You can feel good about your purchase knowing that a portion of the profits goes to the Wildlife Conservation Network, Sightsavers, Kiva, and the Environmental and Energy Study Institute.
Wildlife Conservation Network protects endangered wildlife by supporting conservationists and locals who ensure wildlife and people co-exist and thrive.
Sightsavers is probably the most effective charity I give to as far as how much good your donation can do (you get the most bang for your buck so to speak). They work to prevent avoidable blindness and on advocacy for disability rights in 30+ countries. Just $3 can provide a cataract consumable kit for five operations, $8 pays for a trichiasis operation (preventing blindness for a person), $12 could prevent 554 families from losing their eyesight to river blindness.
Environmental and Energy Study Institute advances innovative policy solutions for a more sustainable energy path. I like this approach because all the science and research in the world will do no good if that information does not get into the hands of people who have the power to change it.
