Amazon.com now has a service that if you log-in and purchase things through this sub-domain:
http://smile.amazon.com/

You can pick a charity and for whatever (qualified) purchases you make; they will contribute 0.5% to the charity of your choice. I looked up Buddhist Global Relief and it was listed as one of their approved charities, so I chose that one for my purchases.

I had also mentioned that in my signature for my teacher, David. I came across something interesting though. I am not sure if I can find the link again. Ahhh, found it! It has to do with why we have to be careful of giving this way as it can lessen giving in other ways. When I thought about my own giving to an organization here in town where I live. I found that some of what was said in this article applied to my giving.(I buy grocery store cards that donate part of the profits to organizations).
Here is the link.
