Donate to Great Causes for Free!

Updated on July 4, 2014

I Have Written About All the Greater Good Charities - Just Click to Give!

The Greater Good charities are some of my absolute favorite charities, because I love their business model: the donor can click to give which means money goes to the charity without a penny out of the donors pocket! If you are a giving person you know you want to give to many causes but you just can't.

"Click to Give" means that advertisers will give money to the charities every time a donor clicks on the magic buttons. Easy - peasy!

By clicking on Magic Buttons you can help people with autism and breast cancer. You can help Humane Societies across the country through the Animal Rescue society. You can help the hungry and children who are desperate for life-giving health therapies. You can help homeless Veterans get a meal, and buy an acre of Rainforest that is preserved forever. You can make sure poor kids get books of their own that they can hold.

Giving makes my life better - it increases my gratitude for being alive, helps me remember what is important and makes me feel more significant on this planet. I am so glad there are easy ways to give!

Greater Good Network of Charities allows you to give to many good causes every day, even if you don't have any money at all!

Creative Commons per Flickr, a lot of power with a little mouse click.

Sometimes the needs of the world are so compelling that we can feel small, and we can start to numb out. There is no need to do that, there is always something positive you can do. This is a lensography of lens I have written about all of the Greater Good charities, so you can start giving today - at no cost to yourself except the time it takes to click a mouse.

Here is A Lovely Simple Book to Show the Joy of Giving

Learning the joy of giving is a big idea that some adults never learn. Who better to teach it to us than a child?

The Berenstain Bears has warmed the hearts of families for years, maybe because these books were created by artists and authors Jan and Stan Berenstain as a family project and lovingly carried on after their deaths by their son Mike.

The Berenstain Bears and the Joy of Giving
The Berenstain Bears and the Joy of Giving

In this book of the Berenstain Bears series, the Bears are constantly thinking, and talking about what they are going to GET for Christmas. However, during their Christmas pageant something a little special happens and the Bears learn how wonderful it is to GIVE.


Can you Get into the Habit of Clicking to Give

All of these charities in the Greater Good network are wonderful causes. And you can give to them without it costing you a penny.

The Animal Rescue Site

Helps Animals Rescues and Animal Shelters

It is easy for me to remember to click the Animal Rescue Site - because I love animals so much. I also feel passionate about animal rescue, especially since so many are destroyed every day just because there is not a good home for them. The Animal Rescue Site provides valuable resources for shelters, at such a low cost to yourself. That cost is just a click of the mouse!

The Autism Site

Help to Families on the Autism Disorder Spectrum

This was the last lens I published in this series because I did not know much about the topic, and did not want to give people any false information. I found out that autism is a hugely individualized disorder, with the range of intellectual capacity from mentally handicapped to genius, and the ability to function in society individualized as well. I was touched and inspired by learning about people like Temple Grandin and Jason McElwain - who rose above their challenges to give to the world. And I was energized to help the families of those struggling to help their dependent autistic kids even more.

The Breast Cancer Site

A Charity that I Feel Personally Passionate about

I wish that I didn't have such familiarity with the charity this site supports - breast cancer. I have survived breast cancer twice, after going through all the major therapies: chemotherapy, radiation, lumpectomy and finally a double mastectomy.

My cancer was discovered both times in a mammogram. I have great health coverage, and routine mammograms are covered. This is not the case for so many women.

By clicking on the Breast Cancer Site button - you will help many women get mammograms - and that is a good idea!

the Child Health Site - is Project Awesome

The Hunger Site

Click to Give Food to the Needy

I Love My Food! And it makes me so sad to know that in a world where I and many others have to focus on losing weight - others are starving. By clicking on the Hunger Site button you help support charities such as Mercy Corps and Feed America - which bring needy food to people all across the world.

The Hunger Site has been very active in helping people surviving Hurricane Sandy, and it will be there for further catastrophes.

The Literacy Site

Do you love reading? Most Squids do.

Reading opens doors, that is for sure.

Nothing encourages reading like having your own books. Do you want a way to help kids who can't afford them?

Ah clever person! You figured it out! Go visit the Literacy Site everyday and you will be able to give that book - at no cost to yourself.

Veterans Site

Writing this lens was personal for me, as I have veterans in my family who have suffered.

This lens is written to help the veterans in our country who aren't quite making it. Sometimes just a meal means so much.

Won't you click and help veterans?

PS - I was very pleased to learn that I had earned a Purple Star for this lens.
