Do Good By Shopping - Part 2

There's a lot of bad in the world. But for every bad thing, there is someone trying to bring about good and combat hate. YOU can be one of those people doing good. It can seem overwhelming when trying to figure out ways to help or what you can do to make an impact. Today I've compiled my second list of places that you can do good simply with your shopping powers. That's right, you can contribute to change just by shopping. And with the holiday season upon us, shopping for gifts is in full swing for a lot of us. So why not give back and do good just by buying gifts? If you'd like to see my first post with more great places to shop, click here. There's still a lot more places I'd like to add so I think I'll do a few more posts like this in the future.
