I bought this addon recently - it adds some nice functionality to both the front and back end of the site and makes it easy to promote social good and give back. Fully recommend this to anyone looking to do the same.

Thanks Jason.

We've just updated this addon with some new functionality.
- The banner on the home page (one of the two example banners, but you can easily customize your own) will now show the value of the cart and what the donation to the current charity is if there are items in the cart.

- Registered users can now change their selected charity from the checkout page without having to go to their profile or the "charities listing page" to select which charity they want donations applied to.

We also fixed a couple of small bugs and a couple of typos!
