It is a fantastic positive feeling to know that just by clicking every day you support causes that provide lasting results.
If you want to do this, the easiest way is to save a specific flik that opens up when you start your browser, this is a great reminder to click everyday.

Here´s how:
1) Choose for example the first cause (or any cause you want to support)
To make it easy to remember all 6 causes helped by The Greater Good Network, I start my clicks with the first cause and work through all six as they can be reached through just one link.
It´s very quick and simple to do.

Here is the link to the first website

How to for:
Internet explorer users:
On your Browser panel click on Tools, scroll down to Internet options,General,
Follow the instructions for homepage tabs, then highlight the tabs you want to open when you start your browser and click on  Use Current. The links you have highlighted will start up each time you open your browser.(this does not mean you have to click everytime, but the tab will always be available as a reminder.

Firefox users
How to make a set of tabs your start pages
If you have multiple tabs open, you can make that set of tabs open up when you start Firefox:
Don´t forget to add this link in a new tab within the set

1. At the top of the Firefox window, click on the Tools menu, and select Options...
2. Select the General panel (Main panel in Firefox 3.5).
3. In the Startup section, click Use Current Pages.
4. Click OK to close the options window.

All great causes, and thanks for pointing them out. Wouldn't it be great if we could wake up one day and know that no one will go to bed hungry.

let's hope and pray!

Thanks for stopping by my site, and have a happy New year
