Customers pay the normal price for goods, but the retailer donates a part of the total purchase price to the chosen cause. If people elect not to download the freeware, they can still shop, but the money will be distributed equally between all the charities.www.agoodcause.com has been operational in Scandinavia for more than two years and currently works in eight countries including Denmark, the Netherlands, Italy, France and the US.
