If you were on Twitter a couple of weeks ago, you may have seen a lot of posts with the tag #P4A. P4A stands for Project of Awesome, which was started by John and Hank Green in 2007. Every year, YouTubers make videos about their favorite charities, and everyone is able to vote for which charities should receive a donation from the project. This year, they raised over $450,000 for charities! Just incredible! They also created a TON of awareness for several different organizations around the globe. Project for Awesome taught me about many non-profits, and people doing good.
One of these groups was Tab for a Cause. Anyone who has read this blog or any of my tweets knows that I'm a huge fan of organizations that think of creative ways for people to give back. Thanks to Tab for a Cause, if you are a Google Chrome user, you can donate to charity simply by using the Internet. All you have to do is download the Tab for a Cause Extension, and your work is done! With the extension, one of every few new tabs you open on Chrome will be directed to a donation page for one of the sponsored charities. Ad revenue from these pages is donated to the charities at the end of every fiscal quarter.
Who do they support? Educate!, Water.Org, Room to Read, and several other great charities! It's such an easy way to give back, and takes only a few moments to install. If you use Google Chrome, please check out Tab for a Cause, and don't forget to pass it on to friends!
