Barnabas Partners with Given Goods Co.
Written By: Sydney Johnson
Living in a consumer-driven society, shopping has become a very “me” centered activity with little regard for who is, or isn’t, affected by the purchased products. A new company, “Given Goods”, has made it their mission to change that.
Given Goods is an online store where each available product gives back to a charity of some sort. This innovative company gives consumers an opportunity to help others while still shopping for themselves. Between browsing Given Goods’ online marketplace and completing a transaction, shoppers can also read about the charities and organizations their purchases are supporting.
A common complaint about charitable shopping is that the consumer doesn’t actually know whether or not their money is going to where they are told it is. Fortunately, Given Goods has put an end to this gray area. By providing an online contribution tracker, shoppers can see where their money is going and watch the difference they are making!
Brands that give back with each purchase, like Barnabas Clothing Co., are influencing other brands to give back through Given Goods too! Brands will have the chance to work with Given Goods to create what the company calls a “socially responsible” product, choose a charity to give back to, and lastly, watch their product be put online for purchase.
So next time you need to buy a birthday gift, thank someone special, or simply find yourself browsing the online shopping world, check out http://www.givengoods.co/. Not only will you feel good about spending your money, but someone else will too!
