Special Offer: Shop for Good this Valentine’s Day

Are you, or your significant other, looking for something unique this Valentine’s Day? Flowers and chocolate are great, but you can also go beyond this year and shop for good.

When you shop for good, your dollars don’t just go into a large business’s piggy bank—they go toward creating livelihoods for underprivileged people around the world. You shop. You do good. It’s as simple as that!

This year, we’ve sweetened the deal by partnering with three shop-for-good organizations to offer discounts just for our blog readers. Now you or your S.O. can give the perfect gift while giving others a better life AND still saving money. Check out the world-changing organizations below and start shopping!
