The Do-Good Dad: Father’s Day Guide

June 16, 2009

Father’s Day is this Sunday. If you haven’t gotten anything for dear old dad yet, in addition to making a donation to your favorite organization in your father’s name, here are some good gift ideas:

Bid on one of a million amazing things at CharityBuzz. Check out the Dads & Grads auction. From hanging out with Patrick Dempsey at Daytona to meeting Bill Clinton, sitting in box seats at the US Open, watching the Yankees play the Red Sox, taking a swimming clinic with Michael Phelps, or a Kenny Chesney autographed Guitar! There is more cool stuff than I can list here. Just don’t bid on the fishing trip. Ugh.

BREAK THE BANK! If you are loaded, your dad might like a Tesla Roadster (starts at $101,000) or Model S – both electric performance vehicles from Tesla Motors. The Model S is capable of rocketing from 0-60 in 5.5 seconds and traveling up to 300 miles on a single 45 minute charge (starts at $49,900 which is not that bad)!

What are you doing in my bathroom?!

What are you doing in my bathroom?!

There are tons of cruelty-free and organic products out there for the ladies… but what about us guys? If we want to look, smell, and feel amazing without worrying about torturing rabbits, toxic ingredients, destroying ecosystems, or supporting valueless (and brainless) businesses, our grooming arsenals could look something like this. From recycled razors to eye drops, no animals were harmed in the creation of these products: M4Men Hair Removal Introductory Kit (MM) Florame Men’s Organic Eau de Toilette Musk® for Men Eau de ToiletteSplash 4 oz.

Whether you want to thicken some thinning hair, soak your contacts, regulate the PH balance of your skin, prevent or soothe razor bumps, zap zits, smell like autumn, straighten or style your curls, or control dandruff – there is no need to poison yourself, animals or the environment! Unfortunately, many companies continue to use outdated and cruel experiments that are completely unnecessary. Find out more here:
