The Lowdown



April 30, 2008 Post

Another note from the recently concluded Domain Roundtable conference San Francisco - at a press conference held just before the show opened April 18th, Charleston, South 

Carolina domain investor/developer Stephen Webb announced the launch of a new shopping portal with a charity component at WeAreCity.com. The site, which will serve as the front door to a network of more than 125 related sites, has color coded districts for Shopping, Travel, Entertainment, and Health and Beauty. Webb said that a charitable donation will be made for each purchase made from one of the network's merchants. Those who shop on the site will vote each quarter to choose the charity that will receive that quarter's charitable funding (the first donation is to be made July 1). The current ballot lists the American Cancer Society, Doctors Without Borders and the ASPCA among the organizations shoppers can vote for.

Webb said, “We have been working on this project for almost three years. Our goal has been to enable everyone to give back, no matter how little they have. When I was young,
