Buying things for charity

I have mixed feelings about donating to charity – or charity in general – but I don’t know what to think about buying products where part of the money goes to charity.

This week I have seen a couple of items that have made me think about this:

Cherry Blossom Necklace by People Tree, Ā£15 of which Ā£5 go to “fundraise for the communities in Japan affected by the tsunami and help to build a new educational centre in Minami Sanriku to promote sustainability”.

Red Nose Day T-shirts at TK Maxx, designed by Stella McCartney (big fan here).

Any thoughts on charity products?
