( ENSPIRE Community Spotlight ) Global Angel is a platform designed to offer high-quality goods that give back to the world

When Amber Dawn Shopay established the lifestyle brand Global Angel in 2018, her purpose was to fulfill her desire to give back. She became inspired while on a trip to Mexico with her father, after meeting a group of young kids playing soccer in a dirt field. They told her their greatest wish was to have grass on which to play. Amber couldn’t get the kids out of her mind and this set into motion a series of ideas about how to raise both money and awareness, on a local and global level. It was quite simple – every area of the world has a need…and produces a product. What if one could benefit the other? Decades later, she was fulfilling her dream of helping those who need it most.
The happy result became Global Angel, a platform designed to offer high-quality goods that give back to the world, in just the way you choose. You pick the product; you pick the cause because it’s more than just an online shopping destination. The platform is a far-reaching, communal effort of compassion. Global Angel has streamlined the giving process by creating a platform that allows you to choose how you want to give back. With a thoughtfully curated list of over 20 charities from around the world — from the American Cancer Society to the Wounded Warrior Project— customers will know that they too are making a difference in someone’s life.
Shopay’s altruism is the ethos and mission behind the brand. Creating Global Angel right after the fires of Malibu – she helped create funds for rebuilding the community. After the wildfires in Southern California last year the brand’s top three donation recipients have been the California Wildlife Center, Eastwood Ranch, and Malibu Foundation, all of which work tirelessly with the local communities to offer a lending hand where needed. This platform has given people the power and inspiration to affect positive change globally.
Through the purchase of Global Angel products, shoppers can affect change together leaving a positive and lasting impression in their life path. Sales from Global Angel allow customers to pay it forward on both a local and global level. With every purchase, Global Angel donates to the charity of the shopper’s choice. Global Angel products are proudly manufactured in California, with a wide collection of assorted apparel and activewear, including t-shirts, sweatshirts, and hats. Global Angel has future plans for the philanthropic, active clothing line including category expansions, eco-friendly skincare, and some great new styles coming out for spring.
