If I had to pick my three favorite charities, they’d probably be the World Wildlife Fund, Human Rights Campaign, and Toys For Tots, in that order. Easily, the charity which receives the most of my money is the WWF. If I’m a small-time philanthropist, I’m a big-time whatever-the-term-similar-to-philanthropy-but-pertaining-to-animals-is. Seriously, is there a word for that? Zoophiliac has sexual connotations so I’d prefer not to use it. Anyway, the point is that I give a lot of money annually (including regular automatic monthly donations and irregular sporadic donations) to the World Wildlife Fund.
This is why I’ve chosen to “represent” WWF with the SocialVibe widget. For those of you unaware of what SocialVibe is or does, here’s a brief summary directly from their website:
With SocialVibe, individuals make a positive, measurable impact for the charity of their choice just by completing branded activities. In just over a year’s time, the SocialVibe community has raised over $700,000 for over forty different non-profits.
In other words, you and I go to the SocialVibe page, choose our favorite charity, and then complete free quizzes or surveys (which I’ve never seen ask for any personal information) submitted by big-name brands. Those brands then make a small donation to your chosen charity simply because you took a minute (seriously, they never really take longer than that) of your time to complete a quick, simple activity.
With that all said, you may click the widget located at the very bottom of any page, next to the RSS icon, to complete one of those activities. Ideally it’d be in the sidebar, but I’ve noticed that the items in the sidebar are only visible when visiting the main page. In any case, it is what it is. Every little bit counts toward WWF who are working to slow the production of dangerous and harmful greenhouse gases. If you could please just do one activity, as long as you’re visiting my site anyway. Any and all help is appreciated. Thanks!
