New York, NY (PRWEB) May 24, 2012
DoGoodBuyUs, the first online marketplace for social good(s), recently welcomed four additional New York-based non-profit organizations to its growing roster of more than 60 charitable partners.
DoGoodBuyUs provides marketing and e-commerce solutions for products created exclusively by or for its non-profit partners. The site helps organizations maximize fundraising efforts through merchandise and event ticket sales so they can focus efforts and resources on their dedicated cause.
“We are proud to continually add new partners so that DoGooders have expanded choices and unique opportunities to give back,” said Zack Rosenberg, founder of DoGoodBuyUs. “More non-profits are recognizing DoGoodBuyUs as a valuable tool in their fundraising efforts, as consumers increasingly seek out products that support charitable causes.”
New York-based organizations joining DoGoodBuyUs include:
- Ground Up Global, which provides shelter, clothing, healthcare, education and food in Ghana;
- 5toRide, which promotes bicycle safety in New York City;
- A Global Friendship, which provides artisans in underserved communities worldwide with grants, business education, and market access for the sale of goods; and
- Water Collective, which maintains water technologies for clean drinking water in various locations around the globe.
“We’re able to offer a wider selection of unique, often handmade, products that consumers are already keen to buy, to create an online destination where shoppers can give generously at the same time,” Rosenberg said. “Here, to S.H.O.P. means ‘simply helping other people.’”
DoGoodBuyUs offers a broad array of items for sale on behalf of its charitable partners, including artwork, jewelry, clothing, accessories, tote bags, skin care products, make up, and tickets for special events. With every purchase, the vast majority of proceeds go directly toward the partner organization’s fight against poverty, hunger, disease, or environmental degradation around the globe.
DoGoodBuy.Us, the first online marketplace for social good(s), offers non-profits a unique platform to raise awareness and funding by selling their products to an online community of caring consumers. DoGoodBuyUs’ non-profit and charity partners sell beautiful, often hand-made, products to help to help fight poverty, hunger, disease, and environmental degradation around the globe. At DoGoodBuyUs, S.H.O.P. stands for Simply Help Other People. For further information please visit http://www.DoGoodBuy.Us.
