Then I saw a really creative way to SHOP and GIVE at the same time from Ideal Bite. They note several credit cards that donate a portion of what you spend with them to charitable organizations such as World Wildlife or Planned Parenthood.

In addition to throwing the Giving Party this year, my extended family has pledged to give gifts of art or eco-friendly products for Christmas. Admittedly, even after swearing off more toys for my kids, I’ve found a few goodies I think they will love.
