Patriot Threads

http://www.patriotthreads.org

Patriot Threads was founded by a 17 year-old student named Brady Fernandes. Raised in the South, Brady saw a need in the marketplace for high-quality classic Southern style clothing with a patriotic flair. It was really very simple: he wanted to take all the modern design elements of today’s youthful trends and tie these in with his love of Country, Southern tradition and an outgoing lifestyle to create an iconic brand that you would be proud to wear. This became the brand Patriot Threads. Brady also has a passion for helping others and was inspired to donate a portion of all sales to charities that support wounded veterans who have sacrificed so much when serving our country.

Help Freely Foundation

https://www.helpfreely.org/en

The Help Freely Foundation has created a platform and browser application (available for Firefox and Chrome) that allow people to raise funds for the causes they care about most every time they shop online, and what's best: It doesn't cost the user any extra money! You pay exactly the same price, at the same online store, but the outcome is entirely different, as a percentage of what you spend will go to a nonprofit of your choice. They also intend to change the mindset of people, hoping to end up with a large social network of people that conciously decide to make these two extra clicks when they shop online, being aware of the huge positive impact this can have. They currently have nearly 6000 shops connected and operate in 15 markets and seven languages.
