Things We Love – Tickets for Charity

We love companies that are able to run a for-profit enterprise while still helping the world, and is one such business model.

This site allows you to get great event tickets – while helping charities raise needed funds.

Created by a founder of Priceline, Tickets-for-Charity buys great seats at everything from Broadways shows to sporting events to live music performances –  and then sells them via the TicketsforCharity website, adding a donation ($10, say) to the price.

The donation for each event goes directly to a particular charity (including Big Brothers Big Sisters of America, Boys & Girls Clubs of America, CARE,  and United Way for America. See more Partner Charities. ). The artist designates a charity for each event, but you’ll also typically get the opportunity to choose additional charities to benefit from the purchase.

This way, you get some of the best seats available, and – instead of paying extra to those unauthorized ticket brokers or, ew, scalpers, for those great seats, you’re supporting a worthy cause. Cool, huh?
