Christmas Shopping with a Conscience

“Happy, happy Christmas, that can win us back to the delusions of our childish days; that can recall to the old man the pleasures of his youth; that can transport the sailor and the traveller, thousands of miles away, back to his own fire-side and his quiet home!” ~Charles Dickens, The Pickwick Papers, 1836

Hello, everyone! I hope everyone celebrating Chanukah this week is taking the time to enjoy and having a wonderful reunion with family and friends.

It’s that time of year again…for those of you who still have holiday shopping to do, I encourage you to look at a page I made for an online auction site called Triple Clicks, Christmas Shopping with a Conscience. Bear in mind that it’s just dressed up for Christmas right now–you can shop there all year round; anytime you might want to get something from eBay, you can check Triple Clicks as well.

Triple Clicks is a way to give back even if you don’t think you can afford it. It is a gigantic web mall that contains mostly private seller listings, and offers you the opportunity to sell items you have that you no longer need, but unlike Ebay and other auction sites, a portion of the proceeds goes to support CARE International.

From site: “TC is a bargain hunter’s paradise. Browse thousands of quality used items including collectibles and items available nowhere else. New items added daily. ‘Haggle’ for the best price and snatch bargains for pennies on the dollar. TC makes it quick, simple and easy to sell the stuff you no longer need for cash! Use TC as your online garage sale to clean out your closets, attic and garage! Easily list and sell dozens of miscellaneous items.”

That’s right–do your discount shopping and help to fight global poverty at the same time. What could be better than that?

As always, you can see what I’m up to at Laurie Beth’s Grotto. You can also check out the Twitter.

Season’s Greetings! ❤
