6 Clicks a Day and Charities Get Paid: how to raise money online with just a click

Updated on March 1, 2011

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

      Thanks for sharing this with us. Before this I had only heard of freepoverty.com, but I always wondered, they say on that site that they get their money from the adverts on the page, so surely how well you do in a quiz isn't going to change the impressions etc. and I also noticed that the adverts were of other charities so surely its taking from one charity and giving to another?. Anyway I'm just about to go try out your websites, thanks again!
