Shop for a Cause (OMG)

Age-old problem: should I go on a shopping spree or work to prevent HIV/AIDS today? Sigh. Well, now you can do both.

Just buy a $5 dollar pass from your friends at CAP. The pass earns you an extra 20% off sale and regular items at Macy's on September 20th. So depending on how much you indulge, that little pass could save you a lot of money. Meanwhile CAP receives the profits from the sale of the passes to help us continue the good fight in HIV/AIDS prevention, care and education. Who says that shopping has to be selfish?

Contact Janeen Provo at 503.223.WALK or jprovo@cascadeaids.org to ask for a Shop for a Cause pass. Ask for two or three and sell them to your friends! You've been eyeing those heels/pants/undies for way too long. Get shopping!

Thanks for writing about products that support this important cause. I created a company in memory of my 28 year old sister, Liz, who died from breast cancer. Uptown Liz (www.uptownliz.com) promotes products from companies whose proceeds go to charity. You can shop on this one-of-a-kind website by charitable cause or product category, knowing that every time you make a purchase you are giving back. There are many great art, clothing, jewelry, house wares, beauty and eco-friendly products (just to name a few) that benefit charities all over the world.
