Make a Wish true with Donations for Free
When we think about donations we usually think about the money but is this always true? Can we help others when times are so hard like these days when a lot of people have a very strict budget and always at risk of loosing their jobs? How can we help to make a wish to become true helping others without money and if we have very little free time?
Money for Charities
Donations don't always go toward helping others' wishes to become true because sometimes these kind of questions come to mind: "How many dollars really go to those in need?" "Do you know that for every dollar you give to a Charity either by phone or in person usually only 10 to 20 cents go to the people in need?" "Do you know that some Charities Top Managers earns more than one million dollars a year?" Or "Do you know that when FAO managers travel around the world they only go to four or five stars hotels?"
But do donations always have to involve money? If I were to make a wish has it really to be only about money? Is it the same for others? Is there a way to help others without money to be involved? You can bet there is and here are some.
Help Others for Free Poll
Would you help others if this required no efforts or expenses on your part?
Free Donations 1
The most famous site is the Hunger Site where for every click received, no more than one a day per surfer, a cup of rice is given to a hungry one. And what's more they are one of the few Charities who give 100% of money received to charity, not to themselves. This is their promise.
Founded in June 1999 these days they give around 200.000 cup of staple food every day thanks to sponsors who pay for it. And in these years they have given more than 671 million cups of food, which is amazing. It works quite simply, you click on the big yellow button, you are sent to another page where you see some advertisement from sponsors and can see how many cups of food are being given in that week. Of course then if you buy stuff at their shop you give a percentage of your money to the Charity too, but the important thing is that you can donate a cup of food daily without taking a penny from your pockets. Isn't that simply amazing?
And what's even better linked to them you can give free to these others:
Breast Cancer Site: Free Mammograms
Child Health Site: Free Child Healthcare
Literacy Site: Free Books
Rainforest Site: 11,4 square meters of Rainforest
Animal Rescue Site: 0,6 bowls of food to Rescued Animals
Ecology Fund: 70 square feet Rainforest, 4 pounds CO2, 0,4 square feet U.S. Wilderness, 16,5 square feet Mexican Wildlife
Isn't this amazing?
And they are not alone.
Free Donations 2
At Care2.com with the same principle you can help :
And if this is not enough you can even use a Search Engine like Goodsearch which powered by Yahoo gives 50% of its revenue to Charities. Ok, maybe it's not Google, but it doesn't cost you a penny. So maybe it's worth trying. You can help make a wish become true searching for stuff on the net. That's amazing, isn't it?
Surely there are many others on the web, but these three in my opinion are the best, if I find other options I'll keep you informed.
Free Donations 3
To donate money or stuff for free there are other two options:
Toys for Tots, from the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation where you can donate your old toys to children and help in various ways, like volunteering and becoming a drop-off point.
The Environment Site, the biggest independent environmental forum on the net where, like The Hunger Site or Care2Com, you can donate money just by clicking a button, thanks to sponsors.
Money to Charities for Food
Well, I hope I've given you some food for thought about free donations and how to make a wish become true without having to use your own money, there are always ways to help someone else, even free ones. So, now, tomorrow and every day from now go there and give free help to someone else. Every click counts.
