Thank you, Irene. Hope this helps. Barking Mad is a non-profit organization in South Africa where you can click for free and every click donates one bowl of food. So what're you waiting for? Go BARKING MAD!!! Arf!!! Arf...rrrrrruf!!

Thank You for your click. Today, you have helped give the value of .1 bowl of food to shelter animals around South Africa . The kind sponsors below make The BarkingMad feeding programme possible.

Why do you think that? That would be extremely generous of them if it were true, but all I saw was that "7 bowls of food have been given today" and "your click HELPED donate one bowl of food to animals". The word on there was "HELPED"... sounds like a fraction of a bowl of food, rather than a complete bowl.

A few years ago, I compared the fraction of a cent donated with each click on a "click-to-donate" website, with the amount of money earned by a person spending the same amount of time working for money (and then using that money for the same causes). I found that working for money is more effective, so I don't bother with "click-to-donate" stuff anymore. (Though I did give this website a try, in case it was more generous. With the ambiguous wording, I don't believe it is any different to the others.)

Thnx for your opinion Simon, here's mine. So my wording was off, I wrote it up in a hurry. Does this mean you believe "click-to-donate" "stuff" here at C2 isn't worth it? And who's to say that if enough people click at barkingmad it won't help?

Simon wrote: "all I saw was that "7 bowls of food have been given today". What I saw: "218002 bowls of food have been donated, 908 bowls of food have been donated today." There is a saying on the island where I live..."One, one, fills the basket." One click will do nothing, but collectively hundreds and thousands of clicks will fill many bowls of food. I am happy my click will provide "only" a fraction of a bowl, because others peoples clicks will make it whole. Thank you for this information. I will add this one on to my other website clicks.

I think Simon has made some good points. I have wondered about the time efficiency of the click vs financial donation comparison myself, but hadn't got so far as to work out some numbers.

Perhaps another way to think about this is that people can make financial donations (as reasonable for them), and also do free clicks to donate. The free clicks to donate are easy and can be fun to do as well. I'd also perhaps note that the benefits of financial donations might be tempered by the manner in which that money is earned.

It appears that each click on this site donates around 0.1 bowl of food. I can see how someone would think it was 1 bowl instead, because it says ".1" and the decimal point looks a bit faint.

Best wishes to all.

Monica D (580)
Friday January 29, 2010, 6:23 pm
Eg if a highly paid person works for a company running all coal-fired power stations, then donates financially to Greenpeace, perhaps it would be better for the world if the person took a lower-paying job researching renewables technologies, and did the free clicks to donate instead. I am not sure about this. It may be rather complex.

Noted, clicked and added to my daily clicking list that includes a French site where you can click on its right side, 3 times for each cause (36 all together!): 1. ; 2.; 3.; 4. (children's hospital) and many more.

I hope that a joint effort from all the daily clicking on all available sites, does make a difference. I cannot donate otherwise, so I hope that I do contribute via this tool.

Thank you Barb, Blessings to you and a prolific, peaceful week to all.

Thanks in advance.

Hi All,

I found the Barking Mad on Facebook and sent them a message telling them the same thing. This is what they told me:
"Hi there, our website and emails are down, we are working round the clock to get it back up again 😞 "
I told them that I'd keep trying and wished them luck with getting it back up and running.

So, I'm not sure why they are having website troubles but just hoping they get it back up soon.

Finally a click-for-food initiative that is NOT sponsored by VIVISECTORS like Procter&Gamble, Blue Bison, Mars, etc., unlike too many others INSANELY published and supported on Care2 by people who pretend to be animal lovers and are not so much in good faith, as I had sadly to recognize some weeks ago.
