They recently sent out one of their daily tips. The tip was to donate with the click of your mouse to world organizations for aid. It's a great way for your family to help others, especially in this season where you may feel your wallet a little light. Here is the daily tip (you can also read it here):
Can you save the world with the click of your mouse?
The BiteYep - no fancy finger work necessary. Give your index a little rub and go to one of the web's many no-cost donation sites, where just by clicking, you raise money for good causes.
- Digit-al goodwill. These websites are supported by ads; when you click, sponsor dollars go to rain forest conservation, AIDS research, animal welfare, and books for kids, among other things.
- Nail-ing boredom. Still waiting for Perez Hilton to update his blog? Fuel spare minutes into saving the planet.
- It's freakin' free.
Personally SpeakingMany of us have had slow office jobs or internships where we spent half our time IM-ing friends and reading blogs - especially during the holidays. Think of the rain forest we coulda saved if we'd known about this tip back then...
- Add these sites to your web browser's bookmarks, and try making a habit of clicking once a day.
