If you have an MSN screen-name, you can use Windows Live Messenger to raise money for all sorts of causes across the globe. Microsoft has started this initiative called “i’m”, and basically, every time you start a conversation using i’m, Microsoft shares a portion of the program’s advertising revenue with some of the world’s most effective organizations dedicated to social causes.
If you’re a person of faith, this is such a perfect way to empower your normal day-to-day actions to “reach out to the homeless and the loveless in their plight” (cf. James 2:27).
To get started, you just specify which org you want i’m to contribute to in the Options menu in Windows Live Messenger. No additional personal info to provide. Then, any time you have an i’m conversation, Microsoft donates to the issues you feel most passionate about, including poverty, child protection, disease, and environmental degradation.
It’s simple. Do it. Go here to sign up.
My i’m conversations benefit the Red Cross. Who will you help?
