Click to Give - Win a Prize

Click to Give is a quick and easy way to help six causes with a simple click of your mouse. By going to each of the tabbed causes and click on the “Click Here – It's Free!” box you can help sponsor a mammogram for an under-insured woman, help a child in need of health care (world-wide), give the value of 1.1 cups of food to the hungry, help a child attain literacy, help protect 11.4 square feet of rain forest, and give the value of .6 cups of food for rescued animals.

In addition to the free clicks, there are also hundreds of items available for sale in their stores. Not only do you help give to the causes when you purchase these items, you also help impoverished men and women all over the world who are often the craftsmen.

There are gifts for those who have everything. Don't know what to give Great-Aunt Matilda for Christmas? How about donating $14 in her name help feed a rescued horse? Or what about $24.50 for a Sterile Child Birthing Kit for a third-world woman (where women often die from a simple infection after child birth)? Or $50 to make a trained mid-wife available for 10 pregnant women and their babies.


Other items in the stores range from jewelry to clothing to household items, many made from recycled material (purses made from rejected rice bags or beads made from magazine pages). The breast cancer tab has a whole shop on “pink ribbon” items.


So, to help make this site more known, I'm giving away a prize at the end of August (bought from the site). After you've visited the site, come back here and tell me the name of one item (any item) they have for sale. That will enter in a special drawing for Victorian Bath Salts that I bought from the Click to Give Store. I'll draw for the winner on August 30th.

I have bookmarked this site and have been clicking on all the sites for several years now. They have wonderful gifts. I am particularly partial to the recycled rice bags. My fave is the Literacy Site. If you can read, you can accomplish ANYTHING!

I didn't know such a great site existed. I checked out the Best Sellers and I like Nellie's Pink Dryer Balls. What a treat not to have to mess with softener.

Hi, all. I'm just stopping in to say thanks for all the wonderful comments. I try to click on the site every day (I even get sent a reminder), but sometimes I don't make it. Still it's a very easy way to help others.

I ordered a few things from there and all were good quailty.

Thanks for stopping by my site and Click to Give's.

I really liked the 'Brazilian Wrapped Stone' necklace. This is a great site--my mom had/has breast cancer (as did her mother) so Breast Cancer Awareness is important in my family.

Thank you for helping people to be aware of this! My mom died of cancer that could have been prevented if it had been caught in time.

I clicked on the site and looked through what they had for sale... the handmade Thai paper journals look beautiful.

I clicked on all of the buttons that gave support just by clicking!
I found Confetti Stone Cuff Bracelet that I thought was really cute! My husband just got laid off so I can't buy anything now, but have bookmarked your site. I want to come back and do the supportive clicks when I think of it. Thanks! Brenda
