world! Each sweater sends $100 to the Lower East Side Girls Club. 

Resistance Revival Chorus

We are thrilled and honored to support the Resistance Revival Chorus and the Alliance for Quality Education. We collaborated with chorus members to feature lyrics from their favorite songs. Read more about these amazing women here.

California Love

The fires that recently raged in California were the deadliest and largest on record. For many, the devastation is just beginning. Email us to custom order any "california love" or "california dreaming" sweater and let us know which organization to send $100 to help with rebuilding efforts. 

Bold & Brave

Our Bold & Brave collaboration with Senator Kirsten Gillibrand pairs her words with artist Maira Kalman's glorious painted portraits of early women's rights activists. Each sweater purchase will come with a complimentary book and $100 will be donated to First Book.

In The Groove

We partnered with In the Groove - a lifestyle destination created for age-defying women. Check out more about our collab and get to know some amazing friends over here. Any sweater from our collection with In The Groove will send $100 to The Women’s Alzheimer’s Movement.

Live Well Give Well

We partnered with Christie’s to create custom cashmere sweaters and travel sets for their Peggy and David Rockefeller Collection auction. In line with the philanthropic spirit of the Rockefellers, 100% of proceeds from each item sold will benefit the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA).

Every Mother Counts

Every Mother Counts (EMC) is dedicated to making pregnancy and childbirth safe for every mother, everywhere. Check out our series of three sweaters that give back to the cause here

Resistance Sweaters

Finally, there's more in our shop to browse through, and almost every single sweater comes with a cause. There's something for everyone, and if it's not there, just email us to custom order a "give a damn" sweater and send $100 to ANY charity you'd like!
