How can you help others just being online

Understandably the primary use of technology should be for the betterment of the quality of life around the world, and the Internet is helping achieve it. Especially in the 3rd world countries where the basic necessaries of people are not completed, the penetration of the Internet is not really the priority and thus it is not able to help out people.

As a symbol of the human ingenuity we have however come up with simple but effective ways to be able to help people in those 3rd world countries, not directly though. So do you wanna join in as well, so here is a list of a few websites that do a lot of charity based on how much time you spend on their site.

http://www.freerice.com/ This amazing site provides 10 grains of rice to charity when you get a small quiz which is on their site. The site has daily stats for the rice they donate as well and yesterday Jan 22, 2010 the stats were

78,719,470 grains of rice donated and Over 73 billion grains donated to date

The great thing about this website is the fact that not only is the site doing a lot of good, but with the Quiz that are there on the website they help learn various educationally required material as well, such as Language Learning, Math, English, Geography, Chemistry and Art. It is really helpful in more than one type of education, the more important being that everyone should do something good for the planet.

http://www.thehungersite.com/ is another great site for charity, where they give away 1.1 cups of food for every click that you would register per day. The site is going one step further and has a store with produce that is created by the people in the countries that are suffering from calamities or in certain cases war.  In a 12-month period they donated over 43 million cups and it only takes a second for each person to do and costs nothing!

The great part of the site is that you can go to related sites (breast cancer, child health, literacy, rainforest, and animal rescue) where you can click and sponsors donate acres of rainforest, mammograms, etc. By shopping at the sponsors’ sites, even more will be donated to the causes.

Another way to give to charity without spending any money is to use certain search engines. Whenever you do a search, the advertisers pay to a charity – usually you choose which one before searching.

Here’s a site that lists a few of these search engines:
