Shopping to feel good about!

While a little bit of retail therapy never hurt anyone, I recently spotted a site where consumers can feel genuinely good about purchases.

Altruette features sweet charms, bracelets and necklaces, and 50% of the net profits from each sale go to different nonprofit organizations.

I love organizations that dream up innovative, fun ways to engage the public AND support a good cause, and the charms are so adorable, it's easy to want to buy them. I love the elephant and camera charms pictured below, and knowing a sizable chunk funds go to help others make these charms all the more appealing!
