Today’s way to do a little good is by doing what we do best, shopping!
the proceeds get donated to the Third Millennium Awakening, a company that employs locals in India to create and distribute filters to provide clean drinking water.
Toms has branched out beyond their flagship shoes to coffee where every purchase goes toward water systems in the countries where coffee is made, sunglasses where every purchase goes toward sight saving surgery, prescription glasses or medical treatment and bags where every purchase goes toward skilled birth attendants and supplies to help women give birth safely.
also check out the Marketplace where other charities sell their products, here are a few of my favorites:
For every comforter bought one is donated to a homeless child in the Unites States
For every bottle of liquid soap purchased one month of water is donated, for every bar of soap purchased one is donated and for every bottle of body wash purchased 1 year of free vitamins is donated.
In addition check out these companies:
