Give Back to the World, the Internet Makes it Easy and Free

Written by Jesse S. Somer

Giving back torepparttar world just became as easy as clicking a button on your computer screen, and it's free.

A week or so ago I wrote an article entitled, 'On-line charities are a perfect place to see how people helprepparttar 144912 world, and inspire you to join a good cause.' This is a little follow-up article just to tell you about an amazing site that a friend told me about after readingrepparttar 144913 first article. It's called and it's an incredible concept that has obviously struck a chord with many people, as there are now several links for five other similarly constructed sites. The main concept is that if visitors go torepparttar 144914 site and simply click onrepparttar 144915 button 'Give free food-Click here', 1.1 cups of staple food will be given to undernourished and starving human beings inrepparttar 144916 world. How can this be true? All we have to do is click a button and food is given to hungry people? Yesterday alonerepparttar 144917 site had given a total of 148,735 cups of food. Since its inception on June 1, 1999 (6years in existence), over 417 million cups of food have been given byrepparttar 144918 site's sponsors and supporters.

This is how it works. The site is sponsored by many organizations,repparttar 144919 two main ones beingrepparttar 144920 Mercy Corps and America's Second Harvest. The sponsors have to pay to have their banners advertised and all ofrepparttar 144921 proceeds go torepparttar 144922 charity. After you make a clickrepparttar 144923 many sponsors' ads come up and one hasrepparttar 144924 opportunity to buy merchandise or give donations that go directly torepparttar 144925 cause. To give food you don't have to buy anything, just click, but I figure that people who buy things and give a little extra are what makerepparttar 144926 system work. I don't really know exactly how it does function, butrepparttar 144927 site stipulates that you can go back every day and just clicking onrepparttar 144928 button gives people food. They want you to tell your friends and colleagues of course, and I guessrepparttar 144929 more visitorsrepparttar 144930 site receives,repparttar 144931 more chance that people also purchase a few items from what looks to be like very reputable organizations.

What is Phishing?

It is when someone creates false email that pretends to be from a bank or other authority, but which is actually designed to collect sensitive information such as passwords. This process of stealing information used for fraudulent purposes isrepparttar 144913 latest problem to plague Internet users. It is a phenomenon know as phishing i.e. emails 'fishing' for important information.

Just like Spam, phishing mails are sent torepparttar 144914 widest possible audience so it's not unusual to receive a message asking you to confirm account details from an organization you do not actually deal with. You may be asked to fix up your eBay account when you haven't even got one!

In addition to collecting sensitive information many phishing messages try to install spy ware, Trojans etc. allowing hackers to gain backdoor entry into computers.
