Charities look for donations all the time.

But you know, it's easy to forget, until the next time there is a crisis.

There's a solution though. Almost all of them allow for monthly subscription, via Direct Debit, Credit Card, Debit Card. And that small sum of money each month can make a huge difference, and yet be almost entirely un-noticed in the monthly expenses. Especially at this time of year, when so much money gets turned into festivities.

Here is your challenge.

Find me a link to a charity subscription page.
Post it here.
Select one listed, it doesn't matter which and sign up for the monthly subscription, it doesn't matter how much.

Then copy and paste this text and post it in your journal.

Charities (updated as I get them):
Amnesty UK Supporting Human Rights around the world
Oxfam Works against poverty and suffering, especially in 3rd world countries
RSPCA Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals
Guide Dogs for the blind
Best Friends Animal Sanctuary, Utah
Blesma Supporting ex-servicemen who have lost limbs
St Dunstans
The Charity Directory

Guide Dogs for the Blind.

http://www.guidedogs.org.uk/donate

Been sponsoring a guide dogs for a few years now. Very worthwhile and you also get to see the dog progress with reports from the handlers and the eventual receipiant.

It is also worth considering getting a credit card that pays an amount to a charity. You get to spend as you did before, it doesn't cost you anything 'cos you set up a Direct Debit to pay it off in full each month, you even get a bonus of an entire months spending for free (well, until you retire anyway) and you give money to a charity of your choice.

One for Amnesty (Who are, techinically, not a charity).

I already do monthly donations to several charities. The one I recommend as most efficient, innovative, and effective, is the Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in Utah.

Here's the link for monthly donation.

It's not quite what you're asking for, but www.thecharitypot.com is a funky way of giving, with a bit of a competitive element.
