Hello

I'm not sure if topics related to dana are in this section, so if the mods want, please move it to the apropriate place.

Some of you might know what I'm going to talk about. There's a site (actualy many, but this is the best I found) that allows you to contribute to a good cause without having to pay any money. The system is the following: there's a button on which you click in the site. After clicking it, the site redirections you to a page with some advertising. The advertisers pay for the ads and that money goes to charity. You don't have to do anything else than click buttons.

In this site there are several sections with various causes like feeding hungry people, funding mamograms, feeding animals, etc. each with its button. If you want to do a daily act of generosity bookmark the site.

Be well :)

That's a cool one Bhante. I've seen it before, particularly on Virgo's signature. :)

This is an excellent thread. Thank you all for the wonderful sites that you've provided. Are there any special permissions that I need to request before placing the url's for these sites into my signature?

No.

Signature links are generally fine as long as it's clear you're an actual Dhamma Wheel member and not a spammer.

The only exception to that rule might be if the place you were linking to was objectionable from the point of view of the Terms Of Service... but there's no problem with any of these!

Metta,
Retro. :)
