Crooked Chanter Company
Crooked Chanter Company is a new, small online apparel company based out of Connecticut, started by a Bagpiper and his wife. I am a retired Firefighter/Paramedic and Bagpiper with a Fire Department Emerald Society Band, as my wife and I traveled to Band events, we realized that there was not a lot of "swag" for those of us who love the Pipes & Drums "lifestyle," so Crooked Chanter was born. Aside from both working with Nurses in our professions, we have many family and friends who we admire and love that are Nurses as well. We wanted to come up with a lasting way to thank them all and be able to donate to a Foundation that supports them during their time of need. So we decided to design this shirt depicting the tenacity of those of you who put your life on the line to do the job without fanfare! We are so very happy to be able to donate 60% of the profits of this campaign to the American Nurses Foundation.
Solmate Socks Gives Back
As an eco-friendly, certified B Corporation™, giving back is at the core of who we are and what we do.

As a small token of our appreciation, we have launched the Solmate Socks Give Back Collection. A portion of the proceeds from each pair of socks will be donated to a corresponding non-profit that specializes in a field we see doing great work in their community.
In addition to monetary donations, our hope is also that this collection can shed some light on why these organizations are so important and how much value they bring to us. We truly believe that if we all find a way to give back, together we can make a huge impact in this world and ultimately change someone's life, one foot at a time.
Treasured ThredZz - Unity ThredZz
It happened. You tested positive for Covid. Now you have to quarantine from your loved ones, and you can’t see your friends. Hopefully, that’s the worst of it. What if it isn’t?
What if you have to go to the hospital because the fever won’t break or you can’t breathe? Now, no one can see you—no one but the Dr’s and the nurses. You didn’t choose to be in this situation, but some people did, the nurses.
They are indeed on the front lines of this pandemic. They are choosing to be away from their family and friends, putting themselves in harm’s way to help you and everyone else. They deserve so much.
Unity ThredZz by Treasure ThredZz is one small way we can thank them.
It is no coincidence that this Sterling Silver Unity charm looks like two people coming together in a warm embrace. We designed it to remind us that soon we will be together again specifically.
With any purchase of a Unity ThredZz, 10% of the total sale is donated to the American Nurses Foundation
With this gift, you will give love and be loved. Together we ThredZz
