For their flaws, I like that AmazonSmile allows percentages of each purchase you make directed to a charity of your choice, Etsy and eBay have similar programs but I think it is sellers choice. During natural disasters most of the etailers have donate buttons on their sites for a period of time.


Dr. Tom Stern passed away recently. He was a very good philanthropist.and a great natural pearl lover.
