Conscious Shopping tip



I was thrilled to hear from Kara (of Uncommon Goods -  an online retailer that endeavors to feature unique designs and handcrafted products to a broad audience, while raising funds for a variety of  charities).

Kara tells me that they have the aim of increasing their monthly donations by 10%... and asked me to help get the word out about their  Better to Give  charitable program that allows their customers to choose a  charity at checkout for us to make a $1 donation to. Our goal this month is to increase average monthly donations by 10%.

So of course I was thrilled to play a small role in this - I can only celebrate businesses that act in such a conscious and proactive way to create positive change across the planet. In just 12 years UncommonGoods.com has raised over $300,000 for several charities including RAINN (an anti-sexual violence organization with programs to prevent violence and help survivors in the healing journey), American Forests (works to protect and restore forests across the globe), Women For Women Int. (offers tools and resources for survivors of war ravaged areas to overcome the challenges and reach for self-sufficiency) and City Harvest (a wonderful anti-hunger organization that reduces food waste and decreases hunger issues). 


 If our readers have a chance, please do drop by the UncommonGoods.com site and see what kind of products they can offer you - and make a big difference in the world at the same time. I took a gander at their garden genre products and loved the recycled bottle water tool, the recycled tube kneeling pad, the gardener's seat, kitchen composter (don't get me started talking about composting - lol)  and the spider gloves.
