Welcome to Charitable Gift Giving!
I started this site a few years ago with one purpose: to find some of the best stuff you can buy on the Web where a portion of the proceeds are donated to a charity or other non-profit organization in need.
I started this site a few years ago. At the time, I was working for one of the Internet’s largest online retailers, in charge of their Web site, their online customer experience, and their search engine optimization.
And so that’s how this site got started. In the early years of the blog, I focused on “big companies” which gave a portion of proceeds of products to charities and great causes. But something interesting happened over the years. More and more I’m being contacted by young entrepreneurs, many who themselves got weary of “big corporate life” and decided to start their own businesses which produced great products and also helped great causes. It’s been my pleasure to help bring a little awareness to these sites.
And so that’s the story. And as long as I can, I’ll continue to surf both major retailing sites and small businesses, to find the best out there. Whether you buy these products as gifts for others or for yourself, you can feel great about your purchase, knowing that you’re not just buying a gift, but helping a great cause too.
I’ll try to update the blog at least once a week, so check back often. If you happen to bump into a great product yourself, feel free to leave a comment here, and I’ll put it up! If you represent a charity, retailer, or manufacturer and are interested in getting the word about about a physical product you have to offer, please email me at steve ( at ) charitablegiftgiving.com.
