We've never had a treat quite like Misaky Tokyo's candy gems, which come in delectable fruit and floral flavors and have a yummy gummy center, with a lightly crunchy coating. You can try some of their classic flavors, plus exclusive blood orange passionfruit Orange Sapphire and purple sweet potato orange cinnamon Purple Jasper gems, in their new 2022 Pride box, only available now! In addition to featuring a full rainbow of flavors celebrating every kind of love, 5% of sales this month will be donated to the Los Angeles LGBT Center.

We love Bobo's and their delicious and satisfying oat bars, but we also love that they're so involved in their communities. This month, they're selling limited-edition Dark Chocolate Almond + Sea Salt Oat Bars in cute rainbow packaging, and 100% of sales will go to their national partner PFLAG National, which provides support for LGBTQ+ people, as well as their families and friends, and to Colorado-based LGBTQ+ support organization The Center on Colfax.

This month, Chipotle have also been doing their part in support of Pride.For the first half of the month, they allowed customers to round up their order to the nearest dollar total to support LGBTQ+ suicide prevention organization The Trevor Project, and they've also partnered with Miley Cyrus's The Happy Hippie Foundation to fight injustices against queer and homeless youths and other vulnerable populations, proving $250k in free Chipotle to partner centers across the country. Buying Chipotle merch also supports The Trevor Project throughout the month, with a $10 donation from each item sold.
This year, Oreo partnered with PFLAG to create a Pride Pack of Oreos, which are covered in affirming messages from allies to remind people of all identities that they are valid. In addition to donating half a million dollars to PFLAG, Oreo also reminds us all to stay informed, always use people's correct pronouns and be an open, willing ally to marginalized communities.
