Surf/Click to Donate

Hungersite: donate food with a click of the mouse

The Rain Forest Site: Each click from you raises money that goes to the Nature Conservency's Adopt An Acre program.

The three sites to the left are run by the GreaterGood.com, which says it "provides consumers with the ability to make a difference in the world through their everyday Web-based activities - at no extra cost to them"

They were taken offline because of the slump in internet advertising, but they are now back under new management. Thanks guys!
