Caring Causes: Goodshop Sunday

There’s Black Friday and Cyber Monday, but where’s the holiday spirit? Goodshop Sunday (November 30th) is the day where thousands of merchants will be offering great deals and coupons AND donating a percentage of nearly every purchase back to the shopper’s favorite nonprofit or school!
Nearly 70% of online shoppers say they feel at least a little guilty that they are not donating more of the money they use to shop for gifts*. On Goodshop Sunday, feel guilty no more!
Leading up to the day, thousands of stores (including Amazon,Old Navy, Target, and Kohl's) will have the best coupons and deals listed on Goodshop.com and will donate a percentage of nearly every purchase to the users’ favorite cause – for free!  In addition, on Goodshop Sunday, select retailers are offering double donations, while others are sharing exclusive deals-- so people can feel extra good about their holiday shopping!  
Passionate cause supporters nationwide are taking the #GoodshopSunday pledge - to buy 1 gift that gives back this holiday season - and spreading the word to get their friends to do the same. Photos of people forming the “hand heart” are being shared across social media-- acting as the visual confirmation of their pledge and the promise that holiday shopping can make a difference.

More than 110,000 causes are participating and it’s up to the shopper to select who they want to support. To bring that home – if you support the ASPCA, one sweater would raise enough to get two dogs adopted into loving homes.  If you support UNICEF, your purchase of an Xbox could donate enough to provide therapeutic milk to fourteen malnourished children. To date, Goodshop has raised more than $11 million for causes.

Plus, while there will be special deals on Goodshop Sunday, shoppers can find deals and donations all year long. Goodshop helps shoppers save more than just money!
Here are some sample holiday deals:
Amazon Coupon - Free shipping on purchases over $35 (1.5% donation)
