I have seen that the most companies prefer to help with money some NPO´s which have volunteers or employees specialized in some social action. That´s because to keep employees only for that is more expensive and less effective than to contract an Organization that works specifically with social cares.

Business ethic and corporate social responsibilities are strongly encouraged in most countries. Nowadays, companies recognize their responsibilities toward the society they operate in, you can easily notice how they elaborate their contributions to the society in their companies' websites and in their annual report. This is a kind of healthy culture and we should keep it up!  

I completely agree with the comment of Jovanzapata45.
Actually the major brands who indeed violate the business ethics all the time.
I work in textile manufacturing business and had many experiences of social responsibility implementations. In most of the cases the brands demand one of their suppliers to set up a manufacturing facility with all legal and internationally accepted worker rights are conducted. In reality only a symbolic percentage of whole production quantity are manufactured in that showcase unit. The rest are being produced in other places out of sight.
