Amazon recently started Amazon smile, an initiative to give 0.5% of the sale price of most items to 1 of 5 charities:

Points2shop would like to have our accounts join this program. For our accounts we will have to choose a charity that the money will go to. We will only be able to choose 1 program for all Points2shop orders

I'd like you all to vote which charity that would be!

Poll: Which charity should this money go to?

I would definitely suggest that the money go to DoSomething.org.

Here's what this organization is about: DoSomething.org is the country’s largest not-for-profit for young people and social change. We have 2,215,655 members (and counting!) who act on causes they care about. Bullying. Animal cruelty. Homelessness. Cancer. The list goes on. DoSomething.org spearheads national campaigns so 13- to 25-year-olds can make an impact - without ever needing money, an adult, or a car. Over 2.4 million people took action through DoSomething.org in 2012. Why? Because apathy sucks.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

In reality, the society we live in do have stereotypes about young people that are not true. And it is time for a change.

I think this is what makes this site different from all the others, the fact that you can DONATE some of your earnings to a charity of your choice. I think that is an amazing idea... since we're earning points to get free items, it doesn't hurt to just spend a little (or a lot, depending on how generous you're feeling that day) and give a little bit back.

dosomething.org it is! thanks for voting! 26 votes vs 9 for the 2nd position (charity:water)

We can later always do a new vote and change.

amtrinity, I definitely like that idea. We won't be able to use that on our corporate purchases (as that is ordered through an integrated automatic system) but I will definitely start using that on my personal transactions. Thanks for the suggestion.
