Your Chance To Have Coffee With Robert De Niro!

Dear Shop-Anthropists,

We love Bloomingdale's for all their generous charitable giving over the years - as well as their beautiful merchandise!
This year they have really outdone themselves with their Holiday Charity Auction that opened yesterday on Ebay. Five different extraordinary experiences are up for grabs to the highest bidder during the online auction. It concludes on December 10th. Get your family photo shoot with star photographer ANNIE LEIBOVITZ, have VERA WANG assist you in choosing one of her famous bridal dresses before you jet off to Hawaii for a romantic get-away, sit down for coffee with ROBERT DE NIRO and attend the Tribeca Film Festival as a VIP Insider. Parrotheads will go bananas over the possibility of meeting JIMMY BUFFET next August and attend one of his concerts with backstage passes, or jet off to London for a fashionista weekend, attending the BURBERRY FASHION SHOW with front row seats, right up there with Anna Wintour, Kate Moss, Gwyneth Paltrow and Madonna. 100% of the proceeds benefit Child Mind Institute.
It is the most fabulous charity auction we could find and we are very happy to have both Bloomingdale's and Ebay among our retailers.  The amazing auction may be just a bid out of reach, with the different experiences starting at a $25 000 bid and up - but we can all be Shop-Anthropists! Bloomies has wonderful gift items at very reasonable prices so everyone can participate.
Click Bloomingdale's and Ebay to get to their respective shopping sites. Shop+Give!

Thank you for reading!

30 Little Treasures Until Christmas

Dear Friends,
The Holiday Season is almost here - a time for giving and gifting and generosity, family gatherings and celebrations. It’s so nice to stay home -- the house smells of fresh baked cookies and turkey and trimmings.  If we could just stay home in front of the fire and spend time with our families, why would we ever leave to go shopping??
Why bother with bad weather, traffic jams around the malls, hectic preparations and all that additional stress?  We understand completely where you are coming from when you wish that January were already here! 
So we came up with a way to help and make it easier!


Remember the Holidays as a child? The anticipation and joy as you peel back the doors on your Christmas Calendar, one each day, to reveal a delicious little chocolate?

The NonProfitShoppingMall elves have been hard at work selecting great gifts for each and everyone from some of our favorite gift retailers -- for every budget, from small and wonderful to expensive and grand.

Starting on November 23rd and ending December 22nd, 
the final day for online shopping to guarantee timely delivery, 
we will send a daily message via Twitter with a gift idea and the online retailer link.

Make sure to install your EZ Shopper App ( from our partner directory so your organization benefits from your Shop-Anthropy!

Follow us on Twitter,  just click to buy fabulously fun gifts from the comfort of your own home!  There’s nothing like shopping online in front of a crackling fireplace, wearing your bunny slippers per our friend Rachael Ray and getting that soothing sugar rush from some hot cocoa.  Does it get any better — I don’t think so !!

Thank you for being a Shop-Anthropist and Happy Holidays!

Get your EZ Shopper Widget from the American Health Assistance Foundation

          Dear Shop-Anthropists,

There are so many non-profits and so many good causes, it’s easy to get overwhelmed. So we thought we will help. Our
Healthy Aging Spotlight is turned on the American Health Assistance Foundation,
Here is what they do in their own words:
AHAF is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that funds research seeking cures for Alzheimer's disease, age-related macular degeneration and glaucoma, and provides the public with information about risk factors, preventative lifestyles, available treatments and coping strategies. We disseminate vital information to the public, especially those affected by these age-related degenerative diseases, through our website, print publications, as well as TV and radio Public Service Announcements (PSAs). Our aim is to educate people about risk factors, the latest research, treatment options, risk reduction through healthy lifestyles, and ways to cope with the effects of these diseases.

Sadly, many of us will experience one of those problems during our lives, whether it will be personally or in family members.
You can help AHAF by downloading their EZ Shopper App and directing the corporate giving funds generated from your online shopping on your browser’s toolbar.

It's "Healthy Aging Month" on

Dear Shop-Anthropist!
You may think that we chose "Healthy Aging" as our focus for charitable giving for the month of November because leaves are falling everywhere, the days are getting shorter and darker and the year is coming to an end. But no, we are not that moribund! Quite on the contrary, it is wonderful to put on the fireplace and enjoy the crackling flames with a nice cup of hot chocolate or a good class of red wine, both anti-oxidants! This whole month we will feature retailers who specialize in products that help us age gracefully, healthily and happily. Join us on Twitter to get the daily updates. Bookmark and most of all, get your EZ Shopper App to make sure that the non-profit of your choice will benefit from all of your online purchases.

 Thank you for shopping and thank you for helping!
