You guys know about this?
UncommonGoods has a Better to Give charitable program and their chosen charities include both Women for Women International and RAINN.
In 2011, you guys helped me raise $2.8k for Women for Women after we read about the continuing struggles of women in Congo, remember?
Well the fine folks at UncommonGoods remembered and they contacted me and asked for a signal boost for their charitable giving program. They have a goal to increase their company wide giving by 10%, which, considering the dollars they’re giving ($300K to date!), is pretty significant.
Here’s the thing: next time you have a gift to buy, you can help RAINN or Women to Women without spending one cent more than you would have already spent! All you have to do is shop at UncommonGoods.
Here’s some gifts you might consider:
Upcycled Cotton Sari Robe
F Bomb Paperweight (Bendis has one of these — no lie.)
Marimo Moss Ball Light Bulb Aquarium
Octopus Garden Sculpture (I kind of want this.)
Smartphone Film Scanner
There are more things and at various price points — lots of things in the $20 range. I’ve ordered from UncommonGoods in past and gotten good service and timely delivery.
…Just to be clear, I am not being compensated in any way—not with goods, services, credits or discounts. I just think this is a nice thing to do.
