"Click to give" sites allow individuals to "donate" money online by clicking a button on a page with ads, and the advertiser giving money (based on the number of clicks) directly to a charity designated by the site. Too good to be true? Possibly.

Yes clicking is definitely not enough, we must do more but many people can't either through illness or poverty, so clicking is better than nothing.
i learnt a new word!!
"Slacktivism = The act of participating in obviously pointless activities as an expedient alternative to actually expending effort to fix a problem."

Thanx for the article Rosie

Animae! Thank you for sharing that brilliant new word! Thank you to all of you for noting and sharing. Yes, we are lucky that Care2 holds a click to donate site and there are other bona fide sites where much good can be done at the click of a button - but like all sites that generate fund for any given cause, they can be subject to fake set-ups and fraudulent claims. I think we know the click sites that can be trusted - and more especially if any are in a poverty trap, or disabled and feel the need to do something for others, it is very important that their time is not wasted on worthless click sites that only generate funds for the scammers.

I agree with Animae. I donate to certain shelters, and also click. It is time consuming as I click on many sites, but I do it while watching tv or sitting outside enjoying the sun.

Noted. Thanks for sharing. I click every day I possibly can - also on naturavet.se, landcareniagara, ecologyfund.com and the greatergood.com/hunger, breast cancer, animal shelter etc. etc. websites. I also give to charities in various ways. We've all got to do what we can, all the time the rainforest is disappearing, people are starving, animals are treated cruelly or abandoned, etc. etc.
