While the majority of the world continues to live in a state of fear and uncertainty this crisis is also is providing opportunities for us to unify. With no foolproof cure in sight we are seeing how long goodwill can really go.

Over the last couple of weeks several big name brands have stepped up in an effort to combat the spread of COVID-19. Even though the number of cases continues to escalate so does the theme of corporate responsibility. The fashion industry specifically have truly pivoted their day to day operations to better serve the human race.

According to ongoing reports medical facilities across the world do not have the supplies needed to outfit staff members that are tending to those that have contracted Coronavirus or are just facing other medical issues. As spotted on BBC this deficit has been recognized by apparel brands throughout the globe and many have done right thing.

Here are some brands offering some noteworthy support for the betterment of the human race. Keep this mind when things are more stable (hopefully sooner than later) and ya’ll are spending those stimulus checks.

We Are All in This Together. Gucci stands with its global community to fight the #Covid19 pandemic by making two separate donations to crowdfunding campaigns. Locally, in Italy where the company is based, a 1 million euros donation to the Italian Civil Protection Department #DipartimentoProtezioneCivile in partnership with @intesasanpaolo’s #ForFunding platform to reinforce Italy’s health services and to source new ICU beds. Globally, Gucci donated 1 million euros to the United Nations Foundation’s Covid-19 Solidarity Response Fund in support of the World Health Organization @who through Facebook’s US$10 million Matching Fundraiser to monitor and collect data on the spread of the virus to strengthen ICUs across the world, supply protection equipment to health personnel and fast-track the creation of vaccines and therapies. The initiatives are captured in an original illustration gifted by Rome-based artist @mp5art, a person who holds their hand on their heart a message of human solidarity. “Gucci has created a world, open and free: a Gucci global community. We ask all of you to be the changemakers in this crisis, to stand together with us in the fight against the Coronavirus. We are all in this together,” say @alessandro_michele, Creative Director of Gucci, and #MarcoBizzarri, President and CEO of Gucci.
