Bid on a Celebrity Valentine’s Day Date

Present an Ethical Diamond Engagement Ring
Win your girlfriend’s heart and protect the environment when you purchase a conflict-free engagement ring to slide on her finger this Valentine’s Day. Brilliant Earth believes that high-quality, beautiful jewelry should not come at a great human or environmental cost. These stunning rings are exquisitely crafted with recycled precious metals of gold and platinum and ethically sourced gemstones. Each conflict-free diamond is hand-selected by professional gemologists for exceptional brilliance and value.
Be a Volunteer, Not a Valentine
This Valentine’s Day, more people might be asking the question, “Will you be my … volunteer?” Why not pass on the good ‘ol act of love to others? Instead of going out for a romantic dinner on February 14th, make a date to volunteer at a local organization or nonprofit event to show how much you love your community. Sign up on Volunteer Match to discover what organizations in your local area are looking for volunteers and helpers for all kinds of events and fundraisers.
Write a Love Letter to Your Favorite Organization
A romantic letter doesn’t have to be given to your true love on Valentine’s Day. Think out of the box by sending a love letter to your favorite organization or nonprofit. Tell them why you love what they are doing, how they are positively affecting people and what else they can do to help out their cause even more. If you’re feeling extra thoughtful, add a donation into the envelope sealed with a kiss!
