Any truly modern tightwad knows that you can be charitable without removing your arm, leg, or giving away your firstborn. This charitable spirit is what differentiates the MT from its scrooge-like predecessors.

On the right you will see a few of my favorite click-thru charities. Free Rice gives, what else, free rice to impoverished people through a UN food program for answering trivia questions. The Hunger Site and The Animal Rescue Site allow you to feed people and pets (and if you’re feeling spendy they do have advertisers that sponsor the site). Lastly free kibble and free kibblekat was started by a 12-year-old girl who wanted to help her animal shelter; it’s modeled after Free Rice’s trivia base and has served almost 700,000 meals to hungry pets.

I will add to the list as time goes on, and if you know of something that should go on this list drop me a note. These sites allow people to support charity regardless of their financial standing, the only requirement is access to a computer, the internet, and their heart.
