I asked our friends at American Forest last month what they'd been able to do with our Better to Give donations over the past year. Turns out they've planted more than 59,000 trees across the US. Isn't that incredible? And it's all because of you. Each time you pick American Forests at checkout, we donate $1 to their tree-planting programs. Thanks for your loyal support!
This holiday season, the term "Secret Santa" got a new meaning when mysterious donors paid off Kmart layaway accounts across the country. This heart warming story definitely helped get us in the holiday spirit, but it also got us thinking about ways to do good all year long. We try to make it easy for our customers to help us give back through our Better to Give Program. Through this program, we donate $1 to the Better to Give charity of your choice each time you place an order with UncommonGoods. Here's what our partners were up to in 2011, and how you can get involved in 2012.
