Color for a Cause

While shopping online for those last few holiday accessories and gifts, I found that web shopping search site TheFind is making a donation to Doctors Without Borders of $1 per day for each person who searches for something red. There's over 36,000 items in the search results for "red chair" available and each item's pricing information from many online sellers is included in the results. As a bonus, I've discovered several new selling sites while hunting for a few nifty finds.

Red refrigerators, red lamps, red pillows. The pictured lamp is by Murray Feiss and has a red amber finish to its mod teardrop design. The chairs are both models, one a Vitra miniature of a 1918 Rietveld piece, the other a resin dollhouse version.

TheFind has committed to a $10,000 donation to the humanitarian organization this holiday season as a way of announcing its new "seach by color" option. Don't like red? After you click to donate, try "charcoal modern" on for size.
