I don't know if you are aware of this website and the other five related sites. They are charities and have been around for years.  Their business model is to have people click the "Give" link once daily, and each click is counted. The actual donation is made by businesses who use part of their advertising budgets to give to charity this way (while doing some advertising on the website and hopefully selling to interested people or those shopping for gifts).
I haven't bought anything, which must disappoint the businesses, but over the years I have clicked thousands of small donations.  http://www.thehungersite.com/clickToGive/home.faces?siteId=1

Hey, I just signed up to  the new Earth Hour website for 2008 and I thought you might like to take a look and possibly sign up too. Earth Hour is on 29 March 2008 at 8pm, and it looks like it's going to be really big. So far, as well as Sydney, there'll also be Chicago, Tel Aviv, Manila, Copenhagen, Melbourne, Brisbane and Toronto all turning off their lights for an hour in the name of fighting global warming. And I'm sure there'll be more cities by March. Sign up for Earth Hour with me by visiting http://www.earthhour.org/user/JQL7 and join the movement.

In response to Prime Minister Stephen Harper's flawed drug policy, which
emphasizes increased crime control (ie. mandatory minimum sentences for
growing marijuana) rather than harm reduction and drug
policy reform, researcher and educator Dr. Susan Boyd in partnership
with Beyond Prohibition Coalition has created an educational
website... check it out!   http://www.educatingharper.com/
