Charity Gifts at Charitable Gift Giving

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.

From time to time our company would designate products where a portion of proceeds went to charity. But because the company and its shareholders were so focused on profits, many times these gifts with a charitable component wouldn’t see the light of day–maybe we’d feature them on the home page for a day or two, but after that it’d be lost. I noticed this trend among a lot of other big companies. They’d do a promotion with a charity, and then once they got out of the charity the PR lift they wanted, the  promotion would all but disappear.
The other thing that convinced me to start this site. Being an eager young employee, I spent my nights and weekends building Web sites for this company. Using my SEO skills, I was able to get them on top of Google for some very good the “right” way, just by writing great content that people liked and wanted to share with others. Once my pages started showing up on top of Google, others in the company took notice and took over those sites, basically ruining them by getting copywriters to replace my writing with “approved” marketing copy (which, if you know anything about SEO, quickly made them drop in search engines). Needless to say, I vowed at that time that I would use my “powers” for good–and I’d spend my nights and weekends doing something that I had control of.

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.

    What an awesome website!

    You may want to write a blog post about Giving Tree.

    My mom recently told me about Giving Tree, which is a company that sells debit gift cards. The really neat catch is that they require all of the gift card recipients to donate 10% of the money on the card to non-profit organization. Apparently, they have something like 1.5 million non-profits that the recipient can choose from.

    Anyways, if you’re interested, you can learn more about it at the giving tree website

    Great Blog!! Want to let you know about a great charity that not only works to break the cycle of violence against children, but they’re great at bullying prevention and internet safety. Celebrating their 9th year, they also sell swarovski bracelets which make great holiday gifts and a portion of the proceeds go to their cause. Their web site is http://www.loveourchildrenusa.org

  • deved123

    This is a great website and definitely needed now that we are approaching the holiday season!

    Another great gift campaign you may want to check out is one that was recently launched by Trickle Up, a poverty alleviation organization, and actress Maggie Gyllenhaal. This year give the gift that keeps giving by donating $100 to Trickle Up. To express their appreciation the organization will send a specially designed silver necklace (created by Ms. Gyllenhaal’s favorite jewelry designer TENTHOUSANDTHINGS) that makes a perfect gift for a loved one this holiday season! The $100 donation goes directly towards helping small entrepreneurs in Africa, Latin America and Asia take the first steps out of poverty.
    What a great way to make a difference no?
    Check out there website at http://www.trickleup.org
    You can order the necklace online and also read about the incredible work they are doing around the world!

    Hello there!

    You definitely deserve the credit for creating such an amazing site!

    It’s a fresh spin on blogging. I love it.

    Not a lot of people think of Everlast as being a charitable website, but they are!
    Everlast donates 5% from the sale of their pink boxing gloves to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF).
    This has been an ongoing campaign and I think it is great that the idea of boxing is used to battle and fight cancer.

    OM Surf International was created to help non-profits, charity, schools, and over all the community. We are trying to present a very positive image in a world of right and wrong. It seems like there are no large companies that are giving back numerous amounts of money to the communities in which they reside. OM Surf gives back 10% of its profits to the surrounding communities in which we are involved.

    Guess its easy for us mom’s to find things our kids will like and will also help our surrounding community!

    I wanted to suggest Green Tree Coffee and Tea as a socially responsible coffee vendor. I buy from them directly. Their whole bean coffees are Rain Forest Alliance Certified, and they donate $1 for every pound of coffee sold to Land Trusts and Dog Rescue organizations.

    This is some info I gleaned from one of their Newsletters: “Green Tree is committed to procuring the finest tasting, finest quality coffee from farmers who are dedicated to sustainable growing practices.

    Rainforest Alliance growers adhere to farm management guidelines developed by the Sustainable Agriculture Network and earn the Rainforest Alliance Certified seal of approval. The certification guarantees that the farm is managed according to the highest social and environmental standards.

    I thought I’d let you know about something pretty unique coming from L.A.-based beverage industry up start called O.N.E.™ World Enterprises. Today the company is launching a campaign with internationally renowned pop artist, Romero Britto, and the BrazilFoundation to raise awareness and funds to bring clean water to villagers in the semi-arid region of Northeast Brazil.

    Britto has designed the cover art for this limited edition beverage, which will be available at Whole Foods and Krogers stores across the U.S. throughout the summer. Renewable paper carton packages from Tetra Pak will be Romero’s canvas and will help to reinforce his passion for protecting the environment. A portion of the proceeds will go to the BrazilFoundation to provide clean water for as many as 1,200 people. The limited edition carton is available now nationwide while supplies last, and can be purchased at Whole Foods Markets and Kroger Stores, as well as online at Amazom.com for a retail price of about $1.99 (11oz.) and $5.79 (1L).

    Hi, I just wanted to let you know about an online fashion retailer called WorthyFashion.com, which donates a portion of their profits to kiva, a microfinance organization dedicated to helping entrepreneurs in the developing world start up their own businesses. Just for full disclosure, I am the web designer for WorthyFashion, and when I ran across this blog I thought it was the perfect way to let everyone know about our new website.

    We’ve got a whole section dedicated to our “Worthy Cause” complete with a flash map of the globe with dots representing all the entrepreneurs who have received our loans. The best part is that when the loans are repaid the money is recycled into a kiva-only account and we immediately loan out the money to a new recipient. In this way, our total lending capability increases not only with every sale but with every repaid loan…pretty cool right?!

    We sell authentic designer sunglasses from brands like Gucci, Yves Saint Laurent, Burberry, Ray-Ban and many more. We’ve also got cufflinks, silk scarves, dress shirts, luggage and even more great stuff than that. We’ve also got the lowest prices on the internet for almost all of our products and free shipping to boot.

    While we may not be a 100% charitable organization, we like to think of ourselves as a new kind of business – one with a heart. We get just as much satisfaction out of our work knowing that we’re helping entrepreneurs all over the world as we do knowing we’re giving people the best products at the best prices.

    Hi,
    I’m so happy to have come across this site! So many people are looking for gifts that not only make the recipient smile, but also benefit the greater good.

    I work with a company called Comfort Foods. a line of premium specialty sweets created by Maria Cuomo Cole (wife of shoe designer Kenneth Cole).

    One-hundred percent of the profits from Comfort Food are donated to HELP USA (www.helpusa.org ), a charity that Maria’s brother, Andrew Cuomo, founded in 1986 to fight homelessness. HELP USA is one of the country’s largest builders and operators of service-enriched transitional and permanent low-income housing.

    Comfort Foods products include gourmet imported organic French gray sea salt dusted “Salty Turtles,” luxurious Caramel Almond Chocolate Chip Bars, Chocolate and Toffee Covered Pretzels, and a decadent caramel and chocolate-covered “Popcorn Extravaganza.” The sweets are prepared by designer chocolatier Choco-Logo in Buffalo, New York.

    I found your site and thought you might be interested in another nonprofit organization – the American Diabetes Association – that is offering holiday photo cards with a charitable twist. All the proceeds from the cards go to diabetes research. Since diabetes affects so many of us and we all order photo cards for the holidays, I thought it was a great idea.
    They have a Web site at http://www.hopephotocards.org. They also offer other gift products that support diabetes research at http://www.diabetes.org/giftofhope.

    I found another great website that I thought your readers might like. Lesley’s Life is Sweet sells artisanal chocolates, and 20% of the proceeds go to charity. She is involved with, and I think even founded, a few different grassroots initiatives in Africa. Even cooler, she is the first woman (and all female company) to get a USDA certified organic line. Not to mention her chocolates are absolutely delicious!! good for the stomach and the soul :)

    Hello!

    I have been reading your blog, “Charitable Gift Giving: Gifts That Help.” I love all the great suggestions, especially as the holidays approach! I thought you might be interested in a site to share with your readers. UniversalGiving™ (UG) is a San Francisco-based website designed to connect individuals to reputable charities they can donate to or volunteer with. UG allows people to do something real to help the causes they’re interested in, by allowing those who want to give a multitude of good choices for how to give. As we enter the holiday season, we’re offering gift packages for people who want to do good as a gift to others. Individuals are invited to select an issue they care about, choose a gift package, and UniversalGiving™ will notify their friend or family member of the gift made in their name.

    UniversalGiving™ is a social entrepreneurship non-profit whose vision is to “create a world where giving and volunteering are a natural part of everyday life.” We are essentially a one stop shop that helps to address the problem of “how much and where to give” by providing a web-based service that connects donors and volunteers with exceptional organizations all over the world. And we don’t take a cut on donations. Another facet which makes UniversalGiving™ unique is our rigorous Quality Model™, which all of our partner nonprofits must pass through to appear on the site. To date, UG has matched more than 1.3 million dollars and 8,000 volunteers worldwide.

    We want to reach and help as many people as possible who share our vision. If you would be interested in mentioning or linking to UniversalGiving™ on your blog, it would give your readers a chance to utilize our resources, and give us the opportunity to reach more people. If you’d like to read more about our gift packages, you can visit our site at this address: http://www.universalgiving.org/gifts. We also have a new blog we’re excited about (www.philanthrobuzz.wordpress.com), where we’ve been highlighting great online resources for giving. It would be wonderful if we could each mention the other, and spread the word even more.

    If there are any questions you’d like answered or anything I can do to help, please ask! I’d be happy to put you in touch with CEO and founder Pamela Hawley for upcoming Q&A’s, “giving” postings, or anything else in the works.

    Thank you so much for your time. I hope to hear from you!

    Best,

    We all need holiday cards and these are really cool!

    üba is a San Francisco based social endeavor who has come out with stylized holiday cards in six of the united nations languages promoting [why not peace]. (English, French, Spanish, Chinese, Arabic, Russian). They’re under a $1 each and can be found at http://www.zazzle.com/whynotpeace.

    I’ve got pics and more of a story on üba if you’re interested, or you can check out more of their projects on whynotpeace.com or übawear.com

    What an awesome site!

    Thought you might be interested in this too…

    Nearly 7.5 billion greeting cards are sold in this country every year, and most of them wind up in a landfill. In light of that, and with the holiday season upon us, I thought you might be interested in this concept. An online company called ReProduct recently began offering “Zero Waste” Photo Cards:

    http://reproduct.net/

    ReProduct’s mission is to eliminate waste. To do this, they design products out of materials that can be turned into new products again and again. For example, “Zero Waste” Photo Cards come with pre-paid, pre-addressed envelopes; after the recipient is finished with the card, they just put it back in the envelope, drop it in a mailbox, and it’s sent to Shaw Industries to be turned into carpet backing. It’s a totally waste-free process.

    The photo cards also super easy to get—you can design and order them exactly the same way as you would on any other photo site. The company offers traditional box card sets as well.

    A pretty convenient way of doing two good deeds at once, right?

    They have a Facebook page too: http://www.facebook.com/pages/edit/?id=35027583943#/pages/ReProduct-Zero-Waste-Photo-Cards/35027583943

    Greetings CGGB

    Eric Reda here. I am hoping that you will help us spread the word regarding a unique program going on Chicago Opera Vanguard. For our next production, the Chicago Premiere of GREEK by Mark-Anthony Turnage, we have taken our fundraising and design efforts to the people.

    Believing that this important 20th century work about punks and skinheads warrants an equally anti-establishment approach to fundraising and design, we have established the “GREEK Graffiti Wall!” For a contribution as small as $1, patrons are invited to add any uploadable image to our website and be entered in a drawing for an exclusive VIP opening night package. The resulting “wall” of images will then be incorporated into the set and video design of the production.

    Presenting GREEK’s themes of unemployment, violence and racisim to an audience has never been more important than today!

    You can find a press release detailing the program at http://www.ChicagoVanguard.org. I would be happy to answer any questions you might have.

    Thank you in advance for your time and advocacy. All of my best to everyone at CGGB and I look forward to chatting with you soon.

    Artistic Director

    What a wonderful blog! I have an idea for a featured gift I’d like to share. In November, Microplace.com will be offering gift certificates for investments that will allow the recipient to give a micro-loan (or invest in one) to a person in need somewhere in the world. It’s an incredible way to make a huge difference in someone’s life for as little as $20 – and a wonderful way to honor a loved one. Please email me if you’d like to learn more! megan AT worldofgood.com.

    My name is Mara Suttmann, and I am the daughter of Holly Eve, founder of black & light co., a truly unique take on a candle company that gives new meaning to the word “glow.”

    Where do I begin? Our company is a family business, and since it was founded in early 2007, we have sought to create partnerships that allowed us to give back to our global community. This holiday season we want to share our beautiful candles with others while encouraging shoppers to “give glowing gifts that give back.”

    black & light co. has partnered with Airline Ambassadors and the Harry Laidlaw Honeybee Research Facility at the University of California at Davis as apart of our efforts to be a socially and globally aware business. We want to encourage our shoppers to use AAI100 to help out Airline Ambassadors (www.airlineamb.org) and BEE10 for the Harry Laidlaw Honeybee Research Facility at the University of California Davis when you check out. Shoppers can enter the code of their choice into the promotional code field at checkout. The buyer will receive a ten percent discount off the full price of the order. Shipping is free on two candles or more. A portion of the proceeds from any order using either of these discount codes will directly affect the chosen charitable organization.

    We would be honored if you would review our candles on your blog and help us “share the glow” of giving back this holiday season. Please go to our website http://www.blackandlightco.com to learn more about our work with Airline Ambassadors and University of California at Davis.

    A quick note on the candles: They are absolutely the world’s best unscented candle. What makes them so unique is both their exquisitely elegant designs, and their uncanny ability to glow (quite literally) from top to bottom and out all angles of the candle. Once lit, the light emitted from each candle creates a warmth and beauty that incomparable to other candles on the market.

    Thank you for taking the time to look at black & light co., I hope to hear from you soon!

    Cheers,

    Mara Suttmann (the daughter helping out a family business this holiday season.)

    Hello, and please allow me to introduce The Obakki Foundation, a non-profit organization created by Treana Peake, wife of Nickelback guitarist, Ryan Peake. The foundation provides people in developing nations with the opportunity to stand up and participate in improving their own lives.

    In the remotest regions of Cameroon, Africa, we gave 150 children living in three orphanages a piece of paper and a pen, and asked them these questions:

    What makes you sad?

    What makes you afraid?

    What makes you happy?

    And then, we took their answers and turned them into in a limited edition collection of: scarves, t-shirts, tote bags and more (you can view the collection online here:

    https://shop.obakki.com/ca/obakki-foundation

    But it didn’t end there. The response was so encouraging that we took those same words, along with the original art, and created a coffee table book that is now available on Amazon.com
    and at the Foundation –

    https://shop.obakki.com/ca/obakki-foundation/accessories/obakki-foundation-book.html

    All proceeds from sales of these items go back to the children in the orphanages, demonstrating to them that they can affect real, honest change. It doesn’t get better than this.

    If you can help these children by mentioning us in your blog, we would be very grateful.

    Hi! I’m writing to you about a Shopping.com promotion for the month of July, in which the site will donate a dollar to cancer research for every product review people leave on the site. While Shopping.com normally pays reviewers directly, this is a great way to provide people with the opportunity to affect change from their own living rooms, writing about products they already know and love (or know and hate!). Throughout the month Shopping.com hopes to help people raise donations while writing their passions, speaking up in a corporate setting, and above all getting their voices heard.

    Here’s the link to the online promotion description: http://www.shopping.com/sc/charity_promo. Your blog seems like an amazing resource for people that want to make a difference in the world, so if you would mention this promotion on your blog we would strongly appreciate it.

    Thank you so much!

    Great blog! May I suggest La Bella Baskets of Hope Program.This is a special program that was created and launched by La Bella Baskets in December of 2009.

    All purchases of gifts from La Bella Baskets directly contribute to our La Bella Baskets of Hope Program.

    La Bella Baskets believes every gift has a purpose and our purpose is to give back and we have chosen to give to Single Moms nationwide.

    La Bella Baskets understands the hardships and challenges single moms go through every single day.

    To show our appreciation, every month we deliver to single moms a La Bella Baskets of Hope filled with beautiful Spa and Bath essentials. La Bella Baskets shares a deeply held belief that every single mom needs
    a calm and nurturing place in their lives to relax, melt away stress, rejuvenate, heal and promote a truly ‘blissful balance’ in body, mind and spirit.

    Hi there!

    I work with a nonprofit organization that grants instruments to music programs across the country. Most of our funding comes from donations and memorabilia purchases. On our website, we have various artist signed memorabilia that is available for sale. Such items make great holiday gifts. People also donate to our foundation in honor of a holiday or on behalf of a friend or family member for birthdays or other special events. With the holidays coming up so quickly, we feel that our cause and merchandise would make an amazing gift, especially for those who support music education. Is this something you would be interested in blogging about? Fore more information please visit http://www.fendermusicfoundation.org/.

    Sincerely,
    Jennifer Jones

    Hi,

    I work with an international charity called Camara Education that is dedicated to using technology to deliver education more effectively to disadvantaged communities in sub-Saharan Africa.
    This Christmas, we are running our Learning Shop Christmas Gift Campaign which provides an ideal gift this Christmas by allowing people to sponsor a computer to be sent to a school in Africa for only $20 in their name or in the name of family and friends.

    Each computer that is sponsored will benefit the lives of 10 children. So please, if you are looking for a great Xmas gift idea that will help change a child’s future, log onto http://www.camaraeducation.org/shop and give the gift of education this Chriatmas.

    Sincerely,

    Joanne Callanan

    Hello, I’m writing on behalf of a nonprofit called Kitechild, an online network for the world’s orphanages. We are currently selling leather bracelets to raise money for educational tools for the orphaned children, who often lack money for books, tuition, uniforms, etc. The money earned from the “leather bands for learning” goes straight to the education funds at various international orphanages.

    You can see the bands (for men and women) at:
    http://www.kitechild.org/shop/

    The bracelets would be a great feature on your site! Please let me know how we can partner with you. Thanks!

    Hi Steve,

    I tried emailing you information on MD Anderson’s Children’s Art Project, but it appears that the email is not working. Is there a new address?

    Thanks!

    Great Site! Lots of useful content and helping people connect with the causes they care about.

    Have you considered Thrivent Financial? They are a large financial company and the only Fortune 300 financial company with the Not-For-Profit 501(c)(8) status. With this special tax exemption they give away roughly $3 million per week. The best part is that their customers are in the drivers seat on where the money gets used in their own individual communities.

    Check them out. http://www.thrivent.com

    Thanks
    Ken
