'Tab For A Cause' App Donates To Charity With Every New Web Browser Tab Opened

I haven’t officially made a post about this until now but over the past few weeks I have been reblogging a few posts about an amazing browser extension called, Tab for a Cause. Tab for a Cause gives you ‘hearts’ for every tab you open on your browser, these hearts can then be donated to numerous charities of your choice! Not only that, Tab for a Cause also gives you this kickass customizable platform as your browser’s home screen. You can add and customize widgets, change your background, and do a few other things all while helping people!

Where is the money coming from you may ask? Well as you’ll notice there are a couple banner advertisements in the corner each time you open a New Tab. They get paid for these advertisements, and then give all the profits to charities that partner with them. I seriously recommend you guys check out and install this amazing extension because its allowed me to raise money for numerous charities of my choice and help people simply by referring new friends and opening tabs. Its a wonderful opportunity to help people and it doesn’t take much effort! :~)

Charitable Works

Marilyn donated time and/or money to:
- A 1953 benefit for underprivileged children at Jude’s Hospital, Memphis, Tennessee - singing with Jane Russell at the Hollywood Bowl.
- WAIF - an organization that placed abandoned children in homes, after Jane Russell enlisted Marilyn’s help in 1955.
- The Arthritis and Rheumatism Foundation in 1955 - astride a pink elephant at a benefit given by Mike Todd’s Circus at Madison Square Garden, New York.
- The Milk Fund for Babies in 1957 - Marilyn decided to give earrings from the world premiere of The Prince and the Showgirl to this charity.
- Marilyn was one of the models in the 1958 March of Dimes fashion parade, that aided children with polio - held at the Waldorf-Astoria in New York.
- A children’s welfare organization that gave free breakfasts to underprivileged youngsters - a donation of $1000.
- An orphanage Marilyn visited during her 1962 trip to Mexico - she ripped up her initial check of $1000 and donated $10,000. That night was one of the few nights in her later life that she recalled sleeping without the aid of sleeping pills.
- S.A.N.E. - an organization dedicated to eliminating nuclear weapons.
- In 1962 German Bruno Bernard set up the Marilyn Monroe Memorial Fund to benefit struggling young actors.
- A muscular dystrophy benefit held at Chavez Ravin Dodger Stadium, Los Angeles, on her thirty-sixth birthday - This was Marilyn’s last public appearance.

Marilyn’s final donation to charity was the biggest. In her last will she left 25 percent of her estate (after provisions for her mother and legacies for some friends) to a former psychiatrist, Dr. Marianne Kris, “to be used for the furtherance of the work of such psychiatric institutions or groups as she shall elect.” Knowing Marilyn’s enormous love for children, Kris chose the Anna Freud Children’s Clinic of London. This behest has been used to set up the Monroe Young Family Centre, in Daleham Gardens, London.

Among friends and colleagues, Marilyn was renowned for her generosity in helping people wherever she could; stand-in Evelyn Moriarty remembers Marilyn making an anonymous donation of $1,000 to a crew member on Let’s Make Love (1960) who needed the money to cover funeral expenses for his wife.

In recognition of Marilyn’s love for and connection with children, writer Gloria Steinem and photographer George Barris set up a trust fund to help children in need, starting it off with the proceeds from the book Marilyn Norma Jeane.

THE FULFILLMENT FUND

This week’s Give Back Tuesday is dedicated to The Fulfillment Fund. The Fulfillment Fund partners with schools in Los Angeles to provide financial aid counseling and college mentoring to over 2,500 students. Their goal is to make college a reality for kids growing up in economically challenged communities. Program graduates have become doctors, lawyers and college professors dedicated to making a difference. I’m so inspired by this amazing organization - everyone deserves the opportunity to have a college education.

Help make college possible for even more kids by donating here!

Next time a charity asks for a contribution, ask them what else they’re gonna do with it.

In the wake of the Great Recession, the richest Americans are donating a smaller share of their incomes to charity, while lower- and middle-income are stepping up giving.

In a report released today, the Chronicle of Philanthropy found that Americans who earned at least $200,000 gave nearly 5% less to charity in 2012 than in 2006.

Higher-income people tend to give proportionately less during tough economic times, says Stacy Palmer, editor of the Chronicle of Philanthropy.“

The downturn was a shock to so many of them, and they’ve been nervous and cautious,” she says.

The shift has likely meant less money flowing into universities, hospitals and cultural institutions, which the wealthy tend to patronize. Lower- and middle-income donors often give to social service organizations, Palmer says. In part because these groups have had fewer dollars to give, those organizations have still faced a squeeze.

Unlike their wealthier counterparts, low- and middle-income Americans — those who made less than $100,000 — gave 5% more in 2012 than in 2006, the Chronicle found. The poorest Americans — those who took home $25,000 or less — increased their giving by nearly 17%.

SPECIAL OLYMPICS

This week’s Give Back Tuesday is dedicated to the Special Olympics, a year round, athletic training program and competition for kids and adults with disabilities. Founded by Eunice Kennedy Shriver in the late 1950s, the program began as a summer day camp for kids with intellectual disabilities and was held right in Eunice’s own backyard. Throughout the 1960s, Eunice’s admirable vision and determination led to the formation of the Special Olympics program. Impressively, Special Olympics trainings and competitions now happen worldwide 365 days a year in over 170 countries! I’m so excited the next Special Olympics Summer Games are going to be held right here in Los Angeles this summer.

Every donation to the Special Olympics helps give one more athlete the chance to fight stereotypes and compete. Learn more about how to get involved here.

Give Back Tuesday: A Walk On Water

This week’s Give Back Tuesday, I want to highlight a charity organization that is using surf as a therapeutic method for special needs children to gain self confidence. A Walk On Water provides surfing lessons, aka “water therapy” giving a positive outlet for kids whose life may be clouded with worry and other problems many of us are so lucky to live without. 

My friend, Swampy from Phineas and Ferb will be participating in a celebrity charity event this Saturday, where he will be racing to benefit A Walk On Water.
The event will be held April 11 and all proceeds will go towards the charity, so bring your family, friends, neighbors, co-workers, EVERYONE. The more, the merrier!

Signal Boost!

A local rescue in my city is looking to raise donations so they can spay and neuter 11 dogs which will soon be re-homed off a farm, where the owner is overwhelmed due to poor health and limited funds.  They’ve already rescued a 15 dogs from the property, including Scout, who was born without front legs.

The 11 dogs will eventually be removed from the property, but in the meantime, they want to be able to spay/neuter them so no more puppies are born.  If you’ve got even a couple of bucks you’re willing to spare, please visit their Canada Helps page. (You can also donate to one of the five rescues involved directly, by following the links on that page.)
