The events of 2020 reminded us how precious life is and how much we need to lift each other up, listen to each other, learn from each other and love each other. It is our goal with the abbyrose Awareness designs to promote this message in a visible way as well as to provide monetary support to organizations working at the grassroots level to make our world a better place.
Each design from this line will benefit a specific charity and we invite you to learn more about the great work these organizations are doing. We also welcome your input on design ideas and organizations to include on future awareness designs! You may want to visit Charity Navigator for a well-researched database of charities that are making an impact.
We donate 100% of the profit from each abbyrose Awareness design to the designated charity on a quarterly basis. In 2020, our goal was to donate $1000 by the end of the year — and we crushed it it! Thanks to you, we contributed $1624 to support the work of many amazing organizations! Our 2021 goal was even higher, $1500, and we surpassed it again! One phone case at a time, we donated $1999 to the Awareness charities by the end of the year!
What else can we do but strive to go even higher?! Watch for new Awareness designs to be added to our collection, and help us to reach our 2022 goal of $2500 in donations by the end of the year! Thank you for helping us to spread awareness about these important issues!
Breast Cancer Alliance
The mission of Breast Cancer Alliance is to improve survival rates and quality of life for those impacted by breast cancer through better prevention, early detection, treatment and cure. To promote these goals, we invest in innovative research, breast surgery fellowships, regional education, dignified support and screening for the underserved.
Four types of grants are awarded annually:
- Exceptional Project Research
- Young Investigator Research
- Breast Surgery Fellowships
- Education and Outreach
We invite clinical doctors and research scientists whose primary focus is breast cancer research to apply for either the Exceptional Project or Young Investigator Research. Society of Surgical Oncology accredited institutions in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut may submit requests for funding for fellowships. We invite Directors of programs that are directly related to breast cancer services to apply for an Education and Outreach Grant. We do not solicit grant applications or restrict any breast cancer research topics from consideration.

Darkness to Light
Darkness to Light empowers adults to prevent, recognize, and react responsibly to child sexual abuse through awareness, education, and stigma reduction.
Our work is guided by the vision of a world free from child sexual abuse. We envision a world in which adults form prevention-oriented communities that protect the child’s right to a healthy childhood.
We believe that protecting children is an adult’s responsibility, and that through education and training adults will be empowered to act. Our trainings are the only evidence-informed, adult-focused child sexual abuse prevention trainings proven to increase knowledge and change behavior. Our work empowers adults and organizations to bring in child safety to their own communities.
One Tree Planted
As an environmental charity, we are dedicated to making it easier for individuals and businesses to give back to the environment, create a healthier climate, protect biodiversity and help reforestation efforts around the world. All by planting trees!
Started in 2014, we have more than doubled the number of trees planted year over year. Fast-forward to today, we now work with awesome reforestations partners in North America, South America, Asia, and Africa who help us get trees in the ground to restore forests after fires and floods, create jobs, build communities, and protect habitat for biodiversity.
In 2019, we were able to get more trees in the ground than ever before – 4 million!

Petco Love was founded in 1999, formalizing Petco’s longstanding commitment to animal welfare. Over the years, we’ve served as a leader and valued partner in animal welfare, always focusing on one thing: Creating a better world for animals and the people who love and need them. In April 2021, we took the next step in our lifesaving mission and adopted a new name, Petco Love. We will continue to lead the way every day to harness the power of love to make communities and pet families closer, stronger, and healthier–and create a future in which no pet is unnecessarily euthanized.
Petco Love (formerly Petco Foundation) invests in organizations that have the most impact. Through a decision model designed to evaluate and assess organizations alongside their peers, we empower those that are most productive and effective, and work with a relentless determination to succeed.
By donating in Petco store and on petco.com, adopting, volunteering and fostering your support makes it possible for us to celebrate 20 years of saving animal lives. Thank you for sharing our passion for animals and believing that together we can, and will, create a lifesaving nation.
Since 1999, we’ve invested millions in adoption and medical care programs, spay and neuter services, pet cancer research and numerous other lifesaving initiatives—always investing wisely in organizations with the most lifesaving impact. In partnership with animal welfare organizations and 1,500 Petco stores across the country, we help bring pets together with loving families every day.

COVID-19 Response Fund
The Center for Disaster Philanthropy (CDP) COVID-19 Response Fund is focusing on support for nonprofit organizations working directly to respond to the pandemic among vulnerable populations in order to help build their capacity to address the most pressing needs. These include social service organizations focused on supporting low-income households, small businesses, immigrants, refugees, Native Americans and Alaska Natives, older adults, people with disabilities, and other communities vulnerable to the physical health, mental health and economic impacts of the pandemic.
CDP is working closely with nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) to track both current and emergent needs. Focus areas include:
- Supporting healthcare and other frontline workers through provision and distribution of masks, gowns, gloves and other personal protective equipment (PPE) for essential staff, as well as the deployment of emergency medical teams where needed.
- Supporting quarantined and especially vulnerable individuals by lessening financial hardships for people who are quarantined and those for whom social distancing is not an option. Support also includes building the capacity of local food banks to respond to the mounting number of people who are food insecure.
- Supporting small businesses through emergency grants and mentoring programs to help owners sustain their businesses and to support the economy of vulnerable communities.
- Supporting hygiene promotion activities (WASH) and community-based care in areas with poor access to medical care to help limit the spread of COVID-19 and other infections.
CDP is responding rapidly and effectively, using contributions to the Fund to address these core issues, while constantly assessing needs. This allows CDP to be adaptive in our support.
As of June 2, 2020, nearly $10 million has been distributed to 41 organizations working in the U.S. and abroad.
