Charity Shopping

  • Check out a new online shopping mall that donates a portion of it's profits to charitable causes such as hunger relief, protection of environment, disaster relief, etc. Everytime you shop there, money goes to charity, plus they have discounts for visitors. There are also a couple other similar sites out there... I'm not sure their URL but i'll post again when I remember.

  • Isn't this section supposed to be for philanthropy related shopping? I don't see how any of these messages, aside from my post (first one), will benefit people, or demonstrate "people in action."

    Several posts not related to the topics of the People in Action web guide (solidarity, etc.) have been deleted.

  • Hi/Happy Thanksgiving, Folks!

    "Several years ago I decided to undertake an experiment in awareness and empathy. I made a vow to consistently donate 10% of my income to help end suffering in this world." -D Charneco

    What if everyone did this? Mathematically. Picture the aid delivered through intricate branching networks as in the nervous, cirulatory, and respiratory systems. Where there is suffering, the body responds...each cell contributing nourishment... Could this be a simple solution to Buckminister Fuller's challenge: “To make the world work for 100% of humanity in the shortest possible time through spontaneous cooperation without ecological offense or the disadvantage of anyone.” ?

    We invite you to brainstorm; share your ideas and opinions on an active movement;experiment in Micro Philanthropy and Conventional; Digital Networking.


    The 10% Club.

    The link is a discussion and interactive workspace group within the 'Omidyar Network' (founded by Pierre Omidyar- the originator of eBay).

    Issues currently being explored are donor fatigue, the connecting of endorphin release to giving, the power of digital technology in promoting causes...

    Hope to see you there!

  • Hi there,

    I was wondering if you could add our charity shopping site to your guide - we've been running in the UK on a purely voluntary basis (not for profit or pocket money) since 2003 and have raised tens of thousands of dollars for charity:

    Thanks very much!

  • is a free service, allowing you to turn your everyday online purchases into donations for your favorite causes. donates up to 75% from revenue it receives on purchases made at over 3,000 online stores. We collect no personal information, no registration is required and choosing your cause is easy! Americans made over $200 Billion in online purchase last year! Imagine if just 1% of that was donated to the organizations who make a difference in the lives of millions everyday.

  • Hi everybody, I would like to add a link to an online greeting card store we just started for a small grass-roots NGO that supports children in Bangladesh and Uganda. Please have a look:

    If you like greeting cards it would be great if you could support us and spread the word!
    Thank you!!!

  • This site allows users to create a free webpage and customize it with their favorite retailers - all of which earn donations to the user's favorite charity.
    Use to shop for charity.

  • It is really so creative job,through this we can contribute and help for those needed people.

  • These Charity are doing a great thing for support a noble cause.
