Raise Money for Charity Just By Surfing the Web

Download Google's "Chrome for a Cause" extension for the Chrome Browser and begin surfing the web.  That's all you have to do-- and Google will donate money (up to a million dollars) to the charity of your choice based on how many tabs you open.

The five participating charities are:
  • The Nature Conservancy
  • Charity: Water (my favorite!!-- started by my friend and visionary, Scott Harrison)
  • Room to Read
  • Doctors Without Borders
  • Un Techo Para Mi Pais

10 tabs= 1 tree planted
10 tabs= 1 book published and donated
25 tabs= 1 vaccination treatment provided
100 tabs= 1 square foot of shelter built
200 tabs= 1 person's clean water for a year

So, what are you waiting for?  Download the extension and start clicking!  This initiative runs through Sunday, December 19th.
