This page includes links to other pages that we've enjoyed or found useful. It's not meant to be exhaustive, just a selection of a few places we really liked. We hope they'll help you. (If you want exhaustive, go to Cyndi's List below.)
DO A GOOD DEED--FOR FREE
You can do a kindness for nothing except a few minutes of your time. You click; the page's sponsors pay. The sites are linked to each other, so you only need to bookmark one of them.
You can make a basic donation once a day by clicking on the main "Donation" button. Pick one, two or more. Or rotate them and help different causes on different days.
The Hunger Site. Donate food to Mercy Corps (international aid) and America's Second Harvest (US aid).
The Rainforest Site. Help preserve the world's rapidly shrinking rainforest by bringing a few square feet of it under protection.
The Breast Cancer Site. You can help fund mammograms for women in the US who can't afford them.
The Child Health Site. Save children's lives and improve their health in a number of ways (described on the site).
The Animal Rescue Site. Help provide food for abandoned or abused animals.
DON'T BE A SUCKER
