About ShopForGood

When I was in the 3rd grade, I volunteered helping special needs kids ... and I was hooked! I've been a candy striper, helped clean up the beach, worked as a Court Appointed Special Advocate supervising parental visits with abused kids, mentored inner city girls in Boston, helped run a networking organization for entrepreneurs, sat on the board of an organization that creates yoga learning programs for youth, and ..., on a daily basis, help create marketing campaigns and websites for hundreds of nonprofits in the U.S. and even around the world! 

As you can see, I'm pretty passionate about nonprofits, so it's no surprise that I'm always looking for new ways to help -- like "ShopForGood".  I've seen that lots of nonprofits sell some really cool stuff, but not many people know. Soooooo, I've created ShopForGood - the first comprehensive directory of products you can buy from nonprofits. Remember, every time you make a purchase from a nonprofit, that is one step closer to the world be a better place. Check out the wonderful things you can get all while you "do good"!

No child labor in carpet making

While a beautiful, handmade rug is something to be proud about, it's certainly not worth celebrating if your carpet has been made with child labor. Around the world, many youth are forced into child labor in this industry.

You can help end child labor by doing the following:

1. Buy carpets with a Child-Labor-Free Certification. To earn the GoodWeave label, rug exporters and importers can be licensed and must sign a contract that they will adhere to the standards. To learn more, visit Child Labor Free Certification.

2. Purchase a GoodWeave certified rug. When you purchase a certified rug, not only is your rug likely a higher quality (a skilled adult weaver is far more skilled at knotting than a child), but you are also putting your money where your mouth is ... that child labor is not acceptable. Find Retailers and Showrooms.
