Make it count. When you shop, and let's face it we all have to shop, lessen the guilt by supporting your favorite charity. Shop through Maatiam at retailers such as Target, Gap, Gaiam, Ebay, and even Amazon, and at no additional cost, they donate to a charity of your choosing. How does it work? The retailer pays a commission to Free Pledge, who in turn gives a percentage of your purchase to the charity of your choice. Donation rates are 5% for Amazon.com, and 7% for Drugstore.com. For some retailers, the rates are as high as 25%. Better yet, sign up at Maatiam is free and they offer several environmental organizations such as Sierra Club and Greenpeace. Shop on shoppers.
