Give back with a click or your mouse

Before my ten minutes of fame tick away, I figured now is a good time to parlay possible new blog traffic on a post I've had mentally queued up all week.

I love that giving back to reputable charities is just a mouse-click away. Following are a few examples that I've recently become aware of, if you know of more please chime in and I'll update this post. In just a few short minutes, you could give back to all three without ever opening up your wallet (of course, if you wanted to open up your wallet...;-)).

Via @monkchips, Freerice.com: Play a word matching game and for each match you get, they donate 20 grains of rice via the UN World Food Program.

Via NASCAR (Kasey Kahne is my driver :-)), Help Chevy Help Autism: Take a virtual tour of the Chevy Malibu via a short video and Chevy will donate to Autism Speaks. I was hoping for information about autism in the video, but as ThinGuy reminds me, you shouldn't look a gift horse in the mouth.

Via Mary, nothingbutnets.net: Play a short game and a malaria-preventing net will be sent to Africa on your behalf. More...



Update: Via John Bennett's comment, AIDtoCHILDREN.com: Similar to freerice.com, it's a word matching game. For each correct match, 1/4 of a cent is donated to children in need.
