I haven’t done a Friday Links in a few weeks, but I thought today would be appropriate today to pick back up with online Black Friday shopping. Rather than the obvious web sites, I thought I would feature some that give back in some way.

iGive.com: Sign up at this site and pick your organization. Whenever you shop through the site, iGive will donate a portion of your sales to your chosen organization. There are tons of online stores and items that you can shop from.

The Animal Rescue Site Store: Whatever you purchase through this site goes to help animals in shelters. I’ve linked the Christmas portion of their store above. How can you resist?

Ten Thousand Villages: This online retailer holds a special place in my heart. Not only is one of their largest stores in my hometown, but I know their cause is a good cause. Run by the Mennonite Central Committee, TTV is a place where artisans and craftsmen around the world can sell their items for fair trade. Fair trade means that these people have work and are properly compensated for it, and not ripped off like some places that sell items from around the world. Theses people are fairly paid and you get a good prices. I can attest to this place’s quality, variety, and downright coolness. If you love jewelry, this is also the place for you.

I can’t help but do this, but I just want to let you know that I do have an Amazon.com aStore and a CafePress shop as well that you can purchase some really cool stuff from. A little support from readers is always nice and very much appreciated! Also, if you are ever interested in purchasing prints, you can buy them from the following links.

deviantART prints
ArtWanted.com prints
Red Bubble
Imagekind 1, and Imagekind 2

Many of these sites are running their own holiday promotions, so check them out and thank you for your support!
