Shopping Online this Holiday Season?

16-Nov-2007
If you are an online shopper here is a site you may want to check out:  Non-Profit Shopping Mall
 
The way this site works is that you choose a charity (there are over 70 including America’s Second Harvest and Share our Strength) and then you shop from a selection of 125 retailers.  A portion of each sale goes to the charity you’ve chosen.  You still pay the same price as you would if you went directly to the site and right up front it tells you what percentage of your purchase goes to the charity.  The lowest percentage I saw was .5% and the highest 10%, with most being in the 2% -5% range.  While those percentages may not sound like much, even .5% can add up to a significant amount with enough sales. 
 
It’s up to you to do your homework to check out the non-profits to determine "worthiness" and up to you to decide if you think the retailer’s deal is something you want to participate in.  But if you are spending the money anyway…..
