    Maybe I am too cynical, but how can merely clicking on a button pay to feed animals? Where does the money come from? If clicking on the button really does pay for .6 bowls of food, then someone must be getting something of value from those who do the clicking. Maybe there is something on that page, like a web bug, that harvests information from every person who clicks on the button. Without knowing what is going on, maybe you are, in effect, unknowingly granting permission for the site to access data in your computer. Maybe your e-mail address, maybe your name. If a few hundred thousand kind or soft hearted people pass this address around, then maybe the owners of the site can collect enough information to sell to spammers for some real money. Even if this is so, how do you know whether or not a legitimate charitable organization will ever get one thin dime of that money? I doubt it!

    Personally I'd rather there were people posting links like this (thanks Sweetchick & Angel) that have a fighting chance of being genuine and therefore benefitting a cause which is deserving of at the very least a few seconds of my time.

    If you want something to be cynical about Mower, then you should consider the likes of David Blaine and his 'heroic' 44 day fool-a-thon where he has managed to dupe millions of supposedly 'intelligent' people into watching him 'starve' himself in a glass box for 44 days. This is REAL cynicism, when you consider how many men, women and especially children are dying daily from genuine starvation.

    Mowergun: From the human feed faq page. :)

    How does the site work? Who pays for the food?

    The site's sponsors pay for your daily click. The sponsors purchase tiles on the Thank You page for a certain amount of time. The Hunger Site then tabulates the number of people who click during that time frame and bill the sponsor for the appropriate amount. The Hunger Site divides the monies between two leading hunger relief organizations: America's Second Harvest and Mercy Corps."

    Take care and it's ok to wonder about things like you do...I do the same! :) You're welcome Topkat! :) Take care. angel

    thanks for the link so others can contribute

    been clicking ALL the links on that page (on the top navigation tabs and bottom of each page too) for some time
    - started with the breast cancer link, then decided, what's a few more clicks?

    and mowerman
    - sometimes you just have to believe that good people are doing good things
    - it's good to have security concerns too, but firewalls, routers, antivirus software, browser settings etc will help you with those, and still leave you connected to the internet and all it has to offer (and avoid ;))
