The Good Vibrations GiVe Program Supports Our Regional Organizations

We’ve always been involved with non-profit agencies and other organizations that help our communities. One way we do that is through our GiVe program. We donate products, advertising and sponsorship for fundraisers, along with a percentage of retail sales, we’ve provided much needed support for women’s shelters, HIV/AIDS research, art programs, LGBT benefits, breast cancer awareness and much more. Unlike many other companies, we do not take any administrative fees or charges, and fully donate 100% of your contribution to the organization.

The same spirit that moves us to encourage and empower people in the realm of pleasure inspires us to contribute where we can to make the world a better place. We’re proud to partner with La Casa de las Madres of San Francisco, AIDS Project of the East Bay in Berkeley, ACCESS Women’s Health Justice in Oakland, and Our Bodies Ourselves in Brookline. You can donate in any of our stores or through our website. And if you’d like a little more information about these amazing organizations, here you go:

  • ACCESS Women’s Health Justice in Oakland removes barriers and builds the power of women to achieve reproductive justice. ACCESS was founded in 1993 by clinic escorts who witnessed the many barriers women were facing “ especially young or poor women “ to actually obtain an abortion. The vision for ACCESS was not only to provide information and practical support on all aspects of reproductive health, but to build a community actively working to meet the real needs of women. We combine direct services, community education, and policy advocacy to promote real reproductive options and access to quality health care for California women. (accesswhj.org)
  • Our Bodies Ourselves (OBOS) is a nonprofit, public interest women’s health education, advocacy and consulting organization. Beginning in the early 1970s with the publication of its landmark book, “Our Bodies, Ourselves,” OBOS has facilitated the publication and in-country use of women’s health materials in more than 25 languages. The ninth U.S. edition of “Our Bodies, Ourselves” was selected by Library Journal as one of the Best Books of 2011. OBOS continues to inspire a women’s health movement, providing honest and accurate information from a feminist and consumer perspective. (ourbodiesourselves.org)
