World-changing Websites

Looking for websites that help you make a difference? Thankfully, with today’s technology, you can help and donate in many ways. There are sites where you can donate money for different people with different needs. There are sites where you can devote your time and do volunteer work. There are sites that allow you to share your knowledge and expertise to help the less fortunate. And there are sites that allow you to donate something and give back simply by shopping, joining a game, sharing a website or talking to people for less than an hour!

Here are some of the sites I looove.
