Help me to help others: Cost of $O and 8 seconds. It’s true. Simple, fun and rewarding – but the main attraction of modern day readers: it’s free.
Yes FREE, and no this is not your average shady international money scheme.
As you may have noticed, I’ve added a Charity Water widget to the blogs sidebar.
By clicking help on the charity widget and answering several questions you can enable those less fortunate access to clean drinking water. For example by answering 6 short questions I gained 186 gallons of clean water to be donated (all within 8 seconds, this is too easy). This program works simply through the questions focusing on advertisement/sponsors i.e. “Out of these two movies which one do you like most?” and the sponsor fee being directed into said charity.
Try it out at least once, you might even direct friends to GiD to do likewise. Alternatively, and just as helpful, is Free Rice – which prompts guests to answer simple questions based on grammar, vocabulary or math and for each correct answer rice is donated. This is superb for the young ones – being granted access to free education in a game format whilst earning real rewards for a good cause.
My ten cents on near-effortless donation and affect, at least try it just once.
