Shopping for good

I can't yet go the route of donating in someone's name and sending a card--though I might do that for my dad and stepmom. I can, however, shop in ways that do someone some good. I also plan to donate some time or goods to some organization around here. Here are some of the places I found so far:

  • Buy for Charity--up to 35% of your purchase is donated to the cause of your choice

  • xgive.com--40% of the proceeds go to selected charities

  • World of Good--where you can buy fair trade products designed by artisans from around the world.

  • Oxfam America--shop at partner stores, find a list of more fair trade stores, or donate in someone's name
