We Care

Fund a Favorite Charity at No Extra Cost

Conscious shoppers spend their money wisely. But when they do shop, they can feel good about automatically donating a percentage of their online purchases to their favorite charity at no extra cost to them. www.We-Care.com is a user-friendly “click through” website that gives shoppers access to 800 retailers online, and then lets them choose among hundreds of charities to benefit from their purchase. They can even add a charity to the options if it’s not already listed. Nonprofit categories range from peace and justice, women’s advocacy, animal welfare and disaster relief to arts, education and environmental causes.
