The Hunger Site and associated sites...

Another great site, which I often forget about is The Hunger Site. This is a great site, they have partners who donate money every time a person clicks a button on their home page. You can only click once a day and it REALLY only takes a few seconds to do. A great way to utilize this is to have it set as your homepage, then you can help the world every morning before you even check your email. For the hunger site the money goes to Mercy Corps, Feeding America, and Millennium Promise.

At the top of the website, there are tabs to show the other projects similar to the Hunger Site. There is The Breast Cancer Site, The Child Health Site, The Literacy Site, The Rainforest Site, and The Animal Rescue Site. These all function like the Hunger Site, in that their partners donate money for every click on the button on their home page. All you have to do, is take that two seconds to click a button, let it load the thank you page, with the ads.... and you have helped a great cause. In all it takes less than  twenty seconds to go through all six pages and make a positive impact on the world for the day.

Additionally these site have stores with fair trade and sustainable products, and by purchasing items through their store you can help raise even more money for the causes. So next time you are stressed out, go and buy yourself some Peruvian worry dolls (They are adorable and cute, good for the stressed out people in your life) and support the site or when someone has a birthday, get them a 100% Alpaca Hand Loomed Scarf.

Hope you add this to your daily sites, its just as important as the blogs or comics you read every day.

Thanks and have a great night.
