Day 358: Downloaded Tab For A Cause
In May, I found a quick and easy random act of kindness that anyone can do to raise money for many different charities. It was called GoodSearch, and any time you did a websearch on their site (rather than using Yahoo or Google) money would be donated to a given charity by advertisers. I like doing easy acts like these so that anyone can do them, and I recently found another one that might be the easiest random act I have ever done. All I did was click on my Firefox browser (or you can use Google Chrome) and opened up a new tab. A group of college students created Tab For A Cause, and extension for web browsers where advertisers on the site will donate to charities each time you open up a new tab. So today, for my random act of kindness, I downloaded Tab For A Cause and started donating by clicking. I needed to do something easy today because my family and I are traveling to Santa Cruz, California to spend the holidays with my wife's family. I said yesterday that this was going to be my first ever warm weather Christmas (the others with her family were in Montana), and I am not sure I am ready for it. Although I guess the weather there isn't supposed to be very warm, so maybe Mother Nature is trying to make me feel at home. I am sure my wife is going to point out every single nice house that is for sale while we are there, so I better prepare myself mentally for that.
