Present Perfect

Do you have everything? Do your friends and family complain that you’re hard to buy for? Feel awkward about wishlists? WhatGoesAround.org is for you. Instead of a wishlist, you create a “givelist”–a list of your favorite charities, so your friends and family can give the gift of, well, giving.

The idea is to make giving like shopping:

“Culturally, Americans have developed this incredible culture of shopping, it’s become entertainment, it’s become a major activity, a favorite pastime, but we’re all drowning in stuff,” she said. “People want to do good but it’s a very complicated mix, and we started thinking, what if we could create this site as a shopping site, not as a charity site.”

I’ve started a list here.

Happy Holidays.

    Note: I think these guys are getting hit pretty hard, so sometimes you’ll get a bad page. Just refresh and things come up fine.
