making your time online work for charity

August 1, 2008

The next time you’re searching for something, shun your usual search engine and try searching through Everyclick, Goodsearch or SearchKindly.

Goodsearch allows you to add your own charity, while Everyclick allows you to choose from over 200,000 UK based charities. And just in case you’re sceptical, SearchKindly wants to reassure you!

As for email, why not try Ippimail? (Disclosure: I’ve been using them for a while now. Since you ask, no problems, unless you crave the bells & whistles provided by the likes of Gmail.)

Talk about ethical credentials: 45% of their income raised from advertising goes to charity (a full list of the ones you can support can be found here) and another 10% goes to the Open Source community. You can raise more income for charity if you’re willing to answer some questionnaires.

Click-to-donate sites have been around for quite a while, but as a reminder, here are some of the most notable:

Ecology Fund

The Hunger Site

The Breast Cancer Site

The Animal Rescue Site

The Child Health Site

The Literacy Site

    Here is one more to add to the list. It is a little bit different, more fun, with the possibility to earn even more for charity.
