    I came across these in my AARP magazine:

    goodsearch.com allows you to make a donation to your favorite charity (about a penny per search) every time you initiate a web search. It's easy to create a shortcut for your desktop to make it easy to do.

    goodshop.com partners with more than a thousand retailers and they donate a percentage of the purchase price to your charity

    freerice.com feeds the hungry, and builds your vocabulary at the same time. For every word definition you get right, they donate rice to the hungry

    freekibble.com gives food to dogs in shelters when you correctly answer a daily trivia question

    freekibblekat.com does the same thing for cats in shelters

    So, a few fun things to do and a way to SEARCH (which we all do!) to benefit others. Every little bit helps charities nowadays.

    If you know any woman currently undergoing chemo, please pass the word to her that there is a cleaning service that provides FREE housecleaning - 1 time per month for 4 months while she is in treatment. All she has to do is sign up and have her doctor fax a note confirming the treatment. Cleaning for a Reason will have a participating maid service in her zip code area arrange for the service.


    The Cleaning for a Reason Foundation is a non-profit agency that "offers free professional housecleaning and maid services to improve the lives of women undergoing treatment for cancer any type of cancer." Since 2007, the Texas-based group has been connecting cancer patients in the United States and Canada with cleaning firms who offer their services for free to cancer patients.
