    This site allows anyone in possession of a computer and the internet to donate food, money and resources to charities linked to world hunger, breast cancer, illiteracy, the rainforest and animal shelters completely and absolutely free. There is no registration, fee, names, numbers or anything required; and it takes three seconds to do.

    How many of you will make this your homepage and how many of you will forget about it tomorrow (or never even go)? Can you really call yourself a religionist if your three seconds is worth more to you than these causes? How much do you really care about others? I invite comments and discussion. See if anything about the daily results strikes you as odd.

    My sociology class a long time ago discussed these things for a good month. It's very revealing. Humanity does not make a good case for itself when these things are uncovered.

    I completely agree that we must do something and not talk about it, but how many of these are legitimate organizations?

    They all are. Look it over, all the information is there to study. I may have forgotten to provide a link:

    You have checked every one of them out thoroughly? Every penny of the money you give them goes to the place it is intended, not taken by the leaders of the organization?

    *shrugs* OK, if it isn't legitimate, then I've just spent a few seconds doing absolutely no good. Unlike the rest of my average day, of course. I mean, I'm not losing anything here. You are giving no money here, keep in mind. They make it from the advertisers on the site.

    I will show you a man who if you eat his bread you will never hunger agian.

    I will show you a man who can cure all kinds of cancer, and even if you Die you will live agian.

    I'll show you A man who can take an uneducated person in the form of peter and make him into a cheif diciple.

    That website might be able to donate money but it is not money that they need it is light, truth, and the ressurection. And we find that in a person and that person is Christ

    I've added the site to my favorites. Now comes the trick of getting into the habit of visiting it every day.

    Well, alright, that's well and good, I suppose, but people do, in fact, need to eat, and rainforests are pretty good if you're fond of oxygen, and treatments for cancer are really great when you or someone you care about has it, and d'you really think it's a bad thing to donate money or time or whatever to good causes? Can't you do that as well as proselytize?

    That is an awesome concept Dan.

    It is my home page and I will go nowhere on the web until I`ve clicked that button.

    Thank you.

    Hey, thank you. It blew my mind when I found out about this website. I'm shocked that I've NEVER spoken to anyone who knew about it.

    As true as this is (and I've spent years of my life in other countries doing only that) we are Christ's hands, and hunger and pain is very real. We cannot ignore it. Read Matthew 25:35-40 and James 1:27.
