Sometimes Giving is Better than Receiving!

The same spirit that moves us to encourage and empower people in the realm of pleasure, inspires us to support non-profits and charities that provide sexual health and wellness services. For 40 years we have partnered with thousands of local and national non-profit organizations with sponsorships and donation partnerships.

We strive to be an agent for social change through the lenses of sexuality, diversity and alternative business practices. Both within our organization, and throughout the communities we serve and in which we live, Good Vibrations is committed to fostering respect, promoting supportive communication, providing access to educational resources and strongly advocating for women in leadership roles.

100% of your contribution at check-out goes directly to our GiVe partners. In addition, Good Vibrations will match a portion of proceeds.

In our changing cultural, social, and political climates, Good Vibrations is more compelled than ever to support a variety of organizations through in-kind and/or monetary donations. Through the GiVe program, Good Vibrations hopes to continue to highlight sex and body positivity, diversity, positive communication, and harm reduction. Everyone deserves the opportunity for information, products, resource, education, and support in exploring their bodies, desires, and sexualities to the fullest degree.

"I'm proud of the ways that our donation program matches our educational philosophy: we meet people where they are at! Whether it’s someone looking for a first butt plug without breaking the bank or wanting to support one of their favorite non-profits on a budget, we make sure our customers can do just that. Our average donation amount last quarter was under $4 which means, even when folks were making smaller donations, the entirety of donations from all our customers were able to make a substantial impact at the organizations we supported.” - Ruby Vail, GiVe Coordinator.

By donating 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 the contribution.

"Thank you, Good Vibrations! You provided 40 hours of rape crisis counselor training to 75 BARCC volunteers who support survivors, train care providers, and educate communities. Our volunteer program is a core element in our social change mission, with over 300 people donating their time annually.” - Boston Area Rape Crisis Center.

Good Vibrations: GiVe Donations Alameda County Food Bank
East Bay stores: SF Alameda County Food Bank

Our Food Bank was founded on the principle that food is a basic human right. However, hunger can’t be solved without addressing its root causes. We are setting a bold trajectory for the long-term work required to dismantle the systems that perpetuate poverty, including racism. And, we are pursuing groundbreaking solutions to not only end hunger, but to reach and improve the lives of more people than ever before.

Today, 1 in 5 Alameda County residents experiences hunger. This year, the Alameda County Community Food Bank will provide the equivalent of 29 million meals; more than half of which is farm-fresh produce.

Every $1 you donate provides $7 worth of food.

Good Vibrations: GiVe Donations Second Harvest Silicon Valley
Palo Alto store: Second Harvest Silicon Valley

Nutritious food is the foundation for a healthy, productive life. Hunger hurts because it keeps us from fully engaging in our lives and fulfilling our dreams.

Second Harvest is serving more people than ever before – an average of 260,000 families and seniors every month.
