Valentine's Day is just around the corner, and what a polarizing holiday it is!  Some people love it, some people hate it, and some people (like us) think it is just another day to do something good for the world.  Here are a few ideas to brighten up your Monday Valentine:
  • Causes will allow you to do your Valentine's Day shopping online and donate $10 to your favorite charity at the same time.
  • is highlighting the plight of forced child labor and conflict diamonds by asking consumers to sign a petition to ensure better standards in the mining industry.
  • charity: water and Kwiat have teamed up to create a beautiful diamond waterdrop bracelet; all profits from the piece will go to fund charity: water and their water projects.
  • (RED) has a number of products you can buy for your Valentine, and profits from each purchase will be donated to The Global Fund.
The Case Foundation also has some ideas of how to celebrate Valentine's Day in a charitable way, but luckily these are all fantastic ways to do good all year round.  No matter your relationship status, definitely give some LOVE to the world.
