Catalogs.com

Imagine a world where the only catalogs you received are the ones you requested.
Now imagine one starting place to find and preview the world’s best catalogs and either request the ones you want or shop at their online stores – plus find special savings offers too.
For over a decade, Catalogs.com has been helping shoppers find and order the perfect catalogs for the products they want – all free of charge. But you’ll only get what you request — order a Sears catalog and get a Sears catalog. We won’t send you an LL Bean, Lane Bryant or FAO Schwarz catalog too.
There’s never a charge for our service, there are no memberships and most importantly, we DO NOT share your name, address or e-mail address with anyone except the catalog company from which you requested to receive a catalog or special offer.
We encourage you to read about each catalog before you decide to order it so you can choose only the right catalogs for your shopping needs. And in most cases, we offer a link directly to the company’s online catalog, so you can start shopping even before your print catalog arrives in the mail.
We now offer access to over 500 print and online catalogs – from the world’s largest retail companies to specialized companies providing unique and hard to find items. The catalogs featured on Catalogs.com have been carefully reviewed and selected as the best in their class so you can be confident you are shopping from only the most reputable merchants. We stake our ten year reputation on that!

It’s called HeroicStories. Here’s its mission:
“Begun in 1999, HeroicStories brings diverse, international voices to the world – reminding us that people are good, that individuals and individual action matter. Our mission is to publish examples of people being good to each other, to inspire similar heroic actions in others.”
Yes, despite what regular watchers of the news might deduce, the fact is that there are some real heroes out there among ordinary individuals. Here’s an example:
“Klansmen burn a cross in the yard of a Mississippi civil rights worker. She scares them off… then brings her children out to toast marshmallows over the burning cross.” Very nice. Those kids probably won’t be scarred by hatred.
