San Francisco, CA, May 03, 2006 --(PR.com
)-- GoodStorm (www.GoodStorm.com), a progressive e-commerce company, and Working Assets (WorkingAssets.com), a wireless, long distance, credit card and publishing company that donates a portion of its revenue to progressive nonprofits, have teamed up to launch GoodsForChange.com, an e-commerce store where $2 of every purchase is donated to progressive organizations.
The sale of T-shirts and other products at the GoodsForChange.com store will benefit organizations like Planned Parenthood, Doctors without Borders and Greenpeace. The store features the anti-war Bring Them Home Now first-class postage stamp and shirt, and a variety of politically themed T-shirts, including Bush Lost Iraq, Karl Rove Lineup, and Bush Cheney 2390 and Counting.
Yobie Benjamin, GoodStorm founder and CEO, said, “Working Assets celebrates the idea that it’s easy for people to make a difference just through their everyday acts. Through GoodsForChange.com, GoodStorm is honored to join with Working Assets in supporting human rights, economic and social justice, peace, education and the environment.”
Becky Bond, creative producer for Working Assets, added, “We're proud to have GoodStorm as a partner. GoodStorm is doing great work in the world and cares deeply about our mission.”
At GoodStorm.com, progressive organizations and individuals can launch online stores selling digitally printed T-shirts and other products featuring their own designs. GoodStorm handles inventory management, shipping, logistics, and billing, so sellers have more time to create designs and build and nurture communities of people who share their values.
Sellers incur no costs for opening or running a GoodStorm storefront because the e-store tools are free and the shirts are printed and shipped on-demand. Best of all, store-owners keep 70% of the net profit generated from sales — instead of the 20% to 30% offered by other e-Commerce enablers.
Founded by serial entrepreneur Yobie Benjamin and venture capitalist and philanthropist Andy Rappaport, GoodStorm is an economic change agent that empowers organizations and individuals to generate higher income from e-commerce sales. The company develops and provides free tools, technologies and social-networking functionality for sellers to create online stores to market print-on-demand apparel and co-branded merchandise through GoodStorm.com.
