do some good while shopping

hey for all of you that go on the internet (everyone) or shop online (nearly everyone)-- check this out.

goodshop.com is a shopping directory site and each purchase you make at one of the stores linked to goodshop.com will get a donation of up to 30% to the school or charity of YOUR choice. This is legit. It was on the NY news for the past few days.

Go to www.goodshop.com and 1) choose the charity you want to receive a donation then 2) choose the online store below that you want to shop from. You will see the % of your purchase that the corresponding store will donate.
There are tons tons of name brand sites such as amazon.com, itunes, the gap, bloomingdales, barnes and noble, apple and seriously tons more. You can search for a specific charity just by typing in a few words. The charity must be actual and verifiable through goodshop.com (done instantly).

The other great one is www.goodsearch.com
Use this site like a google browser and the charity that you choose to receive a donation will receive 1 penny for every search you do from goodsearch.com. For example--you could search for seattletimes.com through the search bar on goodsearch.com just to read the paper and the charity of your choice gets a penny. Doesn't sound like much, but it adds up! Many charities right now are seeing large declines in donations due to the recession. This is your chance to give by doing something you'd do anyway.

side note: yesterday it was 67 degrees. today, its 29 and we have 3" of snow. :-)

Spread some holiday cheer!
