Another really easy way to help

I found this idea pretty creative and it seems to be very effective. It is based in getting support for humanitarian causes through small messages that work as personal signatures in our daily sent Reply for allemails.

It’s really simple, you just have to go to the replyforall webpage, register yourself and choose the cause you want to support:

  • find a cure for cancer,
  • stop global AIDS,
  • defend animal rights,
  • fight global warming,
  • and a lot more.

You also need to choose your email provider (right now it only works with Gmail, Yahoo or Hotmail), a type of signature and finally add your personal info.

Yes, it is that simple.

Earth Hour: March 28

VOTE EARTHOnly 9 days left for Earth Hour 2009. It doesn’t matter where in the world you are, at 8:30 pm on March 28 we must turn the lights off for an hour.

Earth Hour began in Australia in 2007, and in 2008, 35 countries and more than 370 cities joined the cause. This year 1,760 cities in 80 countries have commited to vote for our planet.

Why vote?

If you turn off the lights, you will be voting for Earth. The goal is to reach the target of 1 billion votes and present them at the Global Climate Change Conference in Copenhangen where official government policies will be determined against global warming.

Join! and remember:

« March 28 from 8:30 pm to 9:30 pm »

There is NO easier way to help

According to the United Nations around 25,000 people die each day due to hunger or causes related to hunger. Most of them are children.

There are approximately 850 million people undernourished (13% of the world population) and this number is still rising.

The freerice.com webpage donates 20 grains of rice each time you answer a question correctly (yes, it is that simple). It’s a win-win relation: you learn a little bit about art, languages, math, geography and chemistry,  and the site donates 100% (yes, 100%) of their income to the World Food Program of the United Nations thanks to the sponsors’ support.

Since its creation in October 2007, the site has fed more than 2 million people worldwide.

Today, I donated 1720 grains of rice. It seems it’s nothing at all, but what matters here is that each one of us contribute with a grain of sand… ¿or rice?
