Gifts That Give Back: Where To Shop For Good

 

giftsheader

Thanks to the Internet, it’s never been easier to give a side of do-gooding with your perfectly-picked present. Shop at one of these sites and make your holiday cheer spread even further:

Found Animals’ AdFoundAnimalsLogoopt & Shop store brings together animal rescue, retail, and philanthropy. Proceeds from every single purchase made go towards supporting the health and happiness of shelter pets, and with tons of products for all the dogs and cats in your life, it’s a one-stop shop for your whole list of furry friends. AdoptAndShop.org

The vision of iGive is simple: Create a place where consumers can quickly and easily use their purchasing power to benefit their favorite charities. Select from over 1,500 retailers and 36,000 causes (if your cause isn’t listed, you can add it for free), shop for things you’d buy anyway—like computers and clothes—and voila, a percentage of your purchase goes towards charity. It’s a foolproof way to make a difference. iGive.com

Like iGive, Amazon Smile lets you donate a percentage of your purchase costs towards a charity of your choosing every time you shop. It applies to all Amazon products, including e-books. Make it your default Amazon shopping page year-round and always shop for good. Smile.Amazon.com

Shop Heifer International’s Gift Catalog and help people around the globe receive the training, support, supplies, and empowerment to become self-reliant. Instead of giving your loved ones physical presents, consider donating a goat in their honor, or a stove, or a small business training program to a woman in Haiti. Spend as much or as little as you can, HeiferInternationalknowing that every dollar goes towards making the world a better place. Heifer.org

Give the gift of nature. The Nature Conservancy is a great choice for anyone one your list who loves wild animals. Gifts range from $25 to protect a rhino in Africa to $160 to protect the endangered Yunnan golden monkey in the remote forests of southwestern China. For $50 you can adopt an acre of land in places like Costa Rica, Australia, or the Northern Rockies. Nature.org

Check out the The Animal Rescue Site Store—a subset of GreaterGood.org—and shop a huge range of gifts for animals and animal-lovers. A portion of proceeds from every single purchased product helps fund food (at least 14 bowls per purchase) and care for rescued animals. TheAnimalRescueSite.GreaterGood.com
