Thanks to Bill in New York for sending me information on a fun tool that might help get your holiday shopping done and give a little bit back to your favorite charities.
We-Care (http://www.we-care.com/) is a collection of 700+ merchants. When you buy products from them through this site a portion of your purchase will go to the charity of your choice. You can do a search for your charity; if they aren’t listed, you can list them. There is even a page of coupons to get good deals.
If you are a nonprofit you can go and list yourself easily too – for no charge. You will get listed on the site and you’ll get a full, co-branded mall of your own with your colors, message, logo, and a unique URL. You even get some help with marketing tools.
Thanks to Jan in Wisconsin for sending me info on GoodSearch.com. It is a search engine that donates half its advertising revenue, about a penny per search, to the charities it designates
So there it is; it’s pretty simple. With any luck it will save you a little time and help your favorite nonprofits.
