A new shopping app has arrived on the scene that aggregates all your favorite stores, offers coupons, and even donates a percentage of most of your purchases to your favorite charity.

The app is called Goodshop, and is available for iOS.

Last month alone, the Goodshop Website had 4 million visitors. Based on this success, the new app was recently rolled out. So far, more than $11 million has been raised for 110,000 charitable causes.

You can choose which cause to support from a list of schools and nonprofits in the United States.

Donations can be made to large organizations (such as the ASPCA and Stand Up For Cancer) as well as smaller causes such as a local food bank or school.
