Just a few more shopping days left in the holiday season, and if you’re like us, you probably have put it off until the last minute! But that doesn’t mean we can’t still shop with purpose, and there are many ways to support socially conscious organizations with your holiday gifts.
GlobalMojo Comparison Shopping
GlobalMojo Comparison Shopping features tons of stuff that go easy on your wallet. Seriously—33 million products from top merchants like Barnes & Noble, Zappos, iTunes, Best Buy and more? You’re definitely going to find what you need. Just use the GlobalMojo Comparison Shopping button on the upper right hand corner of your GlobalMojo browser.
And remember, during the month of December, 100% of the revenue you generate using GlobalMojo goes to the causes you support. For example, when you spend $100 using GlobalMojo shopping, on average $4.00 will go to your chosen causes. (Estimate only; donation varies based on product and retailer selected.)
For more great ideas on socially conscious consumption, check out three of our favorite partner organizations:
GlobalMojo is proud to partner with Free the Children and their Me to We brand of socially conscious clothing (i.e. ethically manufactured & sweatshop free!), books, DVDs and other great gifts! When you shop with Me to We, 50% of the profits benefit Free The Children, the largest nonprofit of children helping children through education. As if that wasn’t enough, do you have a young person in your life that you would love to inspire to be an adventurer? Right now, buy any book through the Me to We Store and a book goes to a child in a developing country.
Oxfam America Unwrapped has a huge selection of gifts you give to those in need. You choose your gift, personalize the included card, and your donation goes all over the world to those who need it most. Give everything from a bar of soap to rebuilding a school.
How do you shop for the friend who has it all? Give a gift that benefits more than just the recipient. Change.org’s 2009 Holiday Gift Guide has thousands of socially conscious gift ideas, from range-free dog chews to organic chocolate to a share of local farmland!
Change.org is the leading site for social change, providing daily news and information about important social issues and empowering people to take action.
Are you seeing a pattern here? Use this holiday season to purchase gifts that continue to give back to those most in need. If you’re going to spend money on presents, why not make your money count?
Finally, if you want to support Free The Children, Oxfam America, Change.org or any of your favorite causes, be sure to download the GlobalMojo browser and browse with purpose for these great organizations year-round.
That’s good Mojo! Or Happy Holidays from the GlobalMojo team!
