Once again, it’s the time of year to spread some cheer to our family, friends, and co-workers by purchasing holiday gifts online. Charitable giving by online shopping through iGive.com, Goodshop.com, and AmazonSmile allows you to make purchases while combining the act of donating to your favorite cause.

Why Charitable Giving?

Each service donates a percentage of your online purchases to the charitable organization of your choice. With partnerships from over 1,500 popular stores on all three networks, funds from iGive, Goodshop, and AmazonSmile, these donations help The Life Raft Group to continue to search for a cure for GIST.

All purchases trigger a donation towards non-profit organizations like the Life Raft Group. Remember to take note of each site’s unique features such as registration. On iGive, you must register with a username whereas on Goodshop, no personal information is needed – just enter the cause you would like to support. AmazonSmile allows you to use your existing Amazon.com account if you have one, or create a new account on smile.amazon.com and search through tens of millions of products eligible for donation.

If online shopping isn’t your thing, searching the web through goodsearch.com and isearch.igive.com, both powered by Yahoo, raises money for the Life Raft Group. So spread a little extra cheer this year and enjoy the gift of charitable giving.
