You know those daily deal sites? Philanthroper is another one of those. But instead of selling something, the site shares the story of a new 501(c)3 nonprofit every day. And if you'd like, you can give them $1 (or up to $10). Philanthroper is trying to make doing good a habit.
We’re not a charity, we’re a group of people committed to helping others. Every week, 52x52.org will highlight a different charity and call on you, those willing and happy to help others, to donate directly to that charity. Don’t feel like donating to one of the featured charities for whatever reason? No problem. Donate to a cause you love.
You've probably heard of the Six Degrees concept. Any one person (including me, Kevin Bacon) is connected to any other person through six or fewer relationships, because it's a small world. SixDegrees.org is about using this idea to accomplish something good. It's social networking with a social conscience.
Through this website, you can support your favorite charities by donating or creating fundraising badges — as well as check out the favorite causes of other people, including celebrities. You can also pay it forward with Good Cards® - gift cards for charity that can be redeemed as a donation to more than 1 million charities.
Not your average online trivia game. Freerice is an online educational game, that allows you to raise 10 grains of rice for every correct answer you choose.

BRAC is a development success story, spreading solutions born in Bangladesh to 10 other countries around the world – a global leader in creating opportunity for the world’s poor. What started out as a limited relief operation in 1972 in a remote village of Bangladesh, has turned into the largest development organization in the world. Organizing the poor using communities’ own human and material resources, it catalyzes lasting change, creating an ecosystem in which the poor have the chance to seize control of their own lives. We do this with a holistic development approach geared toward inclusion, using tools like microfinance, education, healthcare, legal services, community empowerment and more. Our work now touches the lives of an estimated 126 million people, with staff and BRAC-trained entrepreneurs numbering in the hundreds of thousands.
FREE the NEEDhttp://www.freetheneed.org/index.html
FREE the NEED was founded on the idea that there is enough of what people need to go around. By collecting surplus, volunteers have been able to 'free the need' of the basic necessities for thousands of families. With these needs met, families can put their energy into pursuing a better life, getting an education, giving something better to their children, fulfilling their potential in a country that encourages them to dream.
