A few weeks ago I was comparing the various shop for good sites out there and I realized that they all look very much alike and need some differentiation. Well here’s one that I’ve tried out that’s definitely different – Shop Causes. Unlike the other sites, Shop Causes is a Facebook application, making it super easy for you to help spread the word about an idea that I think has a lot of merit. You can also see which of your friends have used the application, and see which causes are the most popular – 2 things that you can’t do with the other sites.

Shop Causes also has 2 cool promotions going on right now. When friends you refer in Facebook raise $20, your cause receives an additional $5. And if you Tweet about your Shop Causes purchase (with @shopcauses or #shopcauses), $0.25 will be added to your cause automatically AND you’ll be entered into a draw for a $200 Apple gift certificate. It doesn’t get easier or more fun than this!

Shop Causes was started by Michael Levitt of Cyperplex and is based in Toronto. I think it’d be great to partner with them for Charity CHAMPS. So try it out and let me know what you think!
