4 Free Things You Can Do To Make the World a Better Place (That Don't Involve Donating or Volunteering)

Last December, GenTwenty published an article about free ways you can donate your trash to good causes. Below are 4 more easy ways you can make the world a better place without putting in much effort at all.

4 Free Things You Can Do To Make the World a Better Place

Tabs for a Cause

Tabs for a Cause is a Google Chrome extension that gains ad revenue for charity.

Every time you open a new tab, a few ads will appear at the bottom and the company gives you a ‘heart.’ As you collect hearts (from opening tabs), you can choose from a number of charities to designate those hearts to, and Tabs for a Cause will give a higher percentage of ad revenue to the charities with more hearts.

Some examples of charities included are Action Against Hunger,, The Foundation to Decrease Worldsuck, and Conservation International.

Charity Miles

If you regularly walk, run, bike or even dance, you can easily use that to increase donations to charities of your choice.

Before working out, open the app and select which type of exercise you’ll be doing and which charity you’d like the money to go to. After your finished, whichever company sponsors that charity will donate based on your amount of activity.

Charities include Stand Up to Cancer, the ASPCA, Habitat for Humanity, the ALS Association and so many more.

Auto-Like for YouTube

Another Google Chrome extension, this one allows you to support your favorite YouTubers. The extension will click on the “Like” button automatically after you’ve watched either 2 minutes or 50% of the video. It helps increase their engagement without you having to remember to like every video you watch and it won’t override if you’ve disliked the video.

Donate a Photo

You can donate one photo a day on the app and Johnson & Johnson will give $1 to a charity of your choice. Charities include Operation Smile, Girl Up, USO, Setting Scoliosis Straight, and Children’s Miracle Network Hospital.
