We've interviewed experts and found the best options to help you cope during this uncertain time. Find all of our coronavirus-related coverage here, and let us know your thoughts here.

As the coronavirus spreads across the globe, many are stuck at home wondering how they can help. With businesses closing, and millions of Americans filing for unemployment, it's hard to know where to go. So during these stressful times, it's nice to know that certain companies are helping their workers and the ongoing relief efforts.

Plenty of businesses like Patagonia, Apple and Nike promised to pay their employees while physical stores are closed, and even more announced donations or the diversion of resources to help fight coronavirus. Apple donated $15 million, Gap is making masks and gowns for health care workers, Headspace has free meditation courses for employers and its employees and Rosetta Stone is giving three months of free language learning to all elementary, middle and high school students worldwide.

The list goes on and on of companies helping out, from L'Occitane making hand sanitizer, Uniqlo's parent company enlisting manufacturers to make masks and Lucky Brand donating clothes and sanitary kits to LA-based community partners.

If you want to help, but you're not sure how, there are plenty of companies that put the power in your hands. While you can always donate to local food banks or charities, we've found a few brands that combine giving and shopping by donating proceeds to relief efforts. So whether you need shoes, clothes, a phone cleaner or even a massage gun, consider checking out some of our favorite brands that are helping coronavirus relief efforts.
