The holiday season makes me think of less fortunate folks who need our help. Use your computer and make a difference with a click of a mouse at these sites (no purchase necessary):
http://www.goodsearch.com/: the site donates about a penny per search to any one of 83,000 nonprofits you choose. GoodSearch.com partners with more than 1,000 retailers, donating up to 30% of the purchase price to the cause of your choice.
http://www.freerice.com/: the site feeds the hungry as you build your vocabulary. For every word you define correctly, this UN-World Food Programme site donates 10 grains of rice to countries coping with hunger. This has amounted to 68 billion grains of rice so far.
http://www.freekibble.com/: the site gives food to dogs in shelters when you correctly answer a daily trivia question.
http://www.freekibblekat.com/: same for kitties.
Breast Cancer site: click to give a free mammogram.
I put the icons on my desktop and click throughout the day - put it right on top or next to one you use every day, then you won't forget. If there are others I should add to this list, please comment on the blog or email me so we can spread the aloha around the world.
