Time is running out to spend a buck for charity

Thanks to everyone who has reached into their pocket and kicked in a buck for charity. Hundreds of you have responded (many with more than a dollar) as eleven environmental websites team up to make the world a better place. Together, we're supporting some great charities. And you get to help choose the two from this list which will receive 100 percent of the collected donations:Please take a moment to look these organizations over. Pick your favorite, then go to our Buck for Charity Page and vote with your dollar. You can also donate directly through PayPal to this address: 1dollarcharity@gmail.com.

Summer is a lean time for charities

The summer months are always tough for charitable organizations: People are busy, discretionary funds get diverted to well-deserved vacations, and economic times are hard. To be honest, donations have slowed since our initial call, and we're playing catch-up to meet our goals.

We'd love to present the winning charities with meaningful checks. So would you please consider donating right now? Deadline is Wednesday, July 8th. Each of these charities matter, and every dollar counts.

Share this message with others

You can multiply your donation by passing this along to others. Twitter about it; email the article to friends; post it on StumbleUpon or your favorite social media service. There's still time to make a difference.

Remember: The winning charities will receive 100 percent of the donated funds. We're not holding anything back. Together, we can work for the good -- a buck at a time. Thank you for your support.

Participating websites: The Good Human, Twilight Earth, Lighter Footstep, Green Upgrader, Grass Stain Guru, My Green Side, The Smart Mama, A Little Greener Every Day, Fake Plastic Fish, Allie’s Answers, and Natural Papa. Stumble Upon Toolbar

Hi Robin, nice initiative. We do need to focus our attention more on donating for a good cause. But as you say, many other distractions divert our attention and we channel our funds to other less important things. http://climatarians.org guesses we need to be more responsible in the way we spend our money.

Money is green!

I really enjoy your blog, especially this post! I just wrote about this in my own blog too (at www.vertverdegreen.org). A lot of people don't focus on charity as a form of "going green" so to speak. I'm glad to see a blogger like you tackling this! Keep writing and check out my site if you get the chance :)
