Looking at twitter today bought me to the attention of a new charity program by Google called Chrome for a Cause. Basically all you need to do is to install an extension that keeps track of the amount of tabs you opened in Google Chrome. Every new tab opened results in Google donating some money to the different charity organizations. Hassle free as there isn’t a need to spend time playing any any flash games or word games ( 😉 Free Rice by UN anyone?) Just install the extension and live life as usual!
So if you have a copy of Google Chrome browser installed, there isn’t much of an excuse for not helping out. This event starts from 15 December and ends at 19 December. Just install the extension, surf the web as usual and heal the world :). Yeah, and make it a better place too.
Let us all be united for this good cause fellow online citizens!
“Word Hugger is a Micro Investment website. A micro investment of $60 will earn lots of money back over the ten years that you own your word page for. We offer a 100% money back guarantee, and provide phenomenal support along the way.” ~ About Us – WordHugger
Can you comprehend that? No? Alright I shall try to paraphrase it for you so as to enable you to be able to further understand what WordHugger is all about. If you know about the milliondollarwiki, WordHugger is something similar to that but instead of buying a page, you buy a word! On buying a word you get something like wordhugger.com/your-word-here and you can edit it to your liking etc. Get it now?
Here is the catch. When you buy a word for 60 bucks, some of it, to be exact 50% of the profit earned, will be given to Kiva. Now, what is Kiva? “Kiva is a non profit organization which loans money to entrepreneurs in the developing world. Individuals give Kiva a micro loan of $25 per person they are going to sponsor. Kiva then pools a number of these sponsors together, to collect a sum of $800-1200. Once the funds have been reached, Kiva contacts its micro-finance institutions in different developing countries such as Ghana, Ecuador, Cambodia, and so on, who then loan it to an entrepreneur in that location.”
Sweet? Definitely. Not only are you helping yourself in your business or whatever by buying a word, you’re also indirectly contributing funds for a good cause!
So now what’s up with me being all kind and sweet putting up such an advertisement on my site. Well, besides me finding the site and concept behind it rather cool and innovative (Yes I meant what I say. I swear that I speak nothing but the truth), they are currently running a contest to promote themselves. In that case, this post is somewhat like a submission for the contest. Ha, call me money-minded or what-so-ever, I don’t care. All I want is to win a few bucks for me to spend after my examinations. If you are interested, you can participate too! Here are the details:
