What is RSS?

RSS stands for "Really Simple Syndication." RSS makes it easy for you to receive news and other updates from Care2 and the organizations you trust.

How does it work?

When you use a program called an RSS Reader, it automatically updates every hour or so to keep you informed on the topics you care about. You don't need to visit any website or deal with email spam - it's like your own personalized news service.

Care2 publishes action alerts and information from our nonprofit partners. When you subscribe to our RSS feeds, your RSS reader will alert you to the most recent urgent actions, updates, and success stories on the issues that concern you the most without you visiting our site or logging into your account.

How do I use Care2's RSS Feeds?

Clicking on one of our orange XML buttons will likely display an unreadable page. This is because RSS feeds are designed to be viewed by specific software programs called RSS Readers. You can read Care2's RSS feeds either through a stand-alone RSS reader, or via your email client or browser using RSS reader plugins (see below). There are also websites which display RSS feeds (such as My Yahoo). Once you install the reader of your choice, click on the XML button next to the feed you want to receive. Then copy that URL into your reader - you can subscribe to as many feeds as you want.

Popular readers include:

For Email Clients:

For Browsers:
