GiveBack.org is Perfect for EVERY Online Shopper!

For my family, Thanksgiving is really the beginning of the holiday season. Growing up, Thanksgiving marked the day that it was acceptable to put up our Christmas decorations, play the holiday music and shop for gifts. Now that I have my own family I have broken all those rules (my tree was up a week ago), but I do have to say that the Thanksgiving holiday really does put me in the holiday spirit and leave me feeling thankful for what I have and charitable towards others, which is why I am so glad that I found GiveBack.org this shopping season!

GiveBack.org is an organization created by Stephen Paletta, the gentleman who won Oprah's Big Give back in 2008. The concept is easy and appealing: you sign up for an account which serves as your "foundation." You can add money to your foundation yourself, through sponors, or through the GiveBack Shopping Mall, in which a % of every purchase you makes goes into your foundations. And this is where the magic of GiveBack.org really begins - you can manage the money in your foundation easily, giving the exact amount to want to virtually any charity with an official tax ID.

Did I mention that you get $5 in your foundation just for signing up?

Upon signing up, I couldn't believe how easy it was to find my favorite local charity through the search engine and donate my $5 - no strings attached!

Then, upon visiting the GiveBack Shopping Mall, I was amazed at how many online retailers are participating! This really is such a wonderful way to shop online for the items you're already looking for while donating a % to your favorite charities! At absolutely no cost to you - GiveBack.org is a movement that every online shopper should be participating in. There is no catch either - GiveBack.org guarantees that 100% of the money you donate goes to the charity of your choice. Fees are covered by sponsors!

What a beautiful, beautiful way to pay it forward this holiday season!

Here are a few of my favorites from the GiveBack Shopping Mall:
- Nordstrom (earn 4% for your foundation)
- Old Navy (earn 3% for your foundation)
- The Disney Store Online (earn 3% for your foundation)
- Diapers.com (earn 1% for your foundation)
- The Land of Nod (earn 5% for your foundation)
- Barnes & Noble (earn 4% for your foundation)
- The Children's Place (earn 3% for your foundation)
- The Body Shop (earn 6% for your foundation)
- Harry & David (earn 5% for your foundation)
- Target (earn 4% for your foundation)

... that's not even the half of it! There are over 400 retailers involved with GiveBack.org. All you have to do is shop through the links on the GiveBack.org website!

So what are you waiting for? Next time you're shopping online (which let's be honest, is probably today) please consider shopping through GiveBack.org.

We can ALL make a difference in all the little things that we do!

Coming soon GiveBack.org will allow users to create their own campaigns and fundraising tools for their favorite charities!

  2. Wow, what a great organization! And there are so many great stores participating. I try to be charitable all year but find that this time of the year I am even more so. We are so fortunate and I know there are many people out there who are struggling. Thanks so much for sharing!
