FreePledge - Shop, Donate, Feel Good

Online shopping is becoming popular. You can buy almost anything on the Internet. If you live in a remote place or are hard-pressed for time, online shopping would come in really handy as the goods would be delivered right up to your doorstep.

How would you like to be able to continue shopping at the regular stores that you frequent and at the same time do some good? I'm talking about doing charity. There is this organization, FreePledge, a social venture out of Stanford that has taken philantropy a step further into e-philantropy and has leveraged the power of growing e-commerce market to power non-profit organizations.

Launched in Nov 06 and is currently in beta, they currently serve 153 nonprofits and partner with 160 retailers that include Amazon, com,, eBay, Expedia, Office Deport, Staples, Gaiam, Target, etc.

Support nonprofit organizations you care about every time you shop online at no cost. The next time you shop online, think FreePledge - Shop, Donate, Feel Good. Yes, you get to shop, you get to donate to charity and you get to feel good about it.
