Welcome to my new series, 'Effortless Ways to Help Change the World for FREE!" In this multi-part series I'm going to share ways that you can donate or help charities, even if you don't have the funds to give them money directly. I have researched and tried these methods myself and I am excited to share them, I love giving back and helping others in need, but I know we don't always have the extra cash to donate.
Part 1 in the series is going to focus on a chrome extension called 'Tab for a Cause.' I found the extension a little over a year ago from a project for awesome video. If you would like to see their video for this year you can click here to see it.
As the name suggests, every time you open a new tab on chrome you are helping a charity. The revenue from ads will go to the charities. After you have installed the google chrome extension, you can click the extension and choose how often you want each charity to show up in your tabs.
As you can see above, Tab for a Cause supports 6 charities, water.org, Room to Read, Human Rights Watch, Conservation International, International Peace Institute, and Save the Children.
Tab for a Cause is incredibly easy to use, and something so small in your every day life can make a huge difference. How many times do you open a new tab? I can't even count how many tabs I would have opened in just an hour of being on the computer!
