Shopping Online Can Benefit Your Favorite Mental Health Charities

Screaming kids, pushy adults, and a grumbling belly – shopping the mall during the holiday season isn’t always as attractive as those retail stores’ commercials make it look.

If you’re still trudging through your holiday shopping, why not consider wrapping it up online? Not only will you be shopping from the comfort of your own home (screaming kids may or may not be included), but you can also help your favorite mental health related charity!

If you shop online through GoodShop.com, a percentage of each purchase you make is donated to the charity of your choice. All you have to do is select the charity you want to benefit and make your purchase. GoodShop.com will then make sure up to 30% of your purchase goes to your charity. Over 700 retail venues participate (including Amazon, Gap, Home Depot, Old Navy, Toys R Us, and Wal-Mart) and you can even find special deals and coupons for using GoodShop.com.

Too, charities supported by some of your favorite celebrities benefit when you shop through GoodShop.com. For example, you might put a smile on Hugh Laurie’s face if you choose the National Alliance on Mental Illness as your charity.

In addition to a plethora of mental health related organizations and charities focused on certain regions, other larger organizations that benefit from GoodShop.com include Mental Health America, the Mental Health Association, and the Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance.

So, what are you waiting for?
