Save the World With Just One Click|
by Tori Marr
Are you aware that every second, an acre of rainforest disappears? Did you know that more than 24,000 children die each and every day from hunger? Well, if you didn’t know that, you surely didn’t know that more than 10 million animals are abused, neglected or abandoned yearly.
Now that you know, what are you going to do about it?|
If you're anything like me, you want to make a difference in this world. Whether it's through volunteer work, charity or even joining the Peace Corps, making a difference always leaves you with that warm and fuzzy feeling in your stomach. But a problem arises when age is an issue or you simply don't know where to get the information needed to help you on your way. Well, good news, you can help out more than you think and you don't even have to get out of your chair.
Websites like care2.com
and therainforestsite.com are your ticket to a golden halo.
Now, before you start groaning about the annoying process of signing up, let me tell you that absolutely none of that is required, although if you’d like to go the extra mile you can.
These websites allow you to help out the rainforest, the ocean, endangered species and even hungry children… not to mention abandoned pets and breast cancer research. And get this… all you have to do is click your mouse button. Amazing, right? These sites have special "buttons" for your favorite cause, and all you need to do is click them. Companies such as Beaumont, Weight Watchers and PetCare make it possible because they generously sponsor these sites. They donate food, research, habitat and tons more with each and every click.
You have the chance to help. So what are you waiting for? Do it for the spider monkey who lost his treetop home. Do it for the little boy who won’t have any breakfast today. Do it for the woman who can’t afford a mammogram... or simply do it for your self. =)
