Charity Bizarre

It seems that the time for these "Click Charities" has indeed arrived. What started out with I believe "The Hunger Site" has blossomed into full flower with the host of Web sights that I list below in no particular order...

Update: QuickDonations offers a more complete listing than you will find here, showing that my compiling this list was a good idea. I am pleased that they will maintain such a list so that I can get on with other humanitarian works.

With more traditional forms of donation to charity it seems we need to be careful, in all practicality, if donations are solicited then the organization at least "skims the cream before the milk gets delivered" to the folks in need and that is the best case scenario. It could be an out and out panhandling scam. Best to go with folks that are reputable like Samaritans Purse dot org is a kule one or check the USA Freedom Corps clearinghouse for trusted institutions.

Slightly edited version of blurb to be found on therainforestsite.com:
"Please, sign The Rainforest Site Petition, which will be delivered to the United Nations Commission on Sustainable Development this Fall 2000. The petition urges the UN to enforce the international community's political and legal commitments to protect the rainforests. All you have to do is click to sign up - and please remember to pass this e-mail along to all of your friends."

IGive

Click-through for donations to Children's Hospitals across the U.S. and Canada.

If you wish to donate your time in your local area rather than clicks and/or money you might try Helping.org . They have a kule search engine there, simply type in your Postal ZipCode and it will return some suggestions for Volunteer Work .

On the other hand if your contributions need to be online, where you spend a good portion of your time then perhaps getting an ADvert bar might appeal to you. ForMyCause.comô will donate to the charities you choose in exchange for you viewing their advertisements on the " MyBarô " application. Here is the description from their websight "MyBar is a free computer application developed by ForMyCause.comô that you can download and install on your computer. While you are online, you can use MyBar to navigate the Internet, view news and do your shopping. All of these activities can earn money for your favorite Cause. MyBar also brings you messages and updates from your Cause, and it shows ads tailored to your interests [they take a survey/profile] that earn money for your favorite Cause every minute that you are online."

Click Away, if you will, and
Save the World!

I hope this Helps, R
