I just found the perfect seasonal discovery for us online holiday shoppers: iGive.
How it works: you search for a store you at which you want to shop and then once you make your purchase, the store donates a percentage of their profits to the cause of your choice (and there are a lot of choices from animal rescue to schools to the rainforest). How marvelous is that?!
It doesn't work with Etsy, unfortunately, but it even works with Ebay (Ebay gives up a portion of their cut). The hard part is remembering not just to go directly to Amazon or L'Occitane without first visiting through the site. But I'm sure that once I get in the habit, I'll be racking up donations in no time. So for all my non-Etsy purchases this holiday season, I'm going to try to shop through iGive.
Saving tigers while finding that ideal gift? I'm in!
