Making An Impact One Pretzel At A Time

Giving Tuesday is a worldwide generosity movement that has taken place on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving since 2012. With the goal of encouraging people to do good, Giving Tuesday has prompted people and organizations of all kinds to donate and give back to their communities in various ways. In 2021, Giving Tuesday raised a record $2.7 billion in the U.S. with over 35 million participants. The idea: everyone has something to give. 

We at Eastern Standard Provisions recognize our responsibility to give back to our community, and it is our pleasure to continue supporting a number of organizations close to our hearts. Although we’ve been able to provide ample donations to our collaborators thus far, we hope to expand our collaborations and charitable impact. We encourage everyone to get involved in Giving Tuesday, whether you’re donating, volunteering, or otherwise supporting your community. 

Our Collaborators:

St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® provides treatment for young people suffering from life-threatening diseases, as well as world-class medical research facilities. Beyond their reputation as superlative in pediatric cancer treatment, St. Jude’s has significantly contributed to the standard of treatments for sickle cell disease, neurological disorders, and infectious diseases. With over 120 translational research labs, St. Jude’s aims to further advance their treatments and research in hopes of securing a cure. 

So far this year, our St. Jude Gift of Hope Box has generated over $60,400 in donations to St. Jude’s, which will provide 40 days of chemotherapy for leukemia patients, or 6,000 meals for patients and families. Since our founding, Eastern Standard has been able to donate a total of over $500,000 to St. Jude’s with the help of our loyal customers. As we look forward to another year of continued support to St. Jude’s, we remind our customers to join in the spirit of giving (and pretzels).

Boston Children’s Hospital has been named America’s number one children’s hospital for nine years running. An exceedingly reputable organization, Boston Children’s has been providing advanced pediatric medical services and testing since 1869. As they face growing occupancy rates, Boston Children’s Hospital hopes to expand their Boston facilities to serve more members of the community, as well as add an ambulatory surgical center at their Needham location. 

In 2022, our Boston Children’s Hospital Care For Kids Box brought about impactful donations to the hospital. In total, our donations will provide five years (260 weeks) of patient-family housing for those who need to stay local during their child’s treatment, or 100 tablet computers to get children happily through their stays. In 2023, we hope to break our record of donations to Boston Children’s Hospital. Click here to shop the Boston Children’s Hospital Care For Kids Box and help us reach our goal! 



The American Cancer Society has spearheaded national cancer research as a front runner in terms of treatment, awareness, and prevention. Each year, the ACS secures treatment services and funding for over 1.4 million new patients and 14 million cancer survivors. Currently, the American Cancer Society is reaching new and exciting milestones in various types of cancer research, and hopes to augment their global cancer control work in low-income countries.

Last year, our American Cancer Society® Breast Cancer Awareness Box continued to raise funds for cancer treatment and research. These donations will provide housing and accommodations for patients and their families undergoing cancer treatment throughout the country. To join in the fight against breast cancer, click here to shop the American Cancer Society® Breast Cancer Awareness Box and we'll donate $10 of your purchase to the cause. 



In addition to the charity boxes featured above, we also offer the Jimmy Fund Strike Out Cancer Box, benefitting the Jimmy Fund and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and the Life Is Good® Kids Foundation “Sprinkle Good Vibes” Box, benefitting the Life Is Good® Kids Foundation. As institutions providing life-changing care in pediatric development, our collaborators have contributed enormously to the health and happiness in our communities.



To contribute to these charities, shop our collection of charity collaboration boxes with $10 of each gift box purchased going to these incredible organizations. Give back to your community and get your pretzels, too! 

This November 29th, remember to do your part in unleashing the power of radical generosity. Happy Giving Tuesday from Eastern Standard Provisions!
