With only a click—here—you can test your vocabulary at Word Dynamo. Not a bad return on your investment.
With the same click—here—you can not only test your vocabulary but also facilitate a donation of 10 grains of rice to the UN World Food Programme, and it continues for every definition you choose correctly.
That’s because the second click takes you to Free Rice, one of the many Web sites that make a donation to a charity in exchange for you clicking a link. That link sends you to a page with advertisements, and the advertisers are the ones that make the donation, not you.
While Free Rice’s word game might keep you clicking, you might prefer something less challenging, like, say, just pressing your finger without having to read any words other than click here. If that’s more your speed, bookmark some of the sites below, several of which support causes that reach beyond the borders of the US.
The Greater Good Network:
- The Hunger Site
- The Child Health Site
- The Literacy Site
- The Breast Cancer Site
- The Veterans Site
- The Autism Site
- The Rainforest Site
- The Animal Rescue Site
Another place with opportunities to click for several issues is Click to Give, with these categories:
And finally, there are these options at Care2:
- Stop Violence
- Breast Cancer
- Global Warming
- Animal Rescue
- Big Cats
