Every day, we think of buying something that is for us, our loved ones and sometimes even for strangers. It is important to understand our social responsibility and accordingly purchase things that can be beneficial for others even.
This might not be possible for you every time, but there are ways in which you can shop for a cause and yourself, at the same time. If you are looking for such ideas, check out the following ways in which you can achieve the objective.
1. Look for retailers donating to a charity
There are many retailers donating a certain percentage of the proceeds to various charities. In some cases, it is possible that they might be donating and amount to the charity of your choice. You can find such retailers by looking at websites like GoodSearch, Giftback.com, ShopAnthropy, and many others. Have a look at search websites and learn about the retailers donating a percent of the proceeds to the charity of your choice and complete your purchase accordingly. In this case, you might end up paying a couple of extra dollars for your purchases, but you can be sure that an equal or higher amount will be donated to the charity of your choice.
2. Donate cash back
Do you know that you can donate your cash back that is collected from online stores like Target, Best Buy, Macy’s and many more? This is possible with the help of fundraisers like Giving Assistant. Giving Assistant for non-profits is changing the way people look at the cash back amount they can get with an online purchase. In most of the cases, the cash back amount might not have a considerable impact on your savings, but it can have a study impact on someone in need. So, visit the website and understand how it works to be sure that you are donating enough to help someone else live their life in peace and happiness.
3. Look for ‘shop for a cause’ event
While shopping at Macy’s, you might have realized that they hold events where you can purchase a savings pass from a kiosk that is placed near the front door. While this pass gives you a discount on your purchases at the retail store, the amount spent on buying the pass is passed to the charity in the spotlight.
This is one of the best ways in which you can do something for people in need and, at the same time, make sure that you get the best of The Deals available at the retail store.
4. Shop from socially conscious retailers
There are many retailers who are conscious of their social responsibilities and make sure that every attempt they make is for the good of people in the society, customers, and even nature. Purchasing from them will not only help you in getting a great deal but also be sure that they will invest in products that will make a difference to this world.
