Donate each day by simply clicking on the following sites: Children, Pets, Wildlife, Rain Forests, Global Warming and more

The Care2 site allows a person to click each day for any or all causes, providing sponsor-paid help to each (help sponsor a hungry child, save 7.4 square feet of rain forest, protect 11,000 square feet of big cat habitat, support lifesaving research, etc.). The site also allows you to collect 'Butterfly Points' by commenting on posts, signing a petition, sending an e-card, etc.


These can also be exchanged to benefit charities (a day of safe drinking water for a child, offset a pound of carbon, bottle feed a kitten, plant a tree, etc.). The site also provides lots of news, tips, and other ways to help.

The Animal Rescue Site: Animal Rescue, Child Health, Rain Forest, etc.

These sites allow you to click each day for children, animals, literacy, rain forests, breast cancer and hunger. Each click helps to provide health care and books to needy children, mammogram for women and food for hungry people and animals. These sites also have stores where each purchase provides support to the charities. So, as you are doing necessary shopping, you can also be supporting a favorite charity.

Help charities without breaking the bank. Enjoy.

I choose a good charity by having a local and personal touch. Are they helping my neighbors? Your local church should be a great place to help your community. A good organization should give most of what you give to those in need and not to their pay checks. Each organization is required to tell you a break down of where the finances are going. Administration costs should be very low so that the people that are in need, get the most benefit.


Donate your old clothes. Buy an extra can of food at the grocery store to give away and don't forget about the hurting pets, they can use a helping hand also. Local food banks and soup kitchens are great. If your neighbor is going through a rough time, give food cards, or pay an electric bill.

I find that when you help those who are hurting, it brings great joy into your life and will come around to you if ever a need comes up in your own life. It is always good to help a neighbor.

I support a local project called Project Love and Care. It was started by one lady after the police knocked on her door in the middle of the night with 2 of her grandchildren.


Ann doesn't like her group to be called a charity, but it runs on donations.

This tip is regarding charity solicitations via telephone. I've recently been contacted by a telephone solicitor to contribute to a Children's Leukemia Foundation and the envelope arrived today.
