30% of sale proceeds from the item during the month of June will go to GLSEN, a New York-based organization founded by teachers. The group does a variety of work for LGBTQ+ rights in K-12 schools, including researching and advocating for "comprehensive policies designed to protect LGBTQ students as well as students of marginalized identities."

IKEA will donate up to $50,000 from sales — and if you don't have a speaker, there are other ways to support. You can also grab a Storstomma bag in a small or large size. The retailer says that "since 2019, the Storstomma bag has been sold in more than 26 countries, with a portion of proceeds going directly to local LGBTQ+ organizations fighting for equality."

Cheers to making your IKEA gear a little more proud.
