Some of the biggest change in our lives and in our world comes from the accumulation of tiny, everyday actions. One routine thing most of us do every day is to start up the computer and open a browser. Every browser has a customizable home screen for when the program first opens; most people set a search engine, email, or weather site as the default.
I suggest another home page – Greater Good’s “Click to give” sites. These websites represent a specific cause, and each one has a big button that can be clicked every day. When they reach a certain set goal of clicks, money is donated to the cause by sponsors. It costs you absolutely nothing but a second or two and a mouse click! They also have merchandise and other offers that give a portion of the proceeds to charity.
There are currently nine “Click to Give” sites: Hunger, Breast Cancer, Animals, Veterans, Autism, Alzheimers, Diabetes, Literacy, and Rainforest. I have the Animal site as my default, but you can choose whichever one has the most meaning to you. The sites are listed in a row up above the button, so it’s easy to go through and click the button on all of them!
By setting one of these charity sites as your homepage, you can do a little good as soon as you start up your computer, which for many of us is first thing in the morning. What a great way to start the day! 🙂
Here are instructions to change your home page on a few different browsers:
Go to the top right corner of the screen and click on the three lines. Select “Options” from the drop-down menu. An options webpage will open up. Near the center of the screen is a box where you can paste in the URL of the site you have chosen.
Go to the right top corner of the screen and click the three dots. From the drop-down menu, select “Settings”. A new drop-down will appear; near the center there is a box where you can paste in the URL of the site you have chosen.
Go to the right top corner of the screen and click the three vertical dots. From the drop-down menu, select “Settings”. A new webpage will appear; near the center, turn on “show home button” by clicking on the little grey circle. Select the dot beside “custom web address” and paste the URL into the box.
This is just one way to add a little bit of positivity and good into your day! 🙂
