6 Clicks a Day and Charities Get Paid: how to raise money online with just a click
Have you heard of the Greater Good Network?
Every day, you can log onto a website, click on a button, and generate donations for child welfare, rainforest conservation, breast cancer screenings, and homeless animals. The Greater Good Network is a series of awareness websites that has donated over 20 million dollars since inception in 1999. And all they need is your clicks! Their sponsors take care of the rest!
For years I have been logging onto these sites daily, in less than 10 seconds a day, you can contribute to the donation of valuable resources to charities in need. No Spam, no phone calls, no mail, no strings attached. I choose to receive a daily "reminder" in my email to click, just in case I forget (check the site, where you can sign up for reminders on only weekdays, or all 7 days a week, default is no reminder at all). The websites associated are The Hunger Site, The Child Health Site, The Literacy Site, The Breast Cancer Site, The Animal Rescue Site, and The Rainforest Site. Every time you click on the button (once a day per IP address) the sponsors of the site will contribute money to the Greater Good Network. You can click once on each site (6 clicks total).
The site also has a store, where proceeds go to charity. They sell handmade goods from artisans in need of work. They also sell packages (great for gifts) such as clean childbirth kits for mothers in Burma ($15), a year of school lunches for an AIDS orphan ($18), a pair of goats for a family in Rwanda to give them a means of nutrition and revenue ($60), spay/neuter and vaccinate a stray dog in Chile ($20), or pay a midwife nurse's salary for a week in Nepal ($25).
The network was originally founded in 1999 by environmentalists Tim Kunin and Greg Hesterberg.
Below are some numbers to show just how much one click a day can contribute to those in need!
303,022 children helped in 6 months from clicks alone
1,077 mammograms donated in 6 months from clicks alone
32.3 million bowls of food for shelter animals in 6 months from clicks alone
180,984 books donated in 6 months from clicks alone
24.3 million cups of food for the hungry in 6 months from clicks alone
208.9 million square feet of habitat protected in 6 months from clicks alone
Now it's 7 clicks a day! The Greater Good Network has just added The Veterans Site to raise money for meals for homeless veterans!
