A Look at Purchases that Give Back
When shopping, consumers should look for products that give back so they are receiving products and contributions are made to a charity or philanthropic effort. Shopping with a purpose benefits consumers because it stretches the donor dollar and offers a double gift opportunity (product and charitable contribution). Common items that give back include socks, t-shirts, shoes, eyewear, and mattresses. When deciding to purchase products that give back, you should research both the company and charitable contributions and reach out to the company with any questions. Take time to learn about shopping with a purpose including the benefits and how to ensure the company is properly allocating charitable contributions.
