The Internet is the most powerful tool in the world. It connects people, empowers people, and educates people. It enables people of all backgrounds to come together and make a change. There are even ways to do it for free!
Below are 3 super easy ways you can make the world a better place.
This app is super cool. It donates to a charity when you exercise! All you need to do is download their app and sign up with your email! Then you pick a charity to support.
They have about 30 charities and organizations, including Habitat for Humanity, The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, and the World Wildlife Fund. This is something super easy you can do if you run all the time!
Or maybe, it will help motivate you to get into running, or to push yourself for that extra 5 minutes. You can even use it just taking a short walk. Whatever amount of activity you do, this is a super easy way to donate to charity. And it doesn’t cost you a cent!
This is a website I discovered back in middle school. It’s a free site with multiple choice questions about almost every primary/secondary school subject, including SAT Prep. As you answer more questions, the UN World Food Programme donates rice to fight hunger. You study, they eat! All of the subjects come at different levels so anyone can use it.
This is probably as easy as it gets. When you buy something on AmazonSmile, a percentage of your purchase will benefit the charity or cause of your choice at no extra choice. And yes, items are still eligible for Prime. On Smile-Eligible purchases, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of your purchase. This may not seem like a lot, but over time it will definitely add up. Millions of purchases are made on Amazon every day. Imagine the impact it could have if even half the people buying on Amazon did this! Plus, you don’t have to do anything! Just type smile.amazon.com and shop as you would!
For a long time I always thought I could never change the world because I didn’t have enough money or time. I now know that that’s not true. The Internet has made it easier than ever to have an impact for free! Plus it comes at zero change to your lifestyle (unless you’re looking to run more, then hey! There’s some motivation!)
Keep these in mind next time you shop, run, or study. You’ll benefit yourself and others in the process.
What kinds of charities do you donate to?
