So I found this great way to help donate money to some very deserving schools and help the planet at the same time! Recyclebank is this great site where you can earn rewards points by learning about and doing things that help the environment. I earned 70 points within approximately 10 mins., and I still have tons more I can get, by simply pointing and clicking. You can exchange the points for various rewards, including donating to schools that are participating in their Recyclebank Green Schools Program.
The schools involved have created green plans that they wish to implement. Recyclebank will give $1 to the school for every 250 points donated. So what are you waiting for? Go click, donate, help out a school. Even if you are only able to donate a small amount every little bit helps, right? And be sure to go soon they end the donating period on March 15th, 2012!
