Does everyone know about The Hunger Site?
Each time you click on the “free food” button, up to once a day, a cup of food is donated to the hungry. You can just go there, or you can arrange for reminder emails to be sent each day so you don’t, like me, forget. The food is paid for by sponsors; this is a legitimate Real Deal thing–check out their About page for more info. If you work from multiple computers, you can click on it once per computer per day. (It doesn’t give you extra spam or messages unless you ask for them.)
What a lot of people aren’t aware of is the online store attached to the site, full of fair trade goods and just generally really nice stuff–clothes, jewelry, home goods, and stuff like that. I do a really large amount of my Christmas shopping there, and I’ve never been disappointed in a purchase. (Note: I don’t think it’s all fair trade; there’s a button to click for that.)
Take a look…
(p.s.–there are tabs across the top for other causes–breast cancer, children’s health, literacy, rainforest, and animal rescue–you can click on each tab once a day to contribute to these various organizations…)
