Are You Prepared for Father's Day?
By Sheryl Kraft
I know, I know, every year Father's Day is around the same time..the third Sunday in June (this year, it's June 21st). So, why do I usually wait til the last minute? I don't know - I have no excuse. Except one - I never seem to be able to figure out what to buy, so I put it off, thinking that I'll be inspired at the very last second.
So, my dear readers, if you're anything like me and share some of the same problems, I'm giving YOU a gift.
Here's a terrific and easy way to not only be prepared ahead of time with a nice gift for your dad or hubbie, but actually do a good deed at the same time, by contributing to a non-profit organization. And, you can get discounts, too - from stores like Ann Taylor Loft, Home Depot, Staples and more.
Good Shop.com and Good Search.com provide an easy way to do this.
Choose a gift at GoodShop.com like this: (FYI: GoodShop.com is an online marketplace. They've partnered with more than 1,000 stores that have agreed to donate to the charity of your choice.)
- Go to
- Designate your favorite cause (you only do this the first time)
- Click through to your favorite store - shop on their site as you normally would and a percentage of your purchase will go to your cause!
Browse the web at GoodSearch.com like this: (FYI: GoodSearch.com is a Yahoo powered search engine that donates about a penny per search to your favorite cause.)
- Go to
- Designate your favorite cause
- Search as you normally would - every time you search, about a penny goes to your cause!
How's that for being prepared AND being charitable at the same time?
What are you buying for Father's Day? I bought my husband a great gift...but can't tell, just in case he's reading this. (And I'm sorry I didn't know about this site earlier...I could have contributed to my favorite charity, too. But there's always next year...)
