Give back with a click or your mouse
By lskrocki on Apr 11, 2008
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.
