Charities are cash-strapped with the poor economy, but there's a way the public can donate without spending an extra dime.
A website called Goodshop.com allows people to shop online, with a portion of that sale going toward their favorite charity.
"We've partnered with more than 2,500 stores from Amazon to Target to Staples to Sephora to Petco to Expedia, and every time you click through Goodsearch to that store, a percentage goes to your favorite charity or school. You're spending nothing, but doing good by using Goodshop," said J.J. Ramburg, the co-founder of Goodshop.
Several Middle Tennessee charities have already received funds from Goodshop.
The Nashville Cat Rescue earned about $460 through the program. Harvest Hands Community Development Corporation received $463, and the crisis pregnancy agency "Mother to Mother" received $3,610.
