IndieDoGood.com connects innovative, independent entrepreneurs with consumers in one, very-easy-to-use website! I love that every purchase on the site includes a “do-good” … a 5% donation of the total purchase price to your favorite charity. We are focused on supporting other small business and entrepreneurs who are working to live their dreams and striving to reach their goals. I absolutely love the heart and soul behind Indie Do Good and what they stand for.
Did you know that currently, 75% of consumers age 22-36 consider it very important to support brands that give back to society, and 37% of those same consumers are more likely to buy items associated with a particular cause, especially the causes that they and their friends support?
I love that focusing on supporting brands that give back is such a huge thing! We can all make daily decisions that help support our neighbors and people around the world.
