Wellness Wednesday: Anyone can do Something

Saving the world can take time and money, something most of us don't have much of. For this week's wellness wednesday, I'd like to share with you a couple of ways you can bring a little more good into the world, even if you don't have the time or money for any big changes right now. You've got to start somewhere, right? These links all provide free and "less than five minutes" ways to do some good.

First up, check out Care 2's click to donate program. It's as easy as it sounds. All you have to do is head over to the website, click on the options on the left sidebar, or "start clicking" on the middle photo, and then the big orange "click to donate" button. The funds for these donations are provided by sponsors who's buttons are under the "thank you for donating" banner. Also on Care 2, you can find petitions supporting various environmental and social causes and sign them easily online. 

If you've finished these, click here to go to the hunger site, on the greater good network. This site has the same free click to give system. This time the links are located on the top banner bar. After clicking,  if you feel like shopping, you can browse the site for a variety of fair trade products, and other products donate part of their proceeds. 

Still looking for something to do? Try Free Rice. This site not only donates food to the World Food Programme, it helps keep your mind sharp! For every question you answer, ten grains of rice are donated. You can choose between humanities, english, math, chemistry, language learning, geography, sciences, or even SAT prep! It's great for a "mindless" (Ok so some of these questions get hard!) game, and whens the last time your solitare game fed the hungry?

What do you do when you need a doable way to help?


  1. Wow, some great programs you've written about. I recently wrote about Komen, race for the cure: Thanks for sharing and for helping the world out! xx

  3. I have been a big fan of Free Rice for a long time! Love that nerdy and world-changing site! They should tell everyone about it in SAT prep classes, right?

  4. I've also been a fan of Free Rice! Thanks for stopping by, hope we can keep in touch. :)
