Shopping On A Budget: How to Save Money and Help Denver

posted by:

‘Tis the season of giving and if you’re like me, you’d like to help those in need but your budget is maxed out every single year.  
Enter:, the perfect marriage between great online deals AND giving back at the same time. The concept is simple. Find your favorite brand name products at deeply discounted prices (up to 75% off) on and they’ll automatically donate 10 percent of your purchase price to your favorite school, church or charitable organization.  Part deal site, part fundraiser, and part environmental surrogate, Give10Back offers consumers products and brands they actually want and need at prices they love while supporting causes that are near and dear to them – all while saving the planet!
When I first heard of this company, I thought of purchases I’ve made on AmazonSmile where the behemoth online retailer donates a percentage of eligible purchases to charity but was dumbfounded to learn it was only 0.5 percent of the price of eligible purchases.  Contrast that to Give10Back’s 10 percent donation (on every item including deeply discounted items) and there is no comparison.

What You’ll Find

Give10Back has a great selection of brand name toys & games (Disney, Star Wars, Marvel, etc.), home & kitchen, baby products, designer apparel & shoes, health & beauty, & more. It obviously doesn’t have the sheer volume of options of its competitors but is steadily growing every day.
The signup process took me less than a minute. I then spent about a half-hour perusing the different categories and purchased some fun board games for the kids, a shelf organizer for myself and CamelBak waterbottle for my husband. I price-checked each item and was pleased to find the prices were almost half what they are on Amazon! Plus I love that they offer free shipping for orders over $49. 
Here are a few examples:
Baby Jogger City Mini Gt Travel System In Charcoal $599.99 MSRP
Amazon’s price = $579.99
ONLY $331.49 on! (Save 45% OFF Everyday!) That’s a $268.50 SAVINGS
Playskool Heroes Star Wars Galactic Heroes Millennium Falcon and Figures $39.99 MSRP
Amazon’s price = $25.49
ONLY $19.99 on (Save 50% OFF Everyday!)
Pampers Cruisers Baby Diapers Economy Plus Pack, Size 6, 104 Count $41.58 MSRP
Amazon’s price = $39.50
ONLY $19.99 on (Save 52% OFF Everyday)

How It Works

When hosting a dinner party you know the Golden Rule is to make more than you need, you’d rather have leftovers than disappointed guests. Big Box Retailers follow this SAME rule – they’d rather ‘overstock’ than have empty shelves and disappointed shoppers. takes this excess merchandise (their leftovers) and offers it to you and your supporters for 30%, 50% even 75% OFF. PLUS they donate 10% of every sale to your school, church or charity – every time you shop!


I’d love to live in a world where butterbraids and cookie dough are forever banished.  GiveBack10 offers the easiest fundraisers ever: 1) Do your supporters a favor…tell them how they can save lots of money on 2) Your organization earns 10 percent of every sale. 3) Cash your monthly fundraising check.  The end. Simply download the free customizable marketing templates, use Facebook or Twitter to share the link to your online shopping fundraiser and then sit back and relax. There is nothing to inventory, nothing to fulfill and nothing to track. 
When I made my purchases, there was a drop-down box at check-out where I selected my charity of choice: Denver Children’s Home, which helps kids who have survived trauma, neglect and abuse. I would love to see many more Colorado charities, non-profits and schools in the mix! You can learn more about how to register your cause here
Give10Back’s founder, Walter Engelbrecht, created the company with a goal to give back $50 million to U.S. schools through their unique Give10Back online shopping fundraiser. “We help people save lots of money on things they already buy while giving schools, churches, and charities 10 percent of the sales. I, along with everyone at Give10Back, won’t rest until we’ve accomplished our mission.”
