A click of the mouse can help save lives
It's Aloysius' day to simply be a cat, so I am filling in. For the past couple of weeks, I've taken up your time with "3 annoying things on Tuesday." But today, I have a better idea.
You can help provide free mammograms for needy women with a simple click of your mouse. Just click on over to The Breast Cancer Site and you'll see what I mean.
At the same site, you can also support free food for shelter animals and other good causes.
These sites are funded by corporate sponsors. They count the number of clicks per day and give accordingly. After you click on the appropriate button, you'll see ads for the sponsors' products, but they're unobtrusive. Each individual can click once per day. I'm guessing that the site puts a cookie in your browser cache in order to be able to track your clicks.
But, you ask, is it for real? Does money really go to the charities that these sites name? The answer is yes, according to the Urban Legends site, Snopes.com, and About.com. So take a minute and visit these sites.
