LOS ALTOS, Calif. (December 14, 2011) – This holiday season, Catalog Spree is making it easier than ever for millions of shoppers to give back while they shop on their iPads®, in addition to receiving free shipping through participating retail partners. Giving is now another reason why people are downloading Catalog Spree for free: http://catalogspree.com/give-back.
On Free Shipping Day (December 16th), Catalog Spree will donate five percent of all purchases made through the app to Heifer International, which will help those in need around the world. Catalog Spree is the highest-rated catalog app for the iPad® and is the only catalog shopping app that offers free exposure to charities who publish catalogs.
“Luckily, Heifer never charges shipping on its llamas in South America or chickens in China,” said Rich Cason, Heifer International’s director of Internet Marketing. “But we know shoppers will love the chance to get a deal while also helping Heifer move hungry families into self-sufficiency.
Heifer works to end hunger and poverty and care for the Earth. Heifer currently provides livestock, trees, seeds and training in environmentally sound agriculture to families in more than 50 countries, including the United States. Earlier this year, Heifer selected Catalog Spree to feature its 2011 “Most Important Gift Catalog in the World,” which marked the first donation shopping function within an iPad® catalog shopping app.
“We’re committed to giving back to charities such as Heifer and UNICEF,” said Joaquin Ruiz, CEO of Catalog Spree. “Free Shipping Day is the perfect time for consumers to get their holiday shopping done and feel good knowing they gave five percent of their purchase to people in need all over the world.”
Catalog Spree Gives 5% Back This Holiday Season
When consumers shop on Catalog Spree on December 16th, Catalog Spree will give 5% of all purchases from over 150 catalogs to Heifer International. With hundreds of thousands of items, it’s easy to find the perfect gift for family and friends. Shop via the Catalog Spree iPad app or at http://shop.catalogspree.com.
Catalog Spree is proud to work with leading retailers across the country to offer an eco-friendly shopping channel for consumers. From large brands such as Sears, J.C. Penney and American Girl to specialty retailers including Uncommon Goods, Museum Tour and BBC America Shop, Catalog Spree continues to deliver the most positive and highly rated experience on any catalog shopping app. In fact, Ellen DeGeneres recently called Catalog Spree “the shopping app of the year” and the “green way to shop!”
