There are so many wonderful ways to give back during the holidays. In recent years, it's been even easier simply by purchasing certain products from companies that have teamed up with charities like St. Jude. Though if you have trouble finding a way to shop for your favorite causes, you can go to Shop For Your Cause and pick from many different charities. You can pick by cause in a general category like child and welfare or pet rescue, then you can narrow it down to organizations in your area.

They have major partners like Target, Best Buy, Overstock, Amazon, and many other stores you likely already shop at. It works by the money sponsors pay them for advertising. Shop For Your Cause in turn donates a small percentage of that money to the charity of the buyers choice. Percentages of the donations average from 3% to 6% with some as high as 10%. You can shop by cause, submit a cause, or you can do a search by which items you want to shop for like women's clothing or gifts and flowers. Click here to start shopping >
