Can I really make an impact?
Yes! The dollars we all spend are the world's most powerful force for change.
Each day—each day!—American consumers spend more than $350 billion on goods and services. This is almost the same amount as the total donated to all U.S. charities in an entire year. If even a fraction of the dollars we spend also reduce poverty, protect the environment, and create a better world, the impact is enormous.
Plus, doesn’t it just feel better to know that your money is supporting the things you believe in?

On July 9th, 2020, Goya’s CEO, Robert Unanue,
appeared in the White House Rose Garden and praised Trump. He said that “We are all truly blessed...to have a leader like President Trump who is a builder." After hearing the call to #BoycottGoya, we've made the decision to include them on this list. CNN reports that Robert Unanue has donated to Republicans in recent years, including to the Republican National Committee. Robert’s brother, who is Goya’s EVP, gave $100,000 to the anti-abortion National Right to Life Victory fund back in 2012 and other Unanue family members who are shareholders of Goya have given thousands of dollars to mostly Republican candidates and politicians, including Trump.
