Pay It Forward: Click to Give

Ever wish you had millions billions trillions (is there more than trillions? Gazillions?) of dollars to just GIVE! We wish we had heaping tons of money to simply give away and make the world a better place. However, as we all know, giving isn't just about money. Giving can be done through time, sensitivity, kindness, love, smiling, laughing, supporting, and a slew of other things. Enter clicking! It's all you have do to. With the click of your mouse, you give. And, you can give to the charities of your choice. With the click of a mouse you can even give to charities that aren't your choice. The coolest part of clicking is that it's user-friendly and non-judgmental. Let the clicking take you away.

Why click? Some wonderful companies and organizations will donate to non-profits based on a simple stylish click (or not-so-stylish, whatever you wish) of your mouse. You should try it. You should click. You can pay it forward in a millisecond, in your pajamas, teeth unbrushed, and hair a mess. You can help change the world before you ever crawl out of bed. Just click it!

Here's where you can clickity-clack all day long!

PART I OF CLICK TO GIVE: For the Environmental Clickers*

  • A Click for the ForestHonestly, we need our Swedish speakers to help translate this site for us, but the gist is that you'll help save forest with the click of your mouse. It's a legit site and focus as a recipient of 1% For the Planet.
  • Click to Aid: These wonderful folks provide "social and employment assistance to help those less fortunate in the South West Community Development (sidenote: we don't really know if this is the south west of a state in the U.S. or the whole South West of the world or the South West portion of the United States, regardless, you click through online games and for every 100 points you score, 10 cents is donated to the South West District).
  • Clicks for Carbon Fund:  "Your free click generates donations from our sponsors. You may click once a day, every day. 100% of the donations raised go directly to, which supports renewable energy, energy efficiency and reforestation projects globally that reduce carbon dioxide emissions and the threat of climate change."
  • Land Care Niagara:  With your help we can make a difference in land conservation. Every time you and your friends click, trees can be planted to restore Niagara's fragmented forest ecosystem. As part of the Niagara Natural Heritage Corridor Program, these trees will help restore Niagara's ecosystems that provide clean air and water for all while providing much needed habitat for wildlife and endangered species. You can visit this site EVERY DAY to plant more trees in the Niagara area! Whew-whoo!
  • Plant An Oak TreeNavigating this site is easy-breezy! You click on the picture of the oak tree, they plant an oak. Awesome!
  • Red Jellyfish: "Visit everyday and click on the "Save Rainforest" and "Feed Chimps" buttons.  When you do, our sponsors' banners will appear.  We donate the money generated from these advertisers to caring for primates and saving rainforest.  It's easy, fun, and has saved millions of square feet of rainforest, and helped some very needy chimps."
  •  The Ecology Fund: Simply click their project buttons to preserve land for free! In fact, if you join one of their wonderful groups (for free) at least 500 feet of land will be donated in your name! "EcologyFund is owned and operated by The Hunger Site Network as a way to get new funds for critical habitat and wilderness preservation using the power of the internet. When you "click to give" our sponsors pay the project you selected to preserve the number of square feet shown by each project. You pay nothing. To maximize the contribution, click on each project every day. If you register, The Hunger Site Network will donate 500 square feet of wilderness in your name, and will keep a running tally for you of all the land you have preserved."
  • The Environment Site:  "To help protect the environment at no cost to yourself simply click the button below. Our system only allows you to click once per day so bookmark this page and come back everyday to do your part. All money raised goes to the Surrey Wildlife Trust"
  • The Nature Conservancy:  "Your free click generates donations from our sponsors. You may click once a day, every day. 100% of the donations raised go directly to The Nature Conservancy, which has protected over 119 million acres of land and 5,000 miles of rivers worldwide since its founding in 1951" (Nature Conservancy, 2012).
  • The Rain Forest Site:  Simple: You click. Sponsors pay. Habitats are protected. You feel good. The world is better. Yippee!
  • The Solar Site: Your click is converted to 1KW of solar energy (we don't know exactly what this means, but it must be better than 0KW, right?)
 Clicking never sounded so beautiful!

  7. Such a fantastic post! So many times the blinders get put on and people just don't see the opportunities sitting there right in front of them. Hope you have a great weekend! 

  8. I came across this quote from Amelia Earhart today and thought of See Beautiful: " "No kind action ever stops with itself. One kind action leads to
    another. Good example is followed. A single act of kindness throws out
    roots in all directions, and the roots spring up and make new trees. The
    greatest work that kindness does to others is that it makes them kind

  9.  LOVE this! we're going to turn this into a post. It's too good not to do so. Thank you!
