Do-Gooder Companies – Father’s Day Edition

Since I did a Mother’s Day edition of the Do-Gooder Company series, it is only fair to feature some great places to purchase socially responsible Father’s Day gifts too!  Whether the Dad in your life is a sports enthusiast, creative genius, tech geek, or a big kid, you will find some great gift options for him below. Click on any of the images to be taken to the company site for more information or to buy.

Life is good

Life is good donates 10% of net profits to the  Life is good Playmakers, a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to helping kids overcome poverty, violence and illness by using the power of joyful play to heal and strengthen children.   There are a couple things I really love about this company: 1. They offer a consumers a chance to donate to Playmakers at checkout and 2. They have a great fundraising page that allows individuals to become active fundraisers.

And, of course, their products are endlessly fun and good quality.  Here are a couple of my favorites for Father’s  Day, but do check out their website because there are so many more to choose from.  Oh, and if you sign up for their email club, you will receive a 15% off coupon code!

I’ve also written a lengthy opinion on TOMS which you can peruse at your convenience.  I’m not sure The Hubs would love the traditional TOMS shoe style, but I found several things on the site that I think he’d love.  Here are a couple of my favorites:

Red Cross Store

At the Red Cross Store, a portion of the proceeds from every single item is donated to the life-saving mission of the Red Cross.  Every Dad should have an emergency radio and emergency preparedness kit, don’t you think?
