An easy way to give...How awesome is this?

Have you heard of these sites? I've checked them out on and they are legitimate. You really can help others from your home spending time on your computer. It's really that easy.

I started going there years ago when I first heard about it and went every day. Then somewhere along the way, I forgot about it, but recently found it again. All you have to do is click on a button on the website and the sponsors pay for 1.1 cups of food to be given to the needy. There are also links there to click and help with literacy, breast cancer, child health, the rainforest and animal rescue.

I just found out about this one. It's a game, a learning opportunity and a way to give all rolled into one. It's a vocabulary game that rewards you with grains of rice for each correct answer. The rice is distributed by the United Nations World Food Program. Some school teachers are even giving extra credit to students for using the site. You can change the subjects of the questions also (Spanish, art...).

You know you sometimes waste time on the computer anyway, so why not use a little of that time to help others. (I took the photos in Ecuador, but the food goes all over the world.)
