I need a credit card for my home-based business and I would like to find one that coincides w/my beliefs. Does anyone have any indeas? By beliefs, I mean, SAHM, gentle discipline, homeschooling, vegetarian, living lightly, etc. I would like to find one, that perhaps donates to anything related to these and other natural living areas. May sound corny, but I saw an ad for a Waldenbooks cc, but then remember they have something to do with Disney and I don't want to support them, if I don't have to.

TIA for any input,

Lori
BTW, I just found this WAHM board and can't wait to surf through.

Maybe one from a community development bank like South Shore Bank? (I don't know if they do credit cards, but it's worth checking) Or maybe a credit union.

You might also be interested in Working Assets long distance service. It is more expensive, but they donate a portion of their profits to charities that you get to vote for each year.

Thank you all for your responses....

Erin.... I checked with PETA and they don't have a credit card yet, but they will be coming out with a debit card soon. Also, they have a phone card.

Jamie....Disney is such a huge organization that monopolizes so much of the entertainment industry as well as retail industry, I just don't think I need to help them any further. I consider them to be so fake (yes I know, I know) and shallow that I can't stand to watch their movies and I hate their clothing line and all the plastic toys, yuck! Also, they are supposed to be a family oriented company, but some of their dealings are not family oriented (I'm talking about their relation to porn not to homosexuality
If you do a "disney boycott" you will be able to find so much more information than I have given (which is basically JMO anyway.
)

Kaelynn, The Anne Geddes cc are really cute. I am thinking about that one. Thanks....

Ragana......I am planning on calling a few local banks, to see what they have to offer. Thank you for the idea!!

Thanks all,
Lori

I'm a little late to this thread, but I have a Working Assets visa for my business...I like them because they give a % of profits each year to charities/non-profits chosen by a vote of the cardholders. On the downside, the working assets cards are managed/underwritten by MBNA, so a big bank is also making $ off of my acct. I don't know of any credit card that isn't somehow related to one of the major banks, so I tell myself that I have the most socially/politically conscious credit card I could find. If you want more info about working assets, here's their site: http://www.workingassets.com
