Holiday Gift Giving

While you are browsing the internet for holiday gifts, checking your email, or doing anything online, take a few minutes to make a difference for others and have fun at the same time. Some of these ideas have been mentioned on CCC before, but perhaps they've been been tossed aside in the hustle and bustle of life.
For example, visit and play Bow Wow Trivia and Meow Trivia. You'll learn more about our four-legged friends and every question you attempt means a donation of kibble to animal shelters.
You can build you vocabulary and help the UN World Food Program fight hunger at For every correct answer 10 grains of rice is donate. Don't think that sounds like much? In the past three years over 71 billion grains of rice have been donated through the site. Not to mention how many new words have been learned.
Still have some holiday shopping? Going to buy some things online? Well, you can shop 'till you drop and make donations to a favorite charity at Good Shop (a companion site of Good Search). Pick your favorite charity (from more than 85,000!) and then link through the site to shop at big online merchants ranging from Amazon to Zales. Your purchase earns donations ranging from about 1% of the purchase price all the way up to 30%. While you are exploring the charities and merchants on Good Shop, check out Good Search - every time you search the internet through the site a donation is made to your favorite charity.
Happy Holidays!
