MagicMonkee.com Shopping Portal Promotes Charities and Ethical Businesses

Logo_6 Another week, another portal that wants to help you do your ethical shopping more easily. MagicMonkee aims "to encourage users to explore the good causes and ethical businesses promoted on the site and find ways in which they can help others."

It looks like a fairly basic search engine page when you first check in but look carefully and you'll see headings for 'Ethical' and 'Give'. The ethical section provides information on a host of ethical business where users can purchase this year's Christmas presents, while also benefiting others and the environment.

This altruism is a result of the two co-founders having personally benefited from the help provided by a number of the listed charities. Katherine Roberts has multiple sclerosis and James Randall survived cancer at the age of four. James Randall says, "Through MagicMonkee, we're hoping to return the kindness people have given us."

You can find out more about MagicMonkee's ethical and charitable stance on the main site and on their MySpace account.
