If you’re looking to treat yourself, why not kill two birds with one stone? Dao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osborne of Public School, along with other fashion entrepreneurs like Andrew Rosen, Ben Fischman, and Jens Grede, joined forces to create flash sale event called BestKeptSecret. And all the proceeds are going to two great causes.

Although the state of the fashion industry seems bleak, BestKeptSecret hopes to help brands, as well as address these unprecedented times, by generating over $1 million in charitable donations for two organizations.

The first, Baby2Baby, provides children living in poverty with basic necessities like diapers, clothing, food, and toiletries. This year, Baby2Baby will provide these critical items and more to nearly 1 million of the most vulnerable children across the country impacted by the pandemic. The second, Know Your Rights Camp, was founded by Colin Kaepernick to “advance the liberation and well-being of Black and Brown communities through education, self-empowerment, mass-mobilization, and the creation of new systems that elevate the next generation of change leaders.”

The flash sale features over 35 brands including Rag & Bone, Rosie Assoulin, Frame, Mansur Gavriel, Jason Wu, Alice + Olivia, R13 and many more with prices discounted up to 80 percent off. It’ll run from August 11–15, but if you’re eager to get in on the action, you can create a profile on the site starting today, which grants free admission to the sale. You can also purchase $25 VIP Donor ticket, which allows early access at 6 p.m. ET on August 10. Sign up here.
