"Over 35 million dollars have been donated and by the end of the year, it will be over 40 millions," Rena Rasmussen of Greater Good told me. Those numbers can't be ignored, and Greater Good is proud to be making a difference in the world.
The GreaterGood network of websites started with one simple idea: take one action everyone does every day – a click on a website – and turn it into a force for good. The Hunger Site was the first to launch in 1999. Sponsors would pay to have their ads viewed on The Hunger Site’s thank-you page; each click would be recorded and generate sponsor funds, and those funds went directly to charity to provide food for people in need. In the first nine months, the site funded more than nine million pounds of food for the hungry.

Sixteen years later, Greater Good has over 10 different online shops and thousands of products reaching out to support people, pets and the planet. You can find links to each of the sites at the bottom of this post. There really is a cause for everyone!
