Here are a several more easy ways to assist children in volunteering on a regular basis. Like those in the previous post, all you need is Internet access, a little time and the willingness to make a few clicks a day. Be sure to supervise all youngsters when they are online.
Click to Donate Programs
For the nonprofits mentioned below, your clicks equate to increased donations from their sponsors.
Care2 is probably one of the largest and longest-running free click-to-donate programs. Its website provides a simple way to assist the following causes.
To Help Animals
Big Cats: donations go to the Wildlife Conservation Society to protect vanishing habitat for endangered big cats; so far, 519,736 people have protected 15,719,268 acres of big cat habitat through this program.
Pets: donations go directly to The HSUS, which advocates for local humane societies and operates its own network of animal sanctuaries, providing care and homes to more animals than any other national animal protection organization in the United States; so far, 425,657 people have helped feed 14,564,235 pets in shelters through this program.
Primates: donations raised go directly to the Jane Goodall Institute, which runs sanctuaries in Africa where orphaned chimpanzees can be cared for and given the chance to live reasonably full lives in spacious conditions. Clicks help JGI feed these rescued primates, and this program has fed rescued primates 14,540,956 times so far.
Seals: donations raised go directly to the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW). Your clicks make it possible for IFAW seal hunt observers to continue documenting the cruelty of the hunt, and to keep fighting to ensure we pass historic legislation to ban seal products and end the hunt worldwide.

To Help Natural Systems
Oceans: donations raised go to Oceana to save our oceans through policy, advocacy and research; Oceana’s scientists, lawyers and advocates work around the world to protect corals, make seafood safe, save sea turtles and more; 37,538 acres of oceans have been protected so far through this program.
Rainforests: donations go directly to The Nature Conservancy, which has protected over 119 million acres of land and 5,000 miles of rivers worldwide; clicks have saved more than 8,500 acres of rainforest so far.
