It is this time of the year, where we all join our forces for the better good of the community, because it is a month that gives a spiritual relief, and a great sense of wanting to do what is better for others.

Now, in case you were wondering how you can give back this Ramadan, the following is a list of brands who are partnering with local charitable organizations, to help you make the best out of this Holy month.

1- Benefit Cosmetics x Al Jalila Foundation

For every purchase of their limited-edition ‘Days of Our Lights‘ set, Benefit will give part of the profit to Al Jalila Foundation in the UAE. In doing so, you will be helping the cosmetics company empower women and girls locally in the UAE.

Once again, for the second year in a row, McDonald’s UAE has joined forces with Emirates Red Crescent and launched its Ramadan Books campaign. If you’re wondering how to contribute, well it’s very simple, all you have to do is purchase one of the books available at McDonald’s across the UAE for only Dhs5!

Profit will go to Emirates Red Crescent, which aims this year at reinvesting the earnings into local programmes to bring about community-wide improvements.

Just last year, McDonald’s UAE’s Ramadan Books campaign was able to generate a whopping AED320,000 through the sales of more than 60,000 books, all of which was donated to Emirates Red Crescent.

“At McDonald’s UAE we believe that giving back to those less fortunate and the spirit of generosity should not be limited to a special time period – it’s an ongoing responsibility that we embrace, and are constantly looking for ways to bring about a positive change to the lives of those less fortunate all year round. I am confident that the Ramadan Books campaign, will not only deliver positivity to children, but also bring great joy to the lives of the underprivileged,” said Rafic Fakih, managing director and partner at McDonald’s UAE.

5- Dumyé

In purchasing a handmade doll from Dumyé, the UAE-based enterprise will gift another to an orphan in need. It is a simple gesture, one that will ensure that an orphan from the region will get to have a handcrafted gift for Eid.
