More online, ethical shopping
A new website, Kids International Net Donations, is offering a way to help raise money for charities while shopping online. You use the site as an intermediary while shopping at other major online stores, and a percentage of what you spend gets donated to the charity of your choice. The percentage varies depending on the supplier of the goods, but it's usually around 5%. And because Kids International is staffed by volunteers, 100% of income goes to the charities. Other, similar websites tend to take a cut of the income for their own expenses.
