No cost ways to donate to charity
When you don't have any spare cash yourself, it can seem impossible to help
those who are in even greater need, but there are now several ways to donate
without it costing you anything.
Simply by changing the way you carry out regular activities, companies will make
payments to the charity of your choice, and if you can find a couple of spare
minutes in your day, you can generate even more.
Just change your regular search engine, make online purchases through special
links and make daily visits to other sites and you can generate a significant
contribution. Choose the options below that are appropriate for you.
