Chrome For A Cause

Are you using Chrome to browse the web?  If you are not, why not? :)

If you are, the Google Chrome team is donating money to charity every time you open up a new tab in Chrome between Dec 15 - 19.  They are donating up to a million dollars.  Here is what your tabs can do:

  • 10 tabs = 1 tree planted
  • 10 tabs = 1 book published and donated
  • 25 tabs = 1 vaccination treatment provided
  • 100 tabs = 1 square foot of shelter built
  • 200 tabs = 1 person's clean water for a year

See this blog for details: Browse For A Good Cause

Then install the Chrome extension: Chrome For A Cause , then start browsing!  At the end of each day you can select one of 5 charities to donate money too.  Not to shabby, and an easy way to be a good samaritan.

Note: If you are not running Chrome, you can download it here: Chrome Web Browser .  It is fast, secure, and free, and it runs on almost every OS you are probably using.
