This season, we’re thankful for the laudable work that so many charities do all year round. To show our support, we’re donating 5% of sales every day from December 2-December 8 to one of seven worthy causes for 7 Days Of Giving.

Wade's World FoundationDwyane Wade has made it a point to ensure that his life is “bigger than basketball.” And with the Wade’s World Foundation, he does just that. The foundation’s community outreach programs in underserved communities in Chicago, Milwaukee and South Florida back literacy initiatives, provide youth basketball clinics and promote involved fatherhood. Wade raised $26,000 for the foundation this year with two sales on The RealReal featuring pieces from his fashionable wardrobe, and we’re proud to add to that by contributing to Wade’s World.
