Do you know about The Rainforest Site, The Hunger Site, etc?
http://www.therainforestsite.com/clickToGive/home.faces and the others are on tabs at the top.
I've been clicking every day since they started, which must be about 7 or 8 years ago, so I must have saved about 3200m of rainforest, given 3200 cups of food, helped not-sure-how-many children to not go blind or die of dysentry, all by a few clicks. I know it's not much, but it's something. I get the email reminders, otherwise I might forget, and some of the links have led me to other organisations, like Survival International, Rainforest Action Network, Don'tBuySFI, Mercy Corps, all of which are now on my favourite keep-up-with-information and/or give-a-bit-when-I-can lists.

You know when you have a stupid, wasted day - well, at least when you've clicked on those, you know it hasn't been 100% stupid and wasted.
oink!

I just clicked :-)

...and me and I've got it on my favourites now (but I can't see how it works )

Dyou see on the left, where it says:
Sign Up and Give More
Remember to Click?
Well, either of those will open a new little window, where you fill in your email address to get daily reminders. (I think you can choose Mon-Fri or include weekends.) Also, they give an extra amount when you sign up.

Coo, look at this:
"Today, you and others have generated the value of 192,949 cups of food. Thank you! (Please note that the click value updates every ten minutes.)
Your clicks count! Since The Hunger Site began in 1999, together we have generated funding for more than 500,000,000 cups of food for hungry people world-wide. Please see the results page to learn more about how you have helped."
and
"Today, you and others have helped 2,331 children with your daily click. Thank you! (Please note that the click value updates every ten minutes.)

Your clicks count! Since The Child Health Site began in 2002, together we have helped more than 2,000,000 children with vital healthcare services."
and
" Today, you and others have generated the value of 1,542,397 square feet of rainforest land. Thank you! (Please note that the click value updates every ten minutes.)

Your clicks count! Since The Rainforest Site began in 2000, together we have funded the protection and preservation of more than 41,000 acres of rainforest habitat."

Not good enough, especially the rainforest, but not bad.
