Click a Day Charity Site

I have these all in a Firefox bookmark folder and all I have to do is 'Open All in Tabs' to bring them all up at once. It's a small thing, a cup of food, part of the cost of a breast exam or a book, but it all adds up. In my mind, doing a small almost microscopic thing is better than doing nothing.

Since there is no cost except for a few seconds of my time, I have no excuse.

BTW, each site does have a (sometimes themed) gift shop. Personally, If I see another cutesy cat tchotka advertised on the Animal site, I may have to pass that one over.

Autism does not have it's own domain.

Great idea. But how do you know how each organization spends it's money, how much goes to doing what they say they are going to do to meet it's organizational goals and how much goes to "administrative costs"?

Since at the simplest level all that is required is a mouse click, my feeling is that the risk is worth the cost which is zero.

You are correct that I would be very disappointed to find that they are not making the promised donations tied to purchases I make, or that the 'fair trade' items they sell are made in sweatshops.

Unfortunately, it is difficult to verify the claims of every 'ethical' company.
