COMPUTER COOL


(From blog archive...)

Good Search

This site is my home page and search engine. Good Search will donate 1 cent each time you click. The site remembers your charitable organization selection. 55,000+ organizations are already registered. If yours isn’t on the site you can register it in a few seconds. Donations can add up fast. The ASPCA has earned over $12,000.

Be sure to also check out the Good Shop tool. Start from this site when you shop brand names like Amazon, Best Buy, and Travelocity and a percentage of your purchase will be donated to charity. Online shopping has a bonus of comparing prices, saving time, and gas money.

The Hunger Site

This site features click buttons for six different causes: hunger, child health, breast cancer, literacy, the rainforest, and animal rescue. Each click is a donation to that cause. You can also purchase items from the online store.

Ripple

This site funds clean water, food, education, and a $100 loan with your daily click. Ripple also features a search engine. To add to the giving power you can link the Ripple “give” button directly to your blog or Facebook page.

Free Rice

What a fun brain break! For me a good game of computer solitaire helps me declutter my thoughts . Try this fun new vocabulary game, where every correct answer you choose donates 20 grains of rice to an impoverished country. Give somebody around the world a break while you take yours.

Free Poverty

OK – I wasn’t so good at this one. I did much better on the vocabulary game but this is still fun and could be a great way to improve geography skills. You will locate cities and landmarks on a map and the site donates 10 cups of water to a poor country. I liked the feature that still added cups if it was close but not exact.
