Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

In the hours following Tuesday’s election, the millions of Americans who did not wish to see Donald Trump take office have protested, cried, and sought comfort in friends, family, coworkers, and strangers. They’ve been working out the reality of our political situation in ways that are as individual as their identities, because the reality of a Trump presidency means something different for everyone and their personal safety.

Donating to organizations that benefit groups and causes under threat by Trump and his supporters is a good and comparatively straightforward thing to do right now. In light of that, the New York-based brand Kaelen is donating 100 percent of all proceeds from items purchased on its website to 14 organizations — each customer gets to pick where his or her money goes.

Kaelen’s campaign starts tonight at midnight and runs for a full week through Friday, November 18th. To motivate shoppers, everything is 75 percent off for both current and past seasons, and we’d be remiss not to note that there are some really fantastic floral coats, silk lamé pleated skirts, and bell sleeve tops available.

The list of groups Kaelen shoppers can choose from, with their corresponding promo codes, include:

Planned Parenthood (planned parenthood)

American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU)

National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP)

Black Lives Matter (blacklivesmatter)

NAACP Legal Defense Fund (NAACPLDF)

Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC)

Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR)

Human Rights Campaign (HRC)

National Immigration Law Center (NILC)

Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network (RAINN)

Trevor Project (trevorproject)

Greenpeace (greenpeace)

The Nature Conservancy (nature)

Everytown for Gun Safety (everytown)
