Sites that donate while you shop...

Now, if you are a shopper, I have some help for you on how to donate online while you are shopping. Here are a few options iGive, and Charity Mall.

iGive work by donating for every search and up to 26% of your purchases at over 700 participating stores; such as, eBay, Staples, JCPenney, Barnes & Noble,,, Office Depot, QVC, Expedia, Home Depot, HSN, Best Buy, Drs. Foster & Smith, Gap,, & NORDSTROM. Lots of options and you get to choose your favorite charity to donate too. There are more than  34,367 organizations listed already at, and more get added every day.

Charity Mall is different because all the money earned is donated to the Cancer Research Foundation, a charity which raises funds to support various research institutes who are working to understand and cure cancer. By using charity mall you can go to 100's of merchants sites (such as Target, Home Depot, Sony, Gap, REI, and more) and the merchants are donating a certain percentage or amount with every purchase. By buying at the regular price you are giving money to cancer research. Pretty cool, huh?

Do you know of any other sites that do this? I think its great to remember that even when shopping we can create change in the world.
