Do Good without Doing Much

Help out various causes without going too much out of your way.

Blackle 

The idea behind this website is that the entirely black screen does not take up as much energy as the classic white Google screen. It works the same as the Google search engine, it just does so in a different color.

Free Rice

Free Rice is an entertaining way to help fight hunger and improve your vocabulary at the same time. Answer vocabulary questions. For each question, you donate 10 grains of rice through the World Food Programme.

Free Kibble 

Free Kibble is very similar to Free Rice except you can only donate 10 pieces of kibble per day. They have a section for both dogs and cats.
