2017 marked a record-breaking charitable giving year for Americans, attributed largely to rising stock prices by economists. Meanwhile, less than 30% of charitable contributions coming from businesses.
To celebrate those who are really leaning in, we’ve rounded up a list of charitable giving campaigns that are making it easier than ever for busy folks like us to feel great about our everyday purchases:
1. Amazon Smile
If you rely on Amazon Prime to get through life and you haven’t started using Amazon Smile, you’re in for a real treat. It’s basically the same good ol’ Amazon, only you get to choose a charitable organization for the AmazonSmile Foundation to donate 0.5% of the purchase price (of eligible products) to. This charity shopping program may be mowing down retailers left and right in taking over the ecommerce space… but it’s convenience and dominance in product selection are tough to resist – so at least we can feel a little better about our purchases!
