Giving back is one of the most selfless things that you can do. And when you can't give back — you sometimes feel like you haven't done enough. What if there are ways that you can donate to your favorite charities while you shop? That would be awesome!
Thanks to technology, there are now multiple apps that you can use that will allow you to donate to your charity of choice hassle-free.
Amazon Smile works with over one million charities and allows you to donate to any charity of your choosing. They will also donate 0.5% of each eligible purchase that you make to that charity. There are never any fees or extra costs, and you can simply browse categories, complete your order, and your donation is sent to your charity.
Goodshop has thousands of participating online stores to shop at and over 114,000 charities, including schools that you can donate to. If you don't see your school or charity listed, you have the option of adding them, and they offer over 25,000 deals, discounts and coupons to choose from. Just look for your favorite retailer and a certain percentage will be donated to your charity upon completion of a qualifying purchase.
iGive has over 35,000 charities and more than 2,300 online stores that participate. You just need to sign up online and choose your charity to donate to, and it's free.
Charities receive on average about three percent of your qualifying purchases. You can also list the charity of your choice here if it's not listed.
EScrip lists thousands of participating merchants, charities and schools and allows you to earn donations by dining out, reserving travel and registering eligible store loyalty cards, debit, and credit cards when shopping.
