every-time1As we pass through Christmas and Boxing Day, we reflect on what our consumer dollar does. It is estimated that 70 percent of the American economy based on consumer spending, which means that holiday shoppers have the leverage to use that spending power for social good.

Make 2013 the year to make a difference with your dollar!
