    5. Housing Works

    HIV/AIDS is by no means an exclusively LGBT issue, but gay and bisexual men are still the most at-risk community for contracting HIV. Enter Housing Works: an upscale thrift store chain whose proceeds go to providing housing and medical care for low-income people living with HIV and AIDS. Visit one of their shops if you're in NYC, or browse and bid on their most delicious discounted designer items online.

    6. Kiehl's

    In the same vein, Kiehl's, which sells indulgent bath and beauty products, has been a longtime supporter of amfAR. As of 2014, the company had donated $1,025,000 to the HIV/AIDS research organization.
