I’ve been shopping online for years and I actually like it better than shopping in a store. There’s so much more selection online and I often can find better deals. One place in particular that sparked my interest is Patchwork Road. Their Meaningful Marketplace speaks volumes about the kind of business they are. Let me explain.
Patchwork Road’s Meaningful Marketplace is the first of its kind. Not only can you find exclusive deals on products you won’t find anywhere else, but you can also make a difference with each and every purchase you make. They donate at least 10% of the item’s price to a cause of your choice. So not only do you get the item for your own benefit, but you are also making a difference to a cause important to you.
This charitable aspect of the Meaningful Marketplace definitely makes me want to choose Patchwork Road as a site I shop on. I’m definitely more likely to purchase when I know that I’m supporting something I believe in.
Currently they have more than two dozen non-profit causes that you can support. The list is growing daily. Here’s just a sampling of the causes you can find:
- Royal Family Kids (Autism Treatment)
- Laura’s House (Domestic Abuse)
- Art Feeds (Child Education)
- Mercy House (Homelessness)
- Finding Freedom (Human Trafficking)
- Project Get Safe (Crime Prevention)
- Warrior Foundation (National Heroes)
Variety of Products on Patchwork Road
From a shopping only perspective, Patchwork Road features hand-picked products at amazing prices that you won’t find anywhere else. Often times the products are made exclusively for sale on Patchwork Road by brands that believe in their Meaningful Marketplace. Many of these products haven’t even been released to the public yet, so you can buy them on Patchwork Road first. They carry a variety of products from gadgets and accessories to home and fitness.
