Contribute to Your Community Without Spending an (Extra) Dime

In the midst of all the negative stereotypes our generation faces, one thing I am actually proud of when people say “those millennials…” Is that our generation is viewed as being more community-minded, and more likely to contribute dollars and time to supporting causes we care about.

If you’re like me, there are many causes you care about. Try as I might, at this stage in life I’m just not able to give my favorite organizations as much as I’d like to. But I’ve found a few companies that I already do a great deal of my shopping with that can help me with this—at no added cost to me! For almost every purchase I make from Amazon and Fred Meyer/Kroger a portion of my sales gets donated to a school or nonprofit of my choosing. Here’s how to make your everyday shopping work for your charitable causes!
