Charity Site Stores Online
I, personally, like these online stores that use the money to better certain populations. I have already assisted The Animal Rescue Site Store. I bought myself a dog collar ring. (My friendship ring from my dog to myself. At least, that's what it represents to me, and some of the money went to assisting an animal in need.) Shopping at these websites makes me feel like I can make a difference.
The Hunger Site Store - Each item you buy funds at least 50 cups of food for the hungry.
The Breast Cancer Site Store - Every item you buy helps give mammograms and funds research and care.
The Animal Rescue Site Store - Each item you buy funds the value of at least 14 bowls of food for shelter animals in need.
The Veterans Site Store - Each item you buy pays for at least one meal for a veteran.
The Rainforest Site Store - Each item you buy preserves at least one acre of rainforest land.
The Literacy Site Store - Each item you buy funds at least one new book for a child.
The Autism Site Store - Every item you buy pays for therapy and research, helping families and children living with autism.
The Diabetes Site Store - Each item you buy funds leading-edge diabetes research.
The Alzheimer's Site Store - Each item you buy funds leading-edge Alzheimer's research.
I do still have a giving heart, but I now select who I give to, just like many people have favorite charities. I found my favorite charity that actually needs me. I hope when I get back on my feet, I can help out my favorite population and make more differences in their lives. Until then, this is all I can do.
During this time of year, these Charity Site stores advertise getting the item for free, you just have to pay for shipping and handling. I have received some items that I really enjoy using. It makes me feel that I can still make a difference in someone else's lives.
