SixDegrees.org

http://www.sixdegrees.org

You've probably heard of the Six Degrees concept. Any one person (including me, Kevin Bacon) is connected to any other person through six or fewer relationships, because it's a small world. SixDegrees.org is about using this idea to accomplish something good. It's social networking with a social conscience.
Through this website, you can support your favorite charities by donating or creating fundraising badges — as well as check out the favorite causes of other people, including celebrities.  You can also pay it forward with Good Cards® - gift cards for charity that can be redeemed as a donation to more than 1 million charities.

WebThriftStore

WebThriftStore is not a charity; we're a business that supports charities and charitable giving. We allow donors to list what they have and offer it for sale to others, with the proceeds going to the charity of their choice. We handle all the logistics of the sale, including our 30-day Buyer Assurance Guarantee (on shipped items), make sure the charity is IRS-approved, that all proceeds of the sale go to the charity, and that the donor and buyer receive proper documentation. We pay all credit card and transaction processing fees, return shipping and insurance fees and customer support costs. Charities pay us a small fee to provide these services.
