Help CFS Research While You Shop

Are you doing a lot of your holiday shopping online, like I am? Don't forget you can contribute to CFS research while you shop. I've used both of these sites:
  • iGive - the classic. Choose your charity and choose from hundreds of online stores. I have mine set to donate to the CFIDS Association of America. iGive also sends you updates of how much you've earned for your charity.
  • GoodShop - same sort of thing - choose your store and choose your charity. I just tried it out yesterday: shopped at Lands' End and donated to the Whittemore Peterson Institute.
Both sites also feature coupon codes (I got 25% off and free shipping yesterday at Lands' End!); the amount donated varies by store - usually between 1-5% of your purchase.

Happy Shopping!

  1. Hey thanks Sue! What a great idea and I'm an online girl this year, having failed miserably on my first two attempts at mall shopping. :)
