“To develop understanding, you have to practice looking at all living beings with the eyes of compassion. When you understand, you love. And when you love, you naturally act in a way that can relieve the suffering of people.” ~Thich Nhat Hanh, Being Peace.
The Hunger Site
This site features buttons for 8 different causes: hunger, breast cancer, animal rescue, veterans, autism, child health, literacy, and rainforest. The concept is simple: Just click the button for each cause once every day, and the site’s sponsors will make a charitable donation on your behalf. If you purchase an item from the site’s online store, they’ll donate even more. It takes just thirty seconds a day to make a difference in someone’s life without spending a cent –make this site a daily stop. Better yet, make it your home page, so you won’t start a single day without chipping in.
Ripple works exactly the same way as the Hunger Site, funding clean water, food, education, and a $100 loan with your daily click. (Interesting article about Ripple here.)
