Halloween costumes that do some good

With just a week to go, it’s time to admit that your grand plans for making your kid’s Halloween costume are simply an overambitious fantasy. Really, points for good intentions and all, but it’s time to get back to reality.

Fortunately, I’ve got some excellent news. Not only does Costume Studio offer a wide array of costumes (for kids, adults, and even pets) which typically ship the very next day, they donate 100% of the profits to Invisible Children, an organization dedicated to improving the lives of kids in war-torn Uganda. Every single product page shows you the exact donation amount, so you can make your selection based on both cuteness factor and how much good you’re doing.

It’s a win-win-win: You don’t have to pretend you can sew, the kid gets the perfect costume, and you’ve made a difference with your dollars. No tricks involved. -Mir
