…You don’t have to be homeless to look like you are?

Le Clochard Quilt Cover

Always dreamed of living on the streets, but can’t stand the cold?

Then check out SZN’s Le Clochard Quilt Cover, a quilt cover and pillowcase set that looks like it’s made from taped together cardboard boxes.

In addition, “The income is used to fund housing projects which prioritize supporting young people in finding work or continuing their education.” so your purchase price goes to a good cause.

…It’s Things Thursday: Causes Charity Gifts?

Causes Charity Gifts

While I don’t think I will ever understand why people spend $1 to send their friend a virtual Facebook gift, I do like the virtual gifts that Causes is selling.

With over 300,000 members, Causes is one of Facebook’s most popular applications. It allows users to donate to a good cause (any registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit or presidential campaign) and then encourage others to do the same.

To give back something somewhat tangible, Causes now allows you to give virtual charity gifts to your friends. Unlike Facebook’s gifts however, these aren’t just meaningless bitmaps.

Each Causes gift ranges from $10 to $200, and includes everything from a pair of blankets from the American Red Cross to an OLPC laptop from the OLPC Foundation.

The cost of the gift is the cost of the real world item, and each gift signifies an actual giving of that item to a real person.

It’s digital meets donation, and I dig the result.
