Click for a cause (or two!)

I am starting a new series of posts - Cause Friday.

On Fridays I'll highlight a particular cause that I feel strongly about (and I have many!).

Today I want to bring your attention to two extremely easy ways you can make a big difference - simply by the click of your mouse.

The first is part of the GreaterGood network:

"Welcome to the GreaterGood Network of websites, a family of online activism sites that harness the power of the Internet to help people, animals, and causes in need."

By clicking on any of the following sites, you can access all the rest, but here are the options.  It would take less than 2 minutes of your day (and btw, there are 1440 minutes in a day) and you could do so much good.

The Hunger Site  click here

The Breast Cancer Site click here

The Animal Rescue Site click here

The Veterans Site click here

The Autism Site click here

The Child Health Site click here

The Literacy Site click here

The Rainforest Site click here

And if you're like me, you need a daily reminder.  From each site, you can sign up for one!

Daily Click Reminder

You only need to sign up for one, however, because you can access any cause from any of the others.

And they have awesome gifts that you can buy, to help each cause, and links to other petitions and ways you can help!

The second is Care2.

They also have a Click-to-Donate site.  Same exact premise, and you can also subscribe to get daily reminders.  So, each day, I get 2 reminder emails, one from each cause, directly to my inbox, and I take about 4 minutes to help a grand total of 19 causes (one being a daily action that varies, well, each day).  Wow.  Can't beat that.

Have a particular cause you care about?  From their site, you can even start your own petition.  How cool is that?
