Giving Feels Good!

We Know How Great It Feels...

...to fall in love, to discover a new erogenous zone, and to come so hard you see stars. But you know what feels even better? Coming for a cause. And chances are when you buy a Babeland toy, you're doing just that.
For over 20 years, Babeland has contributed to non-profits and organizations devoted to social change through our fundraising partnerships and community donations program.
You might wonder how buying a sex toy can change the world. While we like to joke that we're making the world a better place one orgasm at a time, we do try to go one step further by raising awareness and funds for causes that make a difference to our collective well-being.

Because we have four retail stores and a website, our customers are not always aware of our philanthropic efforts, which is why we'd like to keep you updated on this page.

In the past, we have contributed over $200,000 to over 300 organizations.

 

How Are Recipients Chosen?

We choose our recipients based on a variety of factors, most notably with input from our founders, our staff, and our customers. Not surprisingly, we are most passionate about efforts that raise awareness around issues related to sexual health, education, and civil liberties. However, you can't enjoy a healthy sex life in a vacuum (at least most of us can't), which is why we also support organizations related to the health and prosperity of our bodies and our planet. Here are just a few of the organizations we have supported :

What’s Happening This Year?

A is For 20th Anniversary Fundraiser

Celebrate Babeland’s 20th anniversary by helping us raise money for women’s health and reproductive rights. We’ve partnered with A is For , an amazing organization founded by actress and activist Martha Plimpton, comedian and co-creator of The Daily Show, Lizz Winstead, and the bassist from Babes in Toyland (how amazing is that!), Maureen Herman, along with several other fierce feminists.

Until January 2014, when you purchase one of the following toys, 10% of your purchase goes to A is For. Thanks to our generous vendor sponsors, for pledging to donate half of the total raised for their toy.

Breast Cancer Awareness Fundraiser for YSC

Purchase one of our Pink October toys and we’ll donate 10% of the sale to the Young Survival Coalition, a non-profit helping young women living with breast cancer. Over a quarter of a million women under the age of 40 have breast cancer, so your purchase can make a difference—your contributions have raised over $15k for this great organization in the past.
