The Swedish retail giant, H&M, has donated around US $ 500,000 to various organisations that are fighting against racism including NAACP, ACLU and Color of Change.
The recent killing of George Floyd in Minnesota has sparked protests all around the world including Paris and London. The current protests have resulted in many arrests which may require money to seek bail.
Donating to such organisations has helped solidify H&M’s position as a global retailer and shows that they care about people and civil rights.
In their Instagram post which had ‘Let’s change’ as the words on a white background, the caption read ‘We believe in equal rights for everyone. We stand with and support the Black community – today and every day’ with the hashtag #blacklivesmatter.
